I couldn't believe my eyes when I read this today: Bush just issued an executive order that finally will remove the last obstacle and allow trials against 'illegal combatants' where hearsay and testifies enforced under torture can be rated as evidence. Read it again, that's technically nothing other than
inquisition. Especially because those trials are allowed to impose the death penalty. Unbelievable. Constitutional state, good bye. Where are our European politicans? Why aren't they saying anything? Where are the american people? Or at least the media?
Strangely, I also only found only non-english speaking media reporting about this in detail (for example Spiegel
) while english media only report about the executive order without its consequences, like here
