Bush Privacy Assault Frightening

Bush's Mysterious New Programs measure up as marshall law by civil liberties yardsticks. This linked story by Nat Parry covers bizarre new detention centers which appear to be intended to house large numbers of "enemy combatants" or domestic terrorists. Contracts awarded to Halliburton affiliate Kellog, Brown & Root, according to a CBS MarketWatch story from January 24 titled "KBR Awarded Homeland Security Contract Worth Up To $385 Million".

Scary stuff that is not discussed openly because it is "Homeland Security" related. The story looks at these odd contracts in depth, along with statements made by Bush supporters, confidants and administration officials which suggest we may see a return to a new type of McCarthyism. Americans can be arrested, detained and held without legal representation for indeterminate periods without reason or recourse. Scary, scary stuff this.
