What does everyone think about Scott Horton (Int'l Human Rights Atty/Harpers Magazine) comments regarding the released John Yoo Justice Dept Memos?
That in essence Habeas Corpus was suspended for everyone during this period?
If you have no idea what I'm talking about; please either google the memos or watch this 6 min interview with Scott Horton the other night on Keith Obermann and hear the comments directly from him.

Luckily I heard he never used this authority and no americans were took, held, etc.
I'd have to do some more digging to see if there are more cases; but I did hear of at least one Canadian citizen that was held for an indefinite period of time with no access to legal counsel or the court system and then just released...no we're sorry we messed up or anything just ok you can leave now...
