[Rep. Ron]  Paul [of TX] confirms rumors circulating in Washington that
this sweeping new law, with serious implications for each and every
American, was not made available to members of Congress for review before
the vote. "It's my understanding the bill wasn't printed before the vote
at least I couldn't get it. They played all kinds of games, kept the House
in session all night, and it was a very complicated bill. Maybe a handful
of staffers actually read it, but the bill definitely was not available to
members before the vote."

The President of the United States, having "determined that an
extraordinary emergency exists" has signed an executive order which allows
for secret trials, by military tribunals, of captured terrorists.  The
trials could be held in the US or abroad, and there is to be no judicial
review of the convictions or sentences.  The order was signed by President
Bush in his capacity as the Commander in Chief.
