    US to captive: "We're holding you because we can"

    This report, from the St. Petersburg Times highlights the lawless, arrogant approach of the rogue regime in Washington very well:

    The suit claims that Hammoudeh's continued incarceration in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement wing of the Manatee County Jail is unconstitutional because he has been acquitted in the Sami Al-Arian case and received no jail time in a separate tax fraud case, in which he agreed to be deported.

    But government attorneys argued in their written response Tuesday that the overriding reason Hammoudeh remains in jail is because ICE can legally keep him for six months, according to a U.S. Supreme Court decision.

    In the Zadvydas case, the Supreme Court said it was illegal to keep a deportee in jail for more than six months without justification.
