RESTORE HABEAS CORPUS.  NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY, WHAT MATTERS IS WHAT WE SAY!sm
With virtually no advance notice the Republican majority in the Senate approved a last minute amendment to the Defense Authorization Act to deny U.S. courts jurisdiction to examine the legality of detainee detention in Guantanamo and elsewhere.

They did this in defiance of the not yet completely packed Supreme Court (another reason to reject Alito), whose authority they would annul.

This is all despite the well-known FACT that many scooped up into these hell holes of torture are not terrorists at all, some even having been sold for bounty. Senator Bingaman immediately responded with a proposed corrective amendment (S.AMDT.2517) to restore jurisdiction. Is our government telling us that there is no possible way any of those people can be convicted of a crime, by even an American jury, if they were to have a fair trial? We also know that our own military attorneys were fired for protesting because the tribunals already established were such miscarriages of justice.

Tell your Senators to SUPPORT Bingaman Amendment 2517!

You can call your members of Congress right now on one of these toll-free numbers, 888-818-6641 or 888-355-3588. There are operators on duty 24 hours a day. Just ask to be connected to your senators and they'll put you through.

If there is nobody in detention who can be convicted of anything without special kangaroo courts, then the real terrorists have indeed won, for we will then have abdicated all moral authority. Please contact your senators at once to tell them to support the Bingaman amendment. Won't you click a mouse one time to send your personal message now?
