« "Joe Schmo 2" | Main | Evidence that women are more committed than men? »

June 17, 2004



If we leave prisoners detained at places where terrorists can attempt to free them, all in the name of domestic law, it risks the lives of our people, to which I am not prepared to needlessly accept. This is war, and unpleasant things need to be done. The people in Guantanamo are not the innocent Japanese of WWII, they are thugs who are lucky they weren't just killed on the battlefield.

The options today are imprison them or kill them. If the Court rules that the Guantanamo detainees have access to U.S. courts, then the imprison them option becomes limited. Our generals can't be shuttled back and forth to testify at every habeas hearing.
