http://www.cnn.com/2003/LAW/07/14/moussaoui/index.html I always thought that we had "three" branches of government that provided a "checks and balances" system. However, it appears now that the judicial system only applies to the people, not the government. So if this goes up to the Supreme Court and the Justice Dept. still says, "Screw off," then what will happen then? The federal judge has the right to drop the case. I'm sure all hell would break lose, especially in NYC. Of course, in a worse case scenerio, the military takes orders from the executive branch and not the judicial branch, so that would mean the judicial system couldn't really enforce anything. What are they going to do -- hold the U.S. government in contempt of court?
