    I'm good at pointing out the obvious And I never implied you thought it was 100% dead on and were referring to the quotes and is probably why you didn't link the site so it wouldn't cloud the people's view when reading that...Am I close?

    I see people go into , finger in the ear mode when certain sources are used. Regardless of the information given.

    Pretty much. Its like MoveOn.org stating Bush mismanaged the war. I agree but think the people who run that site are trash.

    Finger in the ear or head up the butt mode

    Regarding citizens, what about Jose Padilla? He's a US citizen SUSPECTED of involvement with terrorism, and was imprisoned without charge for 3 years before finally actually having the opportunity of a trial. He may be guilty, but the point is he hasn't been convicted yet. Innocent until proven guilty is our law. Tim McVey was a terrorist but we tried him in a CRIMINAL court; he was NOT an "enemy combatant", yet the crime was the same.

    Terrorism is a crime. If a US citizen commits it they should be tried in a criminal court, not as an "enemy combatant." If this bill reinforces the Pentagon's ability to designate citizens as "enemy combatants" then we truly have lost our essential liberties.

    I think I hear a few hundred thousand of our fallen vets rolling in their graves as we speak.

    He was held under the state of New York that had a warrant out for him before he was labeled an "enemy combatant". He was assigned under the AUMFAI Resolution of 2002 which made is perfectly legal. Today he would go through a tribunal which can be appealed all the way to the US Supreme Court to determine that status therefore the bill actually protects people like Padilla more than it did 2 years ago. In fact, he probably couldn't even be labeled unless he had dual citizenship (and even that is unknown) and was afilliated with known terror networks and that has to be proven.

    Can you please read what the bills states before once again, like many others, assuming what the US determines an "enemy combatant"?

    I agree, our country is not a strong country anymore. Our current generation could never match the WWII generation. Our enemy knows this and exploits this weakness.

    Osama watches CNN on his little satellite tv piped through the rock he's hiding under and is laughing his ass off! It might as well be Comedy Central to him.

    I am as anti-totalitarian as anyone, but I thought that previous to this new law, we as a country were being "very good sports" by granting non-citizens the same rights as native citizens, when they were on American soil. I understand that people are concerned that this law ia first step toward a fascist regime, but If you are a citizen It would be difficult to strip you of your rights. This new law also provides for congressional and judicial review. I think all this acromony about "Habeus Corpus", was a "smokescreen" for the adendum on the bill, which absolves the current president from being tried for any alleged war crimes involving illegal torture.

    Wouldn't that make for some must see tv, GWB being tried for war crimes, with president HIllary waiting in the wings to envoke an "enemy combantant" lable on him?

    Especially when she voted for the resolution that gave him authority to do so in the first place?

    Yes, would be pretty interesting
