You left out:

Strictly prohibited to the US government by the 8th amendment. Not just against US citizens, not just on US soil, it is strictly prohibited. There are no exceptions in the US constitution.

Only, as Mr. Dewley said, the courts follows the election returns.

So now it's condoned by the courts if used on potential terrorists, even if they haven't done anything. In spite of the constitution.

The once vaunted 'government of laws, not men,' is now a government of thugs, not laws.
