of course he is absolutely correct

Lincoln suspended Habeas Corpus during the civil war. The nation survived it. Research why there is a gold fringe on flags in courtrooms. Goes all the way back to Lincoln.

This is an academic issue, and not really in question

It is a truth which is counter to the left's assumptions, and when stated stokes the paranoid reaction of the left into hysterical rants about the abuse of power and how we should all be worried

I'm not worried. I am sure others are, but they fall into the hysterical category. Facts and history mean nothing to them.

We better worry a lot more about alqueda, N Korea and Iran.

keepin' it real

This is true however this is one of many decades or centuries old laws that needs to be re-written or clarified. Personaly I think we should turn those prisoners in gitmo over to Israel so that the prisoners "rights" can no longer be violated under our constitution.
Israel in turn will let us do what we want to with the prisoners.

No brainer.

Habius corpus is a what ?

A new RC Heli?
A finger ?
A "bum nut" ?
Or is Habius corpus a "right" to something ?

If it is a "right"
Then if the constitution states it cannot be removed, it is acknowleging that, a "right" canot be removed
In stating a right cannot be removed the constitution has acknowleged the "right"

The dilemma which the AG is attempting to create is whether HC is a right by Statute or by the Constitution.

If by Statute, then Congress can easily change it. If by the Constitution, then it becomes much more difficult to modify.

This is not a Left or Right issue. Lincoln abolished HC and Congress reinstated it two years later. The Constitution refers to taking HC away in the event of a rebellion or an invasion. The AG is implying that unless the Constitution specifically grants the right, then it may not exist, never mind that it says such right can only be taken away in the event of a rebellion of invasion. As Arlen Specter said to the AG, ".....you may betreading on your interdiction and violating common sense, Mr. Attorney General."

Senator Specter isn't exaclty a bleeding heart liberal.
