    But even within this history, we have not before codified the poisoning of Habeas Corpus, that wellspring of protection from which all essential liberties flow.

    You, sir, have now befouled that spring.

    You, sir, have now given us chaos and called it order.

    You, sir, have now imposed subjugation and called it freedom.

    For the most vital… the most urgent… the most inescapable of reasons.

    And — again, Mr. Bush — all of them, wrong.

    Amazing. Way to go, Keith.

    I did myself a favor and watched it. This guy is really dramatic yet he made some good points.

    We should be dramatic. We should be shocked and angry. Yet we go on being “consumers” and slowly watching our nation bleed to death.
