Republicans are Responsible for new Terrorist Rights

In a staggering 5 to 3 decision, the Liberal majority on the nation's U.S. Supreme Court conferred Geneva Convention rights to those who are not a party to the Convention. For review sake, the Washington Times encapsulates the entire case:

Justice John Paul Stevens, writing for the majority, said a pending military tribunal for Yemeni national Salim Ahmed Hamdan, chauffeur to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, could not proceed because its structure and procedures violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice and four Geneva Conventions signed in 1949.... Justice Scalia, writing the minority opinion, said Congress enacted the Detainee Treatment Act on Dec. 30 that "unambiguously provides" that no court, justice or judge has the jurisdiction to consider a petition on whether Guantanamo detainees were imprisoned lawfully and whether they should be released from custody.
Neither Osama Bin Laden the founder and titular head of Al Qaeda, Mullah Omar renamed the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, nor Abu Musab al-Zarqawi the late leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, ever agreed to the conditions and restrictions of the Geneva Conventions. Neither Al Qaeda nor the Taliban give a rip about the Geneva Conventions, yet the enemy of their enemy stated the following:

U.S. Senator Richard "Dick" Durbin - Democrat of Illinois "The United States Supreme Court handed down a decision reminding the Bush administration that no president is above the law. The court rejected the Bush administration's decision to turn its back on treaties and laws that have served America so well for generations."

U.S. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader - Democrat of California (San Francisco) “Today’s Supreme Court decision reaffirms the American ideal that all are entitled to the basic guarantees of our justice system. This is a triumph for the rule of law. “The rights of due process are among our most cherished liberties, and today’s decision is a rebuke of the Bush Administration’s detainee policies and a reminder of our responsibility to protect both the American people and our Constitutional rights. We cannot allow the values on which our country was founded to become a casualty in the war on terrorism.”

U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy - Democrat of Massachusetts "...a stunning repudiation of the Bush administration's lawless behavior at Guantanamo...As we approach the Fourth of July, it is entirely appropriate that the Supreme Court has reminded the president and Secretary Rumsfeld that there is no excuse for ignoring the rule of law, even when our country is at war." What needs to be recognized in this decision is that the Supreme Court's liberal majority decided to write a legal opinion based on their personal politics - not jurisprudence. In the decision they ignored statutes passed by the congress last year and a previous supreme court decision in 1942 on the same issue. Also, some of these Left-Wing Liberals are...Republican!! It is easy for me to pick apart the legal decision however, I want to focus on the real problem - Republicans longing to get along with the domestic enemy of America - the American Left-Wing Liberal.
Now let's just accept the reality that Left-Wing Liberals (elected, appointed, civil servants, advocates, and all of the others) will rejoice at the fact that this terrorist and his cohorts have gained a significant victory against our nation's war on terror. I revel in fighting Left-Wing Liberals on every issue. However I realize the fact that it is the Repubican Party who enabled this morass of legal problems because we look the other way as our moderates become paramours of Left-Wing Liberals.

Some time ago, I wrote a blog entitled 9 out of 9. I made the point that every current member of the United Stated Supreme Court is currently serving with the explicit blessing of the Republican Party. Conservative Republicans voted in favor of these Left-Wing Liberals, knowing fully what their backgrounds were. It should be no surprise that the Left-Wing Liberal majority on the U.S. Supreme Court would disregard laws and precedents (of that court) in favor of the declared enemy of the United States.

Remember it is this majority who cites foreign constitutions as authority in their opinions - thereby subjecting U.S. Citizens to the Supremacy of those foreign Constitutions. So why would we be so surprised that this same judicial majority is similarly motivated to confer U.S. Constitutional protections to non-citizen who are combatants in foreign countries. The actions of the Left-Wing Liberal majority of the U.S. Supreme Court resemble the new world order and one world government that Left-Wing Liberal conspiracy theorists criticize that President Bush is accommodating.

The nation is currently reaping the harvest of horrible decisions made by Republicans who do not see the destructive power accommodating Left-Wing Liberals.
