New Boss same as The Old Boss?

Obama proposed a new system of Indefinite Preventive Detention yesterday in his National Security speech that is stunning in its illegality.

Obama is proposing we keep people locked up not for the crimes they have committed and we prove they committed in a court of law, but on the chance that they might commit crimes in the future. There will be no trial, for no crime exists to be charged. There is only the nebulous threat of "future acts" to justify depriving people of their liberty potentially indefinitely.

Is this justice? Leave a comment.

  1. Indefinite Preventive Detention...yeah, that's justice, if authoritarian police states are "Justice". I wonder if the Go Obama crowd like Olbermann and Rachel will continue to criticize him for long...probably not.
