From blog correspondent Lee Penn
Bush’s government trashes habeas corpus
by Jacob Hornberger
Lee Penn: Bush is following the precedents set by Lincoln and Sherman.

FBI acts on tip; quizzes journalist for reading ‘suspicious material’ in public
by Marc Schultz
Lee Penn: Heil ______ (name your favorite government official).

Lee: Any Republicans who see this, and assume that nothing will happen to them
(because they would NEVER 'look suspicious') should think again. All those
spiffy new powers that the government is now using will still be in place the
next time we elect a liberal president. Imagine Hillary Clinton wielding the
powers in 2005 that Bush and Ashcroft wield now. Be afraid; be very afraid.
And note well that the FBI was acting on a tip from a 'neighbor' - just like the
good old days of the Gestapo, the Stasi, and the KGB.
