In a surprising move yesterday, Christopher Dodd (D-CT) announced that he would introduce legislation to guarantee US Constitutional Rights to enemy combatants, and would seek to repeal portions of the recently enacted Military Commissions Act.
source: "It's clear the people who perpetrated these horrendous crimes against our country and our people have no moral compass and deserve to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. But in taking away their legal rights, the rights first codified in our country's Constitution, we're taking away our own moral compass, as well."
If Dodd believes that last week's election was a mandate for this radical approach to dealing with enemy combatants, then the next two years may provide entertainment from DC not seen in a long time.

He is a treasonous son of a bitch!!!
We have had since day one a two front insurgency. Sadly the party of deception has victimized the masses that they are numbed with pain and are blind and dumb to the reality of this world.
Do it, Dodd. Do it.
Of course, the MSM will give them a pass. God, they're a disgusting cabal.
If this even makes it to the veto pen, we have great reason to worry about the future. I don't think it could possibly make it past the Senate.
Dodd is a nutcase.
I think there are probably quite a few DemocRATS who don't want to be forced to vote for this bill.
Plays perfectly in Peoria: I can't wait to see the House vote.
this is a congress killer......Do it Dodd and you will be eaten by your own
Good this will be a good start to drawing a distinction between the Rats and Pubbies.
He'S one of the JARS - Just Another Rat Scumbag.
Perfect storm for the good guys. Just like that House Resolution last year to just pull out of Iraq.
Show yourselves. Come out and play. I think I might just call Chris' office on Monday.
Wonder what's wrong with the servers?
Democrats: In love with terrorists since before 9-11.
The good news is that most people will get it in '08 that the RATs cannot handle national security ... if the country is still here.
Sounds like a lawyer employment act to me.
Dodd never met a terrorist he didn't secretly want to fellate.
I'm hoping the Dems do alot more of this!!! The more they pull this type of garbage, the more the American public sees who they really are. They won this past election partly because they ran a bunch of folks as moderate to conservative Dems. Gotta do something to bring out their true colors.
Bingo... these animals barely satisfy the definition of Homo sapien, and that only by virtue of their DNA.
But 'people'? 'Human'? They are neither.
