What's missing?

The windbag Robert Byrd said:

The President claims a boundless authority through the resolution that authorized the war on those who perpetrated the September 11th attacks. But that resolution does not give the President unchecked power to spy on our own people. That resolution does not give the Administration the power to create covert prisons for secret prisoners. That resolution does not authorize the torture of prisoners to extract information from them. That resolution does not authorize running black-hole secret prisons in foreign countries to get around U.S. law. That resolution does not give the President the powers reserved only for kings and potentates.

What's missing? The newspaper shutdowns. Add newspaper shutdowns and what would we call it? Does anyone doubt that would come about if the Bushists got half a chance?

UPDATE: I forgot the arrests of opposition politicians.
