    Either the government is worthy of your trust, or it is not.

    I'll never understand anyone who believes the government is competent to decide who does or does not deserve a right as essential as habeas corpus, while at the same time believing that the government is not competent enough to run (as others would phrase it) 1/7th of the economy.

    TED,

    Wrong, but at least you are consistent; you attempted to support a ridiculous absurd claim with nothing more than speculative diatribe and your weak efforts to support the foolish claim only served to make you look even more ridiculous.

    Without any precedence and ZERO facts, you make an absurd claim that the Government can just go about declaring US citizens non-citizens and make them enemy combatants in a debate about alien non-uniformed enemy combatants being held at Guantanamo.

    Carry on.

    I have always been amused by this simplistic view; we are going to show them Republicans by voting in the mentally challenged morons we now have running Government.

    Yep, you REALLY showed them didn't you?

    Oh well.
    They say that the first stage to recovery is admitting you made a mistake or have a problem; this is a positive sign you are on the road to recovery.

    But alas, it continues to BEG the question, what was it about Bush's Presidency that made you so mad as to abandon all reason? Was it the war?

    Why weren't Independents just as mad at Democrats who voted for it in the majority as well?

    Was it the economy? Hard to blame the economy as it was one of our better times considering the devastation post 9-11, fighting two wars and Katrina.

    I am always bemused by this anger for a man who had the most Bi-Partisan legislation in recent memory and had overwhelming support in everything he did, that is until after he did them.

    As The Obama has the only qualification that matters to you -- a (D) next to his name -- this is no surprise.

    However true that may be, the important issue here is "alien".
    Citizens, by definition are not "aliens", and so citizens never need be concerned with being classed an alien enemy combatant

    After all, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 gave the government the authority to decide who an unlawful enemy combatant was. What makes you think they can't decide what defines an alien enemy combatant?
    See above.
