I thought I could not be surprised by the former Bush administration, but the release of legal memos produced by the Bush Justice Department lawyers is appalling.
After 9/11, according to the Bush lawyers, the president could authorize listening in on conversations of Americans, use military force against Americans, arrest and detain indefinitely any American, search and seize the property of any American without a warrant and suppress free speech and the media in America.
America is not a police state, and we have constitutional protections against these acts. If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention. A full investigation into these legal opinions is absolutely necessary. No one is above the law, and these lawbreakers should be brought to justice.
