Hijacking the Constitution and the Bill of Rights

We begin with a fundamental principle, one that even the Post implicitly acknowledges: Terrorism is, in fact, a federal criminal offense. Let me repeat that: Terrorism is a crime under U.S. law.

Thus, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that suspected terrorists have always been subject to the rules, guarantees, and protections that relate to the federal criminal-justice system. Grand-jury indictments, jury trials in federal court, criminal-defense attorneys, the presumption of innocence, the exclusion of incompetent and irrelevant evidence, the right to confront and cross-examine adverse witnesses, the right to remain silent, the right to call favorable witnesses, and so forth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This country is rapidly morphing into a country governed by the rule of men, and not the rule of law, which is a truly terrifying process to watch.

There are several very nasty pieces of legislation, floating in various congressional committees right now which will, if passed, absolutely destroy presumption of innocence and legal due process in this country.
