Congress allows George Bush to enact martial law

Welcome to martial law.
Moments ago President Bush signed the Military Commission Act into law, stating “This bill provides legal protections that ensure our military and intelligence personnel will not have to fear lawsuits filed by terrorists simply for doing their jobs.

[The] legality of the system I established was challenged in the court, and the Supreme Court ruled that the military commissions needed to be explicitly authorized by the United States Congress. And so I asked Congress for that authority, and they have provided it.”
If that's not authorising and enabling martial law, I don't know what is.
The Military Commissions Act is not a speculative notion. It is law, already being implemented and now codified.
As an American, your rights have disappeared. You don't even have to be an American either, as there's a lot of the Act that's related to legal and illegal immigrants.

For any reason - or for no reason at all - you can be declared an enemy combatant and you WILL be arrested, taken away, and held indefinitely. No trial, no defence, no hope.

Well done America. You've done a fantastic job of allowing your fears to come true.
