A nation’s death throes

Keith Olbermann is here to explain why habeas corpus matters, and how central it is to all rights of all citizens. Its abolishment sounds the death knell for our republic, so it’s remarkable that so few seem to give a damn.

Included is a clip of Senator Patrick Leahy:
Leahy: “The bill before the Senate would not merely suspend the great writ, the great writ of habeas corpus, it would eliminate it permanently.”
And then it was passed by the Senate.
