The National Defense Authorization Act gave the President the discretion of deciding that if Americans collaborate with terrorists, they can be indefinitely detained without the right of habeas corpus. Senator John McCain consorted with al-Qaida allies during his trip to Syria over the weekend. Why isn’t he on his way to Guantanamo Bay?
It’s always amusing to watch as the elected class feigns outrage over the results of its own actions.
