"What the American People are witnessing now with this new legislation is the further development of an American Police State into a Military Dictatorship, a process that was started by the so-called USA Patriot Act in 2001," says Professor Francis Boyle, the constitutional law authority at the University of Illinois, Champaign.

"If it is enacted into law, America will lose all pretense of having our Military subjected to the control of democratically elected civilian leaders as originally envisioned and required by the Constitution. Our experiment in 1776 will have failed," adds Boyle, author of "Tackling America's Toughest Questions"(Clarity Press.)
