Alberto "Torture Memos" Gonzales is welcomed at UF
What you don't see in that video is the demonstrators who actually made it up onto the stage dressed as orange-clad, hooded Guantanamo detainees. They were arrested and charged with disrupting a public event. Seems like a charge well worth the experience, to me.
Why in God's name would the University of Florida pay $40,000 for a speech by one of the most infamous, vilified characters in recent American history? I could see a right wing think tank doing that, but a public university? The man doesn't even believe habeas corpus to be a Constitutional right! Remember this?
Read: Article One, Section Nine, which states ...
- "The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it."
No sleep for the wicked.
