Breaking: Senate rejects habeas legislation.

In a 56-43 vote, the Senate today “narrowly rejected” legislation that would have restored habeas corpus rights to military detainees and given them “the right to protest their detention in federal court.” The roll call fell four votes short of the 60 needed to cut off debate.

UPDATE: Full roll call vote HERE.

We are soooooo lucky to have Tom Carper. I real live hero – who stands up for the flag against the Constitution EVERY time.

See the comments: Carper “voted Yea with the Defeatocrats to close debate so the pro-al Quaeda bill could go to a vote.”   Why does Carper hate America?
