"The 2006 Military Commissions Act authorized torture and sweeping unconstitutional powers to detain, interrogate, and prosecute alleged suspects and collaborators (including US citizens), hold them (without evidence) indefinitely in military prisons, and deny them habeas and other constitutional protections.

Imagine new likely power abuses, including claiming OWS protesters threaten America. Imagine human and civil rights workers, as well as anti-war activists targeted. Imagine anyone challenging wealth and power interests at risk. Imagine an America more than ever not fit to live in, and nowhere to hide."
