According to an article on The American Muslim‘s website, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) praises yesterday’s contentious Supreme Court decision as a “victory for objective justice.” CAIR’s statement follows:
Today’s Supreme Court decision is a victory for objective justice. Once again, the Bush administration’s weak assertion that its heavy-handed detention policy operates within the law has not found support in our nation’s highest court.
As with the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 was passed quickly without proper congressional debate. The repeated lack of appropriate legislative process and administrative double dealing has proven to be damaging to our nation.
The prison facility at Guantanamo Bay is a legal and public relations embarrassment for our country and should be promptly closed.
Never mind that only President Bush is attacked–as opposed to the legislators who actually voted and passed the laws that CAIR objects to–but since when did CAIR (CAIR!) become the arbiter of “objective justice”?
• CAIR’s founders are tied to Hamas –“CAIR consistently defends other militant Islamic terrorists too.”
• CAIR backs terrorist sympathizers.
Also, note to the author of this press release: calling a prison a “legal and public relations embarrassment” does not even suggest that it is illegal. And, if CAIR is not contending its legality, how’s President Bush’s “heavy-handed detention policy” operating outside the law?
