We don't give prisoners of war due process. We are respecting their feelings. We are making special diets for them that support their religion. We give them their bible, the Koran, to read, and we permit their prayer. We do many things for these prisoners that we never did in previous wars. I also understand, as a lubricant, we are dipping all of our ordnance and cartridges in pig fat . What more could anyone ask? Thank you, Lynn

There are reasonable risks associated with living in a free society, and due process for everyone is part of a free society. Giving the suspects due process puts us at no greater risk of terrorist attack than does denying it to them.


I'm sure the German prisoners of war who were held in camps in Kansas, and the American aviators who were held in the Hanoi Hilton would love to hear your take on "due process."

The only one who doesn't deserve due process, a choice or for that matter, a trial, is GWB, based on what we think we know, we should save alot of money and just send GWB to Leavenworth---and Cheney. Just tell them based on what the evidence the far-left bloggo has, we are going to put you away.

Trial, we don't need no stinking trial.

whether we like or not we are at war with these terrorists. If you support the war, then you also support retaliations with representation. In other words (as Bush would say) War changes things and killing the enemy is part of war. If they are not killed outright by bombs or gunfire then consider them lucky to be put in prison for years until the war is resolved one way or another. Legal representation is not one of their options. If you don't like these options then "Do Not Start a War". It is as simple as that and applies to all countries of the World, bar none!

"but really what's more important, our safety or their rights."


This is a false choice. Actually very similar to Mr. Bushleague's FAVORITE false choice: "you're either with us or against us".

Funny thing about the pro-torture crowd--you all seem insistent on drawing a big black line to differentiate our enemies from our allies, but then you advocate a tactic that blurs the line. If we find terrorism repugnant, then how are we supposed to view our own govenment engaging in terrorist actions?

I guess I always thought that terrorism was despicable because of WHAT it was, not WHO it was being done to. Apparently there are many who don't have a problem with terrorism, per se--they just have a problem with Americans being the victims of terrorism.

Whatever they feel like, let them do. We should really be more considerate. I guess it could make Kansas a terrorist target, but really what's more important, our safety or their rights. Come on now, you know their rights trump our safety.

How about restoring the rule of law and the constitutional guarantees it imparts, then give them fair trials in our court system?

Ask them what they want and do that. We need to respect their feelings.

If they're tried and found guilty, yes. If they're tried and found not guilty, no.

Keep them in Cuba - if they don't like it - tough.

It would make Leavenworth a target for Islamic terrorists.
