Justice Scalia as Mouthpiece for GOP


(Flying the true colors of his flag: partisanship and lies)

Important information the next time someone tries to argue against Habeas Corpus and actual Justice in relation to Guantanamo Bay:

A new report from the Seton Hall University School of Law explodes the myth that some 30 detainees released from Guantanamo Bay prison have “returned to the battlefield” against American forces.

[From Think Progress » Report: Scalia’s Claim That Released Gitmo Prisoners Have Killed Americans Is An ‘Urban Legend’ ]

In fact, despite the fact that this myth is being repeated over and over again (because that’s how the truth gets made, don’t ya know: when 2 lies love each other very much, they . . .):

According to the Department of Defense’s published and unpublished data and reports, not a single released Guantánamo detainee has ever attacked any Americans.

So Justice Scalia may want to think about presenting the facts in his next opinion instead of parroting some unsubstantiated urban legend lie that he was fed by GOP Senators in their continued (and largely unchecked) pursuit of fascist power.
