“war” news 3

“In War, It’s Power to the President” (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A55391-2001Nov19.html), a 11/20/01 article by Dana Milbank from the Washington Post details how the power hungry administration is getting rid of “democracy”.

“Moving toward a police state (or have we already arrived?)” (http://www.counterpunch.org/ratner5.html) , a column by Mike Ratner at counterpunch.org explains how the administration has curtailed and / or taken away our civil liberties.

Although I find their impact questionable, statements opposing the administration’s moves have been made by members of congress have been made. Read Rep. John Coyer’s statement at http://www.house.gov/conyers/pr111601.htm and Sen. Patrick Leahy’s statement at http://leahy.senate.gov/press/200111/111401.html .
