As if you had any doubt that the Bush administration hates the Constitution

The attack on Habeus Corpus begins:

Moving quickly to implement the bill signed by President Bush this week that authorizes military trials of enemy combatants, the administration has formally notified the U.S. District Court here that it no longer has jurisdiction to consider hundreds of habeas corpus petitions filed by inmates at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.

A sad but knowing hat tip to Born at the Crest of the Empire.
