Enemy Combatant Charge for Video Upload

And the bar of accusation lowers just a little bit more ...

Feds Charge  Man As Enemy Combatant Supporting Terrorism For Uploading YouTube Video, Subjecting Him To Permanent Imprisonment, Torture, And Lethal Beatings Without A Trial

Take freedom of speech and other personal liberties — including protections against cruel and unusual punishment, right to face your accuser, and right to trial by jury — and throw them right out the window. All for the crime of uploading a YouTube.

...

The Department of Justice of the great United States of America has charged a Jubair Ahmad, a 24 year old Woodbridge, Virginia man, of providing support for terrorism because he allegedly uploaded a propaganda video to YouTube. The accusation alone instantly classifies the man as an ‘enemy combatant’  and ‘clear and present danger’. Such persons who are a ‘threat to national security’ have absolutely no rights. To make matters worse, businesses and nations aren’t allowed to do business with such so-called ‘terrorists’ or they will be declared a terrorist themselves. That means a lawyer who takes up his case can be charge with providing support for terrorism. That is  if the United States government  even decides to honor habeas corpus and give the man a trial in the first place. Our beloved supreme court has ruled that ‘enemy combatants’ can be abducted, tortured, assassinated, and even detained for ever without a trial because the constitution does not apply to them. Even worse, the lucky few who are released after being declared innocent have no right to legal recourse because revealing the details of their detention and torture is also a threat to national security.

 

Soon enough, someone will be 'disappeared' for making a video consisting of nothing more than clips of some head of state contradicting themselves from one clip to another. But, you won't hear about the petty details -- they'll just be another 'enemy' the state has pro-tec-ted you from. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

"because the constitution does not apply to them"
Illegal entry into the united states could fall under that statement. But it is all in who they choose to prosecute.

The Constitution has nothing to do with it. This is a clear violation of human rights. By protecting the rights of everyone, we protect our own rights. We may be next.
