Now Playing: Good Job Supreme Court & Same to The United Nations
HELLO Z 3 READERS ....HAVE I GOT A COUPLE STORIES FOR YOU TODAY
FIRST - The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday that President George W. Bush overstepped his authority in ordering military war crimes trials for Guantanamo Bay detainees, saying in a strong rebuke that the trials were illegal under U.S. and international law.
The court declared 5-3 that the trials for 10 foreign terror suspects violate U.S. military law and the Geneva conventions
It was a broad defeat for the U.S. government, which two years ago suffered a similar loss when the high court held the president lacked authority to seize and detain terrorism suspects and indefinitely deny them access to courts or lawyers.
The ruling raises major questions about the legal status of the approximately 450 men still being held at the U.S. military prison in Cuba and exactly how, when and where the administration might pursue the charges against them.
It seems likely to further fuel international criticism of the U.S. administration, including many U.S. allies, for its handling of the terror war detainees at Guantanamo in Cuba, Abu Ghraib in Iraq and elsewhere.
White House counselor Dan Bartlett said the administration's task now is mostly technical - trying to determine how to design military tribunals that would pass muster under the decision. Republican senators said they would co-operate.(Full article --> HERE! <--)
Notice how the Republicans are going to "co-operate fully" by blindly endorsing their liar n chiefs technical challenges"
WHAT A LOAD OF POO ....this whole overstepping authority has many roots to deal with .....i am ready to do some gardening right along with the Supreme Court.
SECOND - By Stephanie Nebehay
Thu Jun 29, GENEVA - The United Nations Human Rights Council
on Thursday unanimously approved an international treaty that would ban states from abducting perceived enemies and hiding them in secret prisons or killing them
The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance would require states to keep registers of detainees and tell their families the truth about their disappearance, as well as paying compensation.

In this article it is absurd that the UN has to create a law to cover the USA sneaky ass way we have been skirting the intention or design of the laws. We (the US) act like a two-bit backwood lawyer that is just one snakey step away from a prison term. Shadowy loophole exploitations of International Human Rights. Flying prisoner to far away secret prisons in countries that have horrible Human Rights Abuse Records. I mean are we as deranged as this looks ....that now International laws are being written because of us? Pretty damn shameful isn't it my fellow Patriot readers
