Still no Habeas Corpus rights for detainees (and non citizens)

Today our senate considered a bill that would restore habeas corpus rights to non-citizens, including the guantanamo detainees. Six Republicans -- Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe, Chuck Hagel, Richard Lugar, John Sununu and Gordon Smith -- joined every Democrat in voting for cloture on the habeas corpus provision. Joseph Lieberman voted "no" as did all of the other republicans.
If your senator was one of the "NO" votes give him or her hell.... and let them know you will be working to vote them out in their next election.
