    Take politics out of this for a second... does the logic make sense to anyone? It sounds like doublespeak.

    If the constitution says a right can't be taken away except under certain conditions, isn't that the same thing as granting that right?

    Not according to neo-cons. They have a different version of the constitution they keep to themselves. Doublespeak accurately describes it.

    I don't think even a super-strict constructionist like Antonin Scalia (though he doesn't call himself that) would interpert it the way the admin. does.

    Remember when GWB allegedly said, "The Constitution is just a goddamned piece of paper." Guess all of the protections are the same.

    GOnzales would be fired by a private law firm if he presented such a moronic line of logic, not to mention on the national stage.
    How many weak links does this administration have? This has to be the worst group of arrogant boobs since the Nixon Administration...maybe ever.
