At a Senate hearing July 7 on the use of military commissions to prosecute terrorists being held at Guantanamo Bay, Senator John McCain questioned Assistant Attorney General David Kris on whether terrorists had “constitutional rights.”
“So you are saying that these people who are at Guantanamo, who were part of 9/11, who committed acts of war against the United States, have constitutional rights under the Constitution of the United States of America?” McCain asked.
“Within the framework I just described, the answer is yes, the due process clause guarantees and imposes some requirements on the conduct of (military) commissions,” Kris said.
So there you have it, folks. Terrorists who fight under no flag, wear no uniform, and target civilians have the same rights as you or I.
Senator McCain should have shot this asshole … except he was merely parroting President Obama’s new world order bullshit (known on these pages as Obamunism).
