Do the Secret Bush Memos Amount to Treason? Top Constitutional Scholar Says Yes

In early March, more shocking details emerged about George W. Bush legal counsel John Yoo's memos outlining the destruction of the republic.

The memos lay the legal groundwork for the president to send the military to wage war against U.S. citizens; take them from their homes to Navy brigs without trial and keep them forever; close down the First Amendment; and invade whatever country he chooses without regard to any treaty or objection by Congress.

The memos are a confession. The memos could not be clearer: This was the legal groundwork of an attempted coup. I expected massive front page headlines from the revelation that these memos exited. Almost nothing. I was shocked.

This article is by Naomi Wolf who fears her country is being hijacked by establishment elites.

The later portions of the article deal with the legal opinion of a top Law academic who agrees that the Yoo memos point to acts of Treason against the Constitution of the United States.
