Wizard of Oz sort of stuff...shut the damn curtain, they'll see me!

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department on Monday released a long-secret legal document from 2001 in which the Bush administration claimed the military could search and seize terror suspects in the United States without warrants.

The legal memo was written about a month after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. It says constitutional protections against unlawful search and seizure would not apply to terror suspects in the U.S., as long as the president or another high official authorized the action.

Even after the Bush administration rescinded that legal analysis, the Justice Department refused to release its contents, prompting a standoff with congressional Democrats.

The memo was one of nine released Monday by the Obama administration.
In other words...."Yeah...yeah...I'm screwing up the economy...BUT CHECK OUT THESE MEMOS...HOLY CRAP...DID YOU READ THEM???!!!???

Bush rescinded them, folks. There is absolutely no reason what-so-ever to release them other than to distract away from what a disaster he is causing to our wallets.
