...During the 8 years of GWB:
Library books are monitored
The writ of habeas corpus, a privilege not a right, is not extended to enemy combatants captured in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Federal Government monitors international phone calls and international monetary transactions.
wouldn't the library books be the property of the government? if so, then wouldn't they have the right to monitor books?
do we want habeas corpus given to our enemies that don't even wear uniforms?
