    Isolated in a cage and alone? I could see how it could be quite frustrating.

    Well, you can say "Liberty and justice for all,"
    or you can say "Liberty and justice for just a few."
    Pick one.
    I should make a note that if it's just for a few, I would
    guess the few to be the top .01%, because when justice
    is select that is what happens. Wait, didn't a bunch of the
    top .01% banks just get caught breaking laws and got
    fined billions of dollars without any criminal prosecutions.
    Maybe it already is "Liberty and justice for a few" already.

    Do you know where that phrase comes from? Do you know that it's just a part of a sentence that refers to this nation and it's people?

    Yeah, it's why they're called "human" rights, not "American" rights.

    And this guy apparently isn't an 'enemy' just a guy caught up in the hysteria, which is of course why we should respect human rights.

I don't understand why this is any issue when our enemies are chopping off heads...
    It's an issue because the U.S. doesn't compare itself to terrorists to get moral authority for it's acts.

    Hard to believe a libertarian has so little regard for human rights. Can't tell if this is a real response or sarcasm.
