Still mincing words

To say that they do not deserve the protections of the constitution is the same as saying they do not deserve their inalienable rights. The constitution simply codifies these rights... it does not provide them. You are twisting and turning to try and avoid admitting that Rand was way out of line when stating "they do not deserve the protections of our constitution". The protections of our constitution ARE those inalienable rights.

On Gitmo:

I say give them a fair trial as all human beings have a right to. If they are found guilty then move them to a new prison. Gitmo has disgraced this nation and added more hatred to the already overwhelming amount of American-Hatred felt by the rest of the world. Wanting to keep it open is bad for morale.
