WASHINGTON - A federal judge ruled Monday that foreign terror suspects held in Cuba can challenge their confinement in U.S. courts and she criticized the Bush administration for holding hundreds of people without legal rights.
Judge Joyce Hens Green, handling claims filed by about 50 detainees at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, said the Supreme Court made clear last yearthat they have constitutional rights that lower courts should enforce."Although this nation unquestionably must take strong action under the leadership of the commander in chief to protect itself against enormous and unprecedented threats," she wrote, "that necessity cannot negate the existence of the most basic fundamental rights for which the people of this country have fought and died for well over 200 years. "
It never occured to me that Nathan Hale submitted to execution so as to preserve the rights of foreign combatants.Or for that matter that terrorist suspects were mentioned in The Constitution.
Good to know.
It is incredible to me to see just how perverted judges such as Green can make what was once a hallowed and honorable document.

What property? Only one I know has more than a set of shorts to crap in is UBL, and he's probably got it so hidden the CIA can't track it down.
N. Hale wasn't fighting to protect a constitution. He was fighting for the right to have a constitution. Sound familiar?

For a guy who's been out of office for a quarter century, Carter certainly has left us a rich and varied legacy. It's going to take me a long, long time to figure out how to adequately thank him for all he's done for this country.

"If the enemy shall put to death, torture or otherwise ill-treat any of the hostages in their hands,... recourse must be had to retaliation as the sole means of stopping the progress of human butchery, and... for that purpose punishments of the same kind and degree [should] be inflicted on an equal number of their subjects taken by us till they shall be taught due respect to the violated rights of nations." --Thomas Jefferson: Report to Congress, 1776.
