Habeas corpus

A few days ago I saw an article at That the Attorney General of the USA was denying that habeas corpus was essential. This bothered me since the traditional understanding of historians is the right to habeus corpus is one of the reasons we fought the Revolutionary War. I'm surprised their hasn't been more of an outcry. If we don't keep the freedoms for which we fought, then why are we fighting now? Oil? Pride? or some other reason?
