Distorting the Military Commissions Act
(UPDATE: The first paragraph of this post has been modified to reflect RI Future’s timely correction of their original post.)
Over at RI Future,
they are attempting to propagate the progressive fever-swamp fantasy they repeated the erroneous assertion (since corrected) that the Military Commissions Act affects the right of American citizens to petition for a writ of Habeas Corpus. As we’ve explained here and here in detail, it’s not true. The MCA applies only to aliens, not citizens.
And while we’re on the subject, is there anybody on the progressive left willing to join the long-term campaign to help bring about the right of citizens in North Korea or Iran to petition their own governments for Habeas Corpus, or do the progs regard those issues as “none of our business”?
