Fascism Watch Update: Stop The Graham/Bingaman Amendment

-- by Gary Boatwright

From Talk Left Seventeen Myths About the Graham Habeas Amendment from the Center for Constitutional Rights.

Update from Obsidian Wings Habeas and Guantanamo: Breaking News

There are two new amendments.

The AP, Reuters, and the Washington Post have all written articles on these provisions. The Post article says the Levin/Kyl/Graham Amendment might be linked to the McCain amendment in an effort to get both of them through conference. I don't know if that's true, and I don't know if it's a good deal or a bad deal if it is true. At this point I don't trust Graham at all, and I don't trust McCain much. The only advice I can give is to name a few of the Congressmen in Washington who I think are the most trustworthy and dedicated on this issue: Levin, Durbin, Bingaman, Leahy, Feingold, Kennedy. Markey and I think also Murtha in the House. If you don't know what's going on, find out what they're doing and ask your own reps. to do the same.

It's time for the Democratic leadership to at least pretend they have the balls God gave a Tufted Titmouse and stop this farce in its tracks. Objection to unanimous consent should do it. If Paul Wellstone could do it so can any Democratic Senator with an ounce of backbone.
