What is happening to the constitution

I was rather upset to find out last Friday that congress passed a measure which (if I am reading it correctly) interpreted literally allows US citizens to be classified as enemy combatants by a military tribunal and once classified as such are subject to torture and have no right to habeas corpus. I couldn’t believe that this would even make sense to a majority of Representatives and Senators. Well, last night Keith Olbermann gave a pretty damning Special Comment on his MSNBC show about the Bush presidency. Have a listen.
