Be Back on Monday....by Kyle Michaelis
Until then, do your best to contain that sinking feeling in your stomach when you read about the Senate's vote to strip "detainees" of the right to appeal their detention to the courts. The vote on the Specter Amendment is particularly telling and - in Nebraska's case - particularly damning. The Benator at least supported provisions increasing Congressional oversight and putting a sunset clause on the formation of military tribunals, but our other supposedly independent Senator helped defeat both measures with his friends in the Republican majority.
A sad day for America. An embarrassing day for Nebraska. Feel free to speak your mind.
