Are we witnessing the price of admission?

Had Rand ever mentioned anything about Gitmo prior to his "little talk" with Mitch McConnell? Because the statement “Foreign terrorists do not deserve the protections of our Constitution” is very deeply troubling in a number of ways. Presumption of innocence? Nope. Habeas Corpus? Nope. Due process? Nope. Natural rights? Nope. These aren't little minor issues which can be explained away. There are more ethical and sensible ways to communicate a strong position on national defense without abandoning the core pillars of liberty.
