habeas corpus denied by Bush Administration

If you think the justices of SCOTUS have liberal interpretation of US Constitution, read what U.S. Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales is quoted with:
“There is no expressed grant of habeas in the Constitution; there’s a prohibition against taking it away,” Gonzales said.
[So, a right to fair trial is not in the Constitution at all?] and
Gonzales continued, “The Constitution doesn’t say every individual in the United States or citizen is hereby granted or assured the right of habeas corpus. It doesn’t say that. It simply says the right shall not be suspended” except in cases of rebellion or invasion.”
[So, only explicit permission in the Constitution is a guaranteed right. Anything else is up to interpretation.]

The ten commandment analysis is poking fun of this new method [I personally don't think it's all that accurate but kind of funny].

This trend by the current administration is negative: looking at our phone conversation and phone records, our email (eschelon), snail mail, holding people at Gitmo without cause, and allowing the torturing of prisoners. What's next? Round up the terror-bent racial group(s)?
