Lindsay Graham Offers Gulag Amendment

U.S. Senator Graham wants to add an amendment to the Senate appropriations bill which would deny the courts jurisdiction over people designated by the President as enemy combatants, giving a legislative stamp of approval to an American gulag system. Maybe the Senate pro-torture caucus, of which Colorado's Wayne Allard is a member, will reconstitute itself as the Senate pro-injustice caucus.

If we had true gulags, wouldn't that be a good thing, because then the prisoners would be producing goods for our economy? (-;

Sorry, not funny.

I'm just trying to point out the inaccuracy of the term "gulag" in this usage.
