Another Disappointing Day For Dubya

According to CNN -- "In another legal setback for the Bush administration, a federal appeals court has concluded terrorist suspects held in secret U.S. custody on foreign soil deserve access to lawyers and the American legal system."

Does anyone really find this to be a groundbreaking decision? Does anyone really think we can continue to deny these people - regardless of the charges - their legal rights? And sure, I know their foreign nationals for the most part but shouldn't we, as a people, be willing to spot them some rights they might not ordinarily have? What's the worst that can happen? We find out they're innocent and set them free? The horror!

Apparently Dubya doesn't believe in protecting civil rights but he's all for the freedom to do stupid things.

I am hoping he will lose the next election. Bush makes me ill. He's a nutjob.

I mean we can't just detain these people for the rest of their lives now can we? I'm tired of paying for everyone else's meat and potatoes.
