I’m not sure this has been discussed enough. The President was given authority, by the Military Commissions Act, to ‘disappear’ you.

The MCA gave the president the authority to declare anyone an “enemy combatant”. Anyone.

This means that if they don’t like your politics, you can go to a black site in some ass-backwards country and be tortured with impunity. With no legal recourse.

This is the bill that the Democrats could not possibly vote against in September of 2006, because every Serious Person in Washington knew that standing up for the Constitution was a losing issue come voting day.

What is happening to America?
