The administration moved to give Enemy Combatants US Constitutional Rights. In a story that broke yesterday Enemy Combatants now have to be given their rights. this sounds like a great way to get more terrorists into this country. Give them their rights and bring them to the US for trial. Soldiers will next have to collect evidence from the battle field and make sure the chain of evidence is followed. A terrorist loving Lawyer will then get the case thrown out of court and we have a terrorist loose in this country. What next will we give them the materials and plans to make bombs to kill us?

my honest opinion in this is, your prisoner, your responsibility. But also think that if the SUSPECTED terrorist is free, it will not stay in the us but will get deported to his home country or another

Or, the Bahamas? Like the Chinese Wiggers are now? No surveillance, they can leave if they choose to. No bars, nothing they are probably basking in the sunshine now as I type! I'd love to go to the Bahamas for a vacation.... I can't.... but my tax dollars are now sending terrorists!

This is the problem - According to several UN Internation Treaty (signed by the US) you can not deport them unless the home nation wants them and you can not send them any where where they might be subjected to torture or abuse. Most countries want these men for the purpose of getting information or they are suspected of criminal activity or they may become trouble makers. It is like a child rapist who wants them in their neighborhood. All the rights are infavor of the criminal.

Non-citizens are not covered under the Constitution and do not have any rights. Our enemies certainly do not. 0bozo is making it harder to defend our country from terrorism... and as a Constitutional lecturer.... he has to be doing it deliberately. Therefore, 0bozo is a traitor and an enemy to America... and should be regarded and treated as such.

How do you like how Obozo sent Chinese terrorists to the Bahamas Destiny? On our tax dollars! The next batch will probably go to Hawaii! Watch how fast these places start having unrest and struggles with the lol, "peaceful" religion of Islam.... It makes me sick that they are in the Bahamas roaming free! Now, America gives MORE rights to terrorists!

Isn't this upsetting? I suppose from now on any detainees captured will be coming here and getting the same rights we American citizens have. Yeah, fill our overcrowded prisons with terrorists to recruit more terrorists..., To think we had no say whatsoever in this matter as well as many other major issues in this country....

Some say it will be easier to shoot them on the battle field and not take prisoners.

This is absurd. This is not a criminal offense,the military should handle this. This is currently taking place in other countries so how can we enforce our form of Criminal Justice on them. None of the countries we are currently involved with trying to remove this threat want our form of Government. In my view not only is this wrong I think it opens up a can of worms in regard to our Constituional privileges I don't know know if even the Geneva Commission covers the situation we are in now We are not fighting with a country,these "combatants" are not organized like any force we have ever to deal with. Does this mean they will be brought to America for trial? If they are brought here I can for see even greater problems

So from now on? Every war we are in or will get into the "detainees" will get Miranda rights and get shipped here? All on OUR tax dollars? It looks to me as if terrorists now have MORE rights than we Americans do! We don't even get a say in the matter! The majority of this country has been saying we don't want them here! Were our opinions ever really considered? How many prisoners will our military take now that terrorists get more rights than the very people at home they are fighting for?

The US was starting to read miranda rights to suspected terrorist since towards the end of the Bush Administration. Its just now coming public that we are doing this. Calm down for a minute. If things are done correctly as they should be done there is no reason why these people will be set free if we have the proper evidence against them.

This is not a criminal matter it is an intelligence operations trying to find out what they have planned and if they are going to attack us. We can not wait until after the fact. Under all the international treaties these people have no rights if they are foreigners, not in a recognized army, not in uniform, and fighting against us. FDR caught German sailors in civilian clothes and had them executed. One Diplomat in the 1700 categorized Pirates and others who terrorized civilians as beneath human and not entitled to any rights given humans. There are times I have to agree with him.
