    I haven't seen any major media pick this story up. Disappointing.

    Why can't ACLU or other like groups not file for restraining orders or whatever the legal term might be in every federal court in an attempt to halt these kind of abuses?

    Innocent people have been killed by security forces in this climate of fear. From Wikipedia:

    The true story didn't start to come out until yesterday evening. Give it time.

    There is plenty of mainstream coverage already out there, it just happens to be based on a very incomplete picture of what happened.

    Yep. They're not called the "Lame Stream" for nothing. The average quadraplegic could run rings around them.

    Take a reasonable amount of time, multiply it by three and add one to the product. Then take a deep breath, let it out slowly, and wait some more.

    UNLESS Drudge reports it. If it's on the Drudge report before 3, it will be on the Fox News this evening. Apparently newscasters have no shame.

    Has anyone here sent it to Drudge/know if someone has? I looked earlier and didn't see it on his page.

    Yep, but maybe each and every one of us should.

    I'll go do it now.

    The Atlantic, Gawker, and Reason have picked it up. I can't believe major media isn't going to at some point today. But then perhaps I shouldn't get my hopes up.

    Well, because our laws have been so rewritten and twisted, our rights so eviscerated by the Executive Branch and the courts, our Congress so cowardly, the ACLU so I-don't-know-what-the-(expletive deleted)-they're-doing . . . .

    It was just discussed. :) I have a suspicion it will be discussed more.

    Sigh.

    I think you're right.

    Was she obligated to answer any questions? I certainly know that I would have kept my mouth SHUT without an attorney.

    As did I, but Drudge marches to his own drummer.

    Thank you both for your service as well. I think it is very telling of the state of affairs that military personnel, once willing to risk their lives defending our land and Constitution, now feel this way. Things are going horribly wrong.

    I think we're all confused about this (which is exactly what our overlords want). I posted earlier in this thread info on our Miranda rights, or lack thereof in "terrorism" cases. Mike, Cartoon Peril, and others also chimed in. I think it's a very thorny situation.
