MK Lone Nut helps push torture bill?

Total Information Analysis | September 25 2006

Another Bush-regime police state bill in the Congress, another suspicious incident at the Capitol. This perp has MIND KONTROL written all over him -- running the streets despite a criminal record, a seizure immediately following his mission, and he's been held incommunicado ever since. Associated Press Sept. 19:

"A Silver Spring man accused of running through the U.S. Capitol building Monday with a loaded handgun will undergo days of psychiatric evaluation and treatment before his arraignment.

Carlos Greene, 20, should be considered a flight risk, federal prosecutors said, because he was on parole for assaulting a police officer and on probation in Maryland for unspecified charges.

At a court appearance yesterday, Magistrate Judge John Facciola ordered Greene held until a hearing Friday.

Greene ... led police on a car chase and nearly hit two pedestrians before crashing on the Capitol grounds Monday, officials said.

After a foot chase through the Capitol, Greene tried to grab a shotgun from a police officer before being subdued, authorities said.

Law-enforcement authorities yesterday described the security breach as the worst since two U.S. Capitol Police officers were fatally shot in 1998 by a man with a history of mental illness.
[...]
Congressional aides told reporters that the man appeared to suffer a seizure after his arrest and was taken by ambulance to Greater Southeast Community Hospital. [...]

In the past three years, according to court records, Greene has been convicted of disorderly conduct in Montgomery County and fleeing a police officer in the District.

He also was accused in June in the District of gun and traffic charges and is awaiting trial.

Congress got the message. First, the House...
From Roll Call via Raw Story Sept. 20:
"After a round of arm-twisting by top GOP leaders, the House Judiciary Committee reversed itself late Wednesday and endorsed the Bush administration's proposed ground rules for interrogation and trial of enemy combatants captured in the war on terrorism.
The committee earlier in the afternoon had rejected the bill by 17-20 and agreed by voice vote to report the measure (HR 6054) unfavorably. The legislation had been approved last week by the House Armed Services Committee.
[...]
Despite the last-minute victory for the White House, the Judiciary Committee tussle clearly signaled that some House Republicans share the concerns about Bush's approach expressed in the Senate by Armed Services Chairman John W. Warner, R-Va., and Republicans John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

. . . and then the Senate. From New York Times (09-22) 04:00 PDT:
"The Bush administration and congressional Republicans reached agreement Thursday on legislation governing the treatment and interrogation of terror suspects after weeks of debate that fractured Republicans heading into the midterm elections.
[...]
Members of Congress and administration officials announced the deal after emerging from a tense and intricate all-day meeting in Vice President Dick Cheney's office in a Senate building, saying they will try to push it through in the five days Congress is scheduled to meet before lawmakers leave to campaign. ...

"The agreement clears the way to do what the American people expect us to do: to capture terrorists, to detain terrorists, to question terrorists, and then to try them," Bush said in Orlando, Fla., where he was attending fundraisers for Republican candidates.
