Olbermann: “Why does habeas corpus hate America?”

Keith did a great report tonight on what the recently passed Military Commissions Act of 2006 means to America and our Constitution.

AND MSNBC COUNTDOWN on-line: [link to www.msnbc.msn.com]

This story has been buried by Foleygate, which is a crime in itself. I had the honor of hearing Daniel Ellsberg [link to en.wikipedia.org] and John Siegenthaler Sr. [link to en.wikipedia.org] speak last night and the key subject was journalism in today's political environment. We are one of the only countries in the world without an official secrets act, due in a large part to the uniqueness of our first amendment. Sadly this very bill puts us even closer to enacting such legislation and putting a muzzle on the media that would have prevented the extraordinary act of patriotism that Ellsberg exhibited, as well as those that followed in the entire Watergate scandal.

Transcript available below the fold.


---------- MSNBC COUNTDOWN TRANSCRIPT ----------


Because the Mark Foley story began to break the night of September 28th, exploding the following day, many people may not have noticed a bill passed by the Senate that night.

Our third story on the Countdown tonight, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and what it does to something called "habeas corpus."

And before we reduce the very term "habeas corpus" to something vaguely recalled as sounding kinda like the cornerstone of freedom, or maybe kinda like a character from "Harry Potter," we thought a Countdown Special Investigation was in order.

Congress passed The Military Commissions Act to give Mr. Bush the power to deal effectively with America's enemies — those who seek to harm this country.

And he has been very clear about who that is:

"…for people to leak that program, and for a newspaper to publish it does great harm to the United States of America."

So the president said it was urgent that Congress send him this bill as quickly as possible, not for the politics of next month's elections, but for America.

"The fact that we're discussing this program is helping the enemy."

Because time was of the essence–and to ensure that the 9/11 families would wait no longer–as soon as he got the bill, President Bush whipped out his pen and immediately signed a statement saying he looks forward to signing the actual law…eventually.

He hasn't signed it yet, almost two weeks later, because he has been swamped by a series of campaign swings at which he has made up quotes from unnamed Democratic leaders, and because when he is actually at work, he's been signing so many other important bills, such as:

The Credit Rating Agency Reform Act;

the Third Higher Education Extension Act;

ratification requests for extradition treaties with Malta, Estonia and Latvia;

his proclamation of German-American Day;

the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Act;

and his proclamation of Leif Erikson Day.

I saw it on TV and he made the point very well.

I almost think this Foley gate thing was cover for this bill being passed and it seems to be working very well.

Bush has yet to sign it......I wonder why.

Maybe just maybe the other shoe will drop when he does?

Or maybe something needs to happen first?

Watching to see.........

Thanks, BMG!

Yeah, it seems like Foley was the sacrifice, doesn't it. I'll bet they didn't expect the repercussions about Foley to be so far reaching though.

Olbermann's the only one I've seen on mainstream t-v showing any courage in standing up to the slime in DC that's passing itself off as our current administration.
