 Our Soviet Attorney General by Thomas Eddlem
Gonzales is saying that unless the Constitution explicitly grants all citizens a right, these rights can be taken away by the president — or perhaps even that these rights never existed in the first place.
The same exact thing could be said of most rights protected by the Constitution: the right to freedom of the press, assembly, religion, the security against unreasonable search and seizure, the guarantee of a jury trial, and so on.
Moreover, agents of the Soviet state bear less moral culpability because they feared for their own lives and safety if they didn’t violate the rights of citizens.

The KGB was directed by a chairman--who was formally appointed by the Supreme Soviet but actually was selected by the Politburo-- one or two first deputy chairmen, and several (usually four to six) deputy chairmen.

 Azerbaijan - The Constitution   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The preparation of a new constitution to replace the 1978 document (which had been based on the 1977 Soviet constitution) began in 1992, but adoption has been repeatedly delayed by civil and political turmoil.
Pending the adoption of a new constitution, the fundamental document in the early 1990s was the October 18, 1991, Act of Independence, which government authorities have described as the basis for a new constitution.
Meanwhile, the provisions of the 1978 constitution are valid if they do not violate or contradict the Act of Independence.

 Washington on the Tigris
The latest evidence of the advancement of Iraqi freedom is the interim Iraqi constitution, ratified on March 8, and the subject of much crowing among the war cheerleaders of the official Right.
Conveniently, this paragraph neglects to mention that the foreign government imposing this constitution on the people of Iraq wholeheartedly supported “the previous tyrannical regime” for years and is employing “violence and coercion” in several forms to install this government in Iraq.
The Iraqi constitution, in Article 17, states precisely the opposite: “It shall not be permitted to possess, bear, buy, or sell arms except on licensure issued in accordance with the law.” Thus, the Iraqi government is free to disarm the entire citizenry.
