Bush Claims 4th Amendment Immunity
4/4/2008: Hey, guess what boys and girls?! The Bush administration accidentally allowed a rather eye-opening memo get declassified and released to the press! Grab some popcorn and a chair and get comfie!
Titled, "Memorandum for William J. Haynes II, General Counsel of the Department of Defense Re: Military Interrogation of Alien Unlawful Combatants Held Outside the United States" and dated 3/14/2003, Alberto Gonzales' DOJ asserted:
WOW! Alberto Gonzales, of the Department of Justice of the United States of America, decided all on his own that the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution didn't apply to the military! He felt that the Bill of Rights had some kind of small print that outlined exclusions for the Commander-in-Chief and everyone that works under him. That's AMAZING!
So they're saying that the Fourth Amendment, which expressly forces government entities to obtain warrants before searching your home, property, or private communications, doesn't actually apply to the... wait for it... GOVERNMENT!
This is one of those moments when you have to wonder if there aren't people in our own government that actually hate America and its freedoms and have conspired, at the very highest levels, in their hatred or perhaps just their arrogance, to take away those freedoms. It's scary beyond belief to me that the American people actually re-elected these people to office. Amazing.
