How we lost our Fifth Amendment rights

The Fifth Amendment of the Constitution says that no person “shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.”


But when Congress passed the Military Commissions Act last summer, it gave the Bush Administration the right to detain anyone labeled an “unlawful enemy combatant” – without charge or trial – for as long as it pleases.

Such practices have already been used against American citizens – not on some faraway battlefield, but right here on our own soil.
