Like it or not though, it's the law of this country that everyone is entitled to certain rights. Yes, he passed his own judgement on innocent people, and for that he is gonna lose his freedom at the very least. If it irks you that he's entitled to due process, I get it. But flaming other people here isn't gonna change that. Write your Congresspeople...they've got a lot more power to do something about it than you or I do.
Indeed. And if our response to terror is to diminish the rights and freedoms that are the foundation of democracy, then we have lost and they have won.
