Wow! This is Breathtaking-Bush Thought He Could Do Terrorist Raids Using Military IN THE UNITED STATES

I feel sick. Yoo even said that the Act against Posse Comitatus didn't present any obstacle.

The opinion authorizing the military to operate on domestic territory was dated Oct. 23, 2001, and written by Yoo, at the time a deputy assistant attorney general, and Robert Delahunty, a special counsel. It was directed to Alberto Gonzales, then the White House counsel who had asked whether Bush could use the military to combat terrorist activities inside the United States.

"The law has recognized that force (including deadly force) may be legitimately used in self-defense," Yoo wrote to Gonzales. Any objections based on the Fourth Amendment's prohibition against unreasonable searches would vanish, he said, because any privacy offense that comes with such a search would be less than any injury from deadly force.

So much for any kind of respect for the Constitution.

Yoo and Delahunty also said in the Oct. 23 memorandum that, "First Amendment speech and press rights may also be subordinated to the overriding need to wage war successfully." They added that, "The current campaign against terrorism may require even broader exercises of federal power domestically."

Sick.

You can't wage 'war' against terrorism because you don't know who the enemy is. That's why they call it terrorism.

I'm more afraid of the erosion of our constitution than I am of any terrorist.
