And the hits just keep on comin' - another Friday night news dump

i'm beginning to sound like a broken record, but anyone who's been paying the slightest bit of attention won't find this to be the least bit surprising...
Bush Administration Debated Using Military in Terrorism Arrests

[in the U.S.]

Top Bush administration officials in 2002 debated testing the
Constitution by sending American troops into the suburbs of
Buffalo to arrest a group of men suspected of plotting with
Al Qaeda, according to former administration officials.

Some of the advisers to President George W. Bush, including
Vice President Dick Cheney, argued that a president had the
power to use the military on domestic soil to sweep up the
terrorism suspects, who came to be known as the Lackawanna
Six, and declare them enemy combatants. Mr. Bush ultimately
decided against the proposal to use military force.
