Supreme Court Sides With Terrorists

The Supreme Court’s decision on military tribunals for captured terrorists is just one more good reason why the Culture War for America’s soul is important and must be pursued to its logical conclusion: A conservative court that sticks to the Constitution.

That means not usurping the President’s role as Commander in Chief and not extending the rights and protections afforded U.S. citizens to foreign murderers.

Congress should weigh in on the side of the President on this one. The War on Terror is a fight to the death and we need to stop treating it and the terrorists as just another “gotcha” excuse for Bush-hating politicians.

Non-uniformed illegal combatants who do not follow the Geneva Convention ought to have no protection under any law—national or international. They ought to be coerced into giving up whatever information they have before being executed. Period.
