    Report says US already spent $385m on prison camps for "disloyal Americans"

    A news report that is curculating says that the Bush Administration is exploring the idea of establishing prison camps for persons who do not have loyalties to the United States.

    AlterNet says that they've already given Haliburton a $385 million contract to build a facility for it. Here's a link to a financial news report that tells about the contract:

    My question who gets to say who is loyal? Kind of sounds a little bit like the old Soviet Union. You say the wrong thing to the wrong person and off to the gulag you go.

    If they start trying to do that sort of thing there's likely going to be civil unrest.

(Just exactly who would that be - persons who don't agree with Bush?)

    "The administration has not only the right, but the duty, in my opinion, to pursue Fifth Column movements," Graham, R-S.C., told Gonzales during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Feb. 6.

    "I stand by this president's ability, inherent to being commander in chief, to find out about Fifth Column movements, and I don't think you need a warrant to do that," Graham added, volunteering to work with the administration to draft guidelines for how best to neutralize this alleged threat....(continued)

    and

    Detention centers
    Plus, there was that curious development in January when the Army Corps of Engineers awarded Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root $385 million contract to construct detention centers somewhere in the United States, to deal with "an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs," KBR said.
