The Chronicle just mentioned that Alberto Gonzales doesn't think the Constitution guarantees the right of habeas corpus (i.e. the right to have a court hear you out if the government throws you in jail).

(Note, the Constitution says "The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it." Presumably, if it can be suspended, it must already exist, no?)


Remember when he was discussed as a candidate for the Supreme Court? Not something he has to worry about anymore!
