Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Torture Victim

October 9, 2007

I hope all the Democrats who voted to confirm John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court are satisfied. Becasue of their move toward poitical expediency they have effectively rendered the Supreme Court of the land an unwieldly institution. 

Today it refused, without comment, to take on a case alleging kidnapping and torture by one of our government sanctioned security agencies.  According to the New York Times, a German citizen, Khaled el-Masri, has been refused consideration by the Roberts led Supreme Court.  Mr. Masri’s Germany attorney had this to say:

“We are very disappointed,” Mr. Gnijdic said in an interview with The Associated Press. “It will shatter all trust in the American justice system.”

Read the entire story here:

Welcome to the African-American’s reality Mr. Gnijdic.  This is the kind of treatment we receive on a regular basis.  But it doesn’t usually get to the Supreme Court level, we just get denied at the "1st Court of Appeals." (Had to get that in)

I hope you understand the importance of a President now America.  It’s the President of the moment who chooses who to nominate for the highest court of the land.  Bush is the President so we get Alito and Roberts, and the balance of justice slides. This countries credability could not get any lower, but instead of at least offering a reason why they would not hear the case – the court stood silent.  Not even an "I’m sorry, but Uncle Bush won’t let us play with you."  Just stone silence. That’s like getting slapped in the face.  It’s essentially saying, you aren’t even worthy of our breath.

Well we’ve got these guys for L-I-F-E Senate Democrats.  Hang your heads in shame.
