- WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's Justice Department sided with the former Bush administration on Friday, saying detainees in Afghanistan have no constitutional rights.
In a two-sentence court filing, department lawyers said the Obama administration agreed that detainees at Bagram Air Base cannot use U.S. courts to challenge their detentions. The filing shocked human rights attorneys.
So, why do detainees held on a U.S. controlled Air base in Afghanistan have no Constitutional rights, while detainees held at Gitmo do?
Are you Obama supporters thinking that just maybe you were sold a bill of goods?
