Keith Olbermann is the bomb

Standard

From Olbermann’s editorial, “We have handed a blank check drawn against our freedom to a man who has said it is unacceptable to compare anything this country has ever done to anything the terrorists have ever done.

We have handed a blank check drawn against our freedom to a man who has insisted again that “the United States does not torture. It’s against our laws and it’s against our values” and who has said it with a straight face while the pictures from Abu Ghraib Prison and the stories of Waterboarding figuratively fade in and out, around him.

We have handed a blank check drawn against our freedom to a man who may now, if he so decides, declare not merely any non-American citizens “unlawful enemy combatants” and ship them somewhere—anywhere —  but may now, if he so decides, declare you an “unlawful enemy combatant” and ship you somewhere – anywhere.”

“…And if you somehow think habeas corpus has not been suspended for American citizens but only for everybody else, ask yourself this: If you are pulled off the street tomorrow, and they call you an alien or an undocumented immigrant or an “unlawful enemy combatant”—exactly how are you going to convince them to give you a court hearing to prove you are not? Do you think this attorney general is going to help you?”

Keith Olbermann is the Bomb, for real though.

  1. Vivian,

    Thanks hon, I appreciate your every utterance. I am just following in your footsteps and trying to do go work on my blog as you do. I never realized how much work it truly is and that one should’nt say the first thing that pops into you head. Being thoughtful like you is exhausting.

    out of all the tv moderators, i really respect keith oberman. He is fair to all candidates. he tells it like it is. unlike all the other tv moderators, he doesn’t beat up on sen. obama and he doesn’t show prejudice or racist views. I applaud anyone no matter who they supporting who can be fair and objective. keep it up oberman, because of him i only watch msnbc, i never watch the other channels especially, fox news, who i find to have the most racist views on the news stations.
