Justices To Decide Legality
Of Indefinite Detention

by Robert Barnes - December 6th, 2008 - Washington Post

The court said it will review the case of Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri, a Qatari national studying in Illinois when he was seized in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and held in a Navy brig for more than five years without formal charges.

The case will present President-elect Barack Obama with an immediate decision on whether to endorse President Bush's aggressive use of executive power or to strike a new path in how the country confronts those suspected of planning additional al-Qaeda attacks.

The Supreme Court has ruled against the Bush administration four times on cases that involve the assertion of executive power with limited judicial review. Most recently, the court ruled 5 to 4 that terrorism suspects held at the naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have the right to challenge their detention in federal court.

Once again the seizure of power is of more concern to the 9 contemptible justices who rule our nation than following the Constitution they swore to uphold. Nothing in the Constitution grants rights to enemies of our nation to seek protection and redress of their grievances. However the courts are far more concerned with protecting those who attack America than with protecting our nation from attack.

The question of whether Barack Obama is qualified under the "natural born" clause of the Constitution is ignored on the same day that the right to freely oppose America amd handicap federal officials charged with our defense through stupid rules designed to protect citizens being extended to foreigners, makes the real agenda of the 9 tyrants unquestionably clear.

The most corrupt power on earth is the power to destroy a nation from within. That is exactly what our courts are doing.
