Don't believe me yet....

Wow, who would have thought that the Bush administration could have considered tearing up the Constitution?  It's almost as if they tried to keep things secret. 

Latest: "In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the Justice Department secretly gave the green light for the U.S. military to attack apartment buildings and office complexes inside the United States, deploy high-tech surveillance against U.S. citizens and potentially suspend First Amendment freedom-of-the-press rights in order to combat the terror threat, according to a memo released Monday."

Here's the memo, in case you think this is a case of the press over-playing the story.

Just to be clear, the chief law enforcement officer of the United States of America, the Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, issued a memo suggesting that the President has the authority to revoke the first amendment to the Constitution at his own discretion.  Not to mention that the President had the authority to use the military to attack domestic locations.  It took the Administration seven years to reject the memo.

So far no invoices for jackboots or brown shirts.  I'll keep you posted.
