Terrorists Protected by the Constitution?!

June 12, 2008

This is pure unadulterated insanity. If the left insists on feeding the beast, it will soon devour U.S.

Supreme Court Creates Killing

Update: ACLU Cheers!-By Warner Todd Huston

In a 5 to 4 decision, the idiots on the Supreme Court have decided that terrorists are covered by our Constitution, no matter where they are captured and held.

This is as wrong headed a decision as can be imagined and two of the Justices, Scalia and Roberts, were scathing in their dissent.

But, here is the real result of this ruling. No, it doesn’t “help” the murderers and terrorists get habeas corpus, or find rights, it will kill them on the battlefield. What battlefield commander will waste his time trying to figure out what rights the terrorist he is facing has or doesn’t have?

The proper and reasonable decision to make on the battlefield will be to automatically kill EVERY captured person as soon as you do a quick interrogation. After all, anything else will simply just get the commanders on the line in trouble with the “law.”

And, I cannot say I’d blame any American soldier on the battlefield. Just kill every one of those captured without regard for their status. Their innocence? Immaterial. Kill them anyway.

This is what the dolts on the SCOTUS have wrought.

So, here’s hoping that more of these people are merely executed on the field and left for dead instead of brought into custody, introduced to American rights, and then released into OUR country as they await their undeserved day in court. As they are let go HERE in THIS country while those who would assist them to destroy this country pretends to get them their day in court, they then will have access to THIS country where they can wreck their terrorist agenda.

Nice going SCOTUS. Not only will you be responsible for killing more on the battlefield, but you now have also set up the possibility that terrorists will be let go to freely enter our country to commit acts of terror on us while they pretend to be waiting for their court cases to be adjudicated.

In essence, the SCOTUS is now a party to automatic killing of prisoners and, for those not killed, they are a party to opening up this country for more terrorism. And the SCOTUS has materially damaged our ability to fight terrorists.

The law is an ass.

    Hey come on, be fair, the Military Commissions Act was only struck down here by a measly single vote from the Supremes. There’s still plenty of time left to gut the Constitution and promote American exceptionalism while building the modern police state, it just takes patience and commitment. You just have to want it, it’ll come.

    As soon as I saw the headline earlier today I knew how the vote went down. If Obama’s elected it’s only going to get worse. What a disaster.

    Actually this was a good decision in that the SCOTUS stuck to the Constitution instead of just doing what they thought was right. If people don’t like the Constitution, then they need to make an ammendment, but rewriting the Constitution is not the job of the judiciary. Sticking to the our democratic system of separation of powers will help us all in the long run.
