There is precedent on how to deal the illegal combatants/ terrorists/ war criminals:<quoted text>
Yeah, but Toucan Tango, that's the point. We don't know if these detainees were picked up because they are suspected terrorists or if they were just picked up. There is no code of law governing their imprisonment. Bush & Co. has held them with no further justification as to why.
That's not America. In America, you have every right to a fair and speedy trial and you have every right to face your accuser. The Constitution doesn't guarantee justice for only American citizens, it guarantees justice for everyone within the American judicial system.
These detainees have been held with no trial and no way of appealing their imprisonment. How would you like you or any of your family members to be locked up indefinitely because you're an "enemy of the state?"
Military trials at the cessation of hostilities. And we had started trials without the end of fighting, and now Obama wants to shut it down, and give US rights to persons that really don't deserve US rights. They really deserve a bullet.
The unofficial rule on the battlefields in Afghanistan will now be: "Shoot first, and take no prisoners." Oops.
