    First we say that they are not soldiers but civilians, and thus do not get the protection of the Geneva Convention.

    Now we say that they should be tried in a military court and not a civilian court.

    The majority don't want government run healthcare either..... Since when did the elected listen to the voters once the election was over?

    Please can we just stop electing idiots?

    Unless they short circuit the Holder decision quickly, this thing is going to be a complete fiasco for Obama, and thus, for America.

    How in the hell does one prosecute criminals in a civilian court who were not even been read their Miranda Rights at the time of capture?

    It just seems very odd...

    Enemy combatants is not the same (legally speaking) as enemy soldiers. Technically this means they are not civilians and since they are technically not soldiers of a specific country they are not guaranteed the same protections under the Geneva Convention. What's so hard to understand about this?

    The far left idealogues are leading the Democratic party off a cliff. Be careful what you wish for moonbats.
