It would make Leavenworth a target for Islamic terrorists.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

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
