Turning Japanese, I Think We’re Turning Japanese, I Really Think So

I mean, when Dear Reader, whose favorite former president is FDR (follow that link) signs something like this

The White House is signing off on a controversial new law that would authorize the U.S. military to arrest and indefinitely detain alleged al Qaeda members or other terrorist operatives captured on American soil.

I’m not especially fond of words like “alleged” and “indefinitely” here.

Add in a little context (Follow that one too)

Suddenly, the title of this entry sounds a bit less whimsical.

  1. The President and his minions need to read up on US law. It is illegal for the US military to perform any police powers on US soil. Those powers are restricted to the local, state and national POLICE authorities. That is one reason the National Guardsmen that are working the Mexican border are there only to watch and report. They have no arrest powers but can only notify the Border Patrol when they catch illegals crossing the border.

  2. Senator Lindsay Graham on detaining American citizens indefinately without charges……

    ,” he said. “And when they say, ‘I want my lawyer,’ you tell them, ‘Shut up. You don’t get a lawyer.'”

    You have to expect this kind of crap from the left, but this passed with Republican votes.

    Is it still possible to salvage this mess, or did we wait too long?
