King George?

On the new Bush administration proposed response to Hamdan:
Crooks and Liars: White House proposes 'solution' to Hamdan case: "The Navy's top uniformed lawyer from 1997 to 2000 said the rules would evidently allow the government to tell a prisoner: 'We know you're guilty. We can't tell you why, but there's a guy, we can't tell you who, who told us something. We can't tell you what, but you're guilty.'"

I remember my naive days when I believed in our democracy. I will say this. This administration has turned me into an ABR voter. That means, I would vote for just about anything before I would vote for the party that gave us Bush and then told us it was ice cream.

What is described in that statement is called a Bill of Attainder. Expressly prohibited in the Constitution. Not the Bill of Right -- In the Constitution itself along with ex post facto laws.
