Aaron Dykes/ Jones Report | November 2, 2006

During his visit to the Texas Book Festival, author, historian and political commentator (Gore Vidal) spoke with Alex Jones about the current state of the nation under the Bush Administration and what to expect in the near future.

Vidal discusses the importance of due process of law, "the very basis of this country." He contends that the eradication of the Bill of Rights under the 2006 Military Commissions Act has led to a 'Bill of Wrongs.'

"These are powers that have never been even thought of before by earlier Attorney Generals and Presidents and it's very scary that it all passes by so simply. Everybody yawns, 'Well, we've got to move on, you know.' Well, we've moved on into hell-- that is what has happened to the Republic of the United States," said Vidal.
