Supreme's Support Policy of indefinite detention until regime change!

The Supreme Court today vacated a lower court's decision that said the president has the right to indefinitely detain a legal resident of the country without charging him with a crime.

The court did not rule on the merits of the decision, but it vacated the ruling as moot after the Obama administration indicted suspected al-Qaeda agent Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri and said it would move him from a Navy brig to the federal court system.

The Supreme Court had been scheduled to hear Marri's case -- he has been imprisoned for nearly six years -- next month.

Last summer, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit in Richmond agreed with the Bush administration that in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Congress gave the president the power to indefinitely hold terrorism suspects under military guard, even if they were in the country legally.

Last week, the Justice Department decided to move Marri to federal courts.

[ cf Court Says President Cannot Indefinitely Detain Legal U.S. Residents ]
It is not clear from this ruling IF the Supreme's favor the War President or the one mistakenly elected by the civilians. Nor whether this will remain state policy if the civilian president finds a need to randomly detain enemies of the state whom they will be able to detain as not really americans, because, well, you and I both know that many UnAmericans pretend taht they have american citizenship simply because they were born in america, even if they have not been able to be vetted as True Americans...

So for the moment it appears that one can be detained until regime change...

So remember boys and non-persons, you are only as american as your most recent release from detention allows you to assert your total loyalty to the War President and full support against our enemies in EurEastAsia.

Can I have another Victory Gin Please...
