    Your right, anyone who fights and doesn't represent a nation state is a saboteur, terrorist, spy etc., the rules of war are clear on how the military should treat these individuals, whether being the aggressor or defender.

    captured, interrogated, tried and executed, and on the field if necessary.

    Because candidate obama and the entire democratic party promised us "the rule of law." If enacted into policy this will be just another campaign promise left in the dust.

    Because terror sympathizers that write newspaper articles and their colleagues on the airwaves shouldn't set our national security agenda, nor should ignorant Europeans and their propagandists.

    Why bend to the Europeans and Amerikan leftists?
    They've been wrong on virtually every major issue during the past 40-years.

    When you think they screw up enough courage to... say... vote for the use of force in Iraq... we find it wasn't a vote of conscience, but of political expediency.

    Following the public relations wind is dangerous and the realm of the weak, those without a moral compass, those lacking judgment: Bill Clinton and the modern Democrat party are the perfect examples.

    You've actually got that one backwards there. If they were a regularly organized army under the flag of a recognized state, they wouldn't be enemy combatants.

    I'm looking forward to hearing the explanations for why they're different:

    Holding detainees indefinitely with no trial in Cuba = Inhuman
    Holding detainees indefinitely with no trial in rural Illinois = Totally cool

    Must be something to do with air conditioning. Maybe Gitmo was too humid for them.

    It's easier to picket/protest a prison in Illinois.

    Not really.

    Thomson isn't close to any large cities. The area is rural and agricultural. It is also economically depressed. The State of Illinois figures around 3000 job openings for the locals, either at the TCC itself or with the facility supply/support chain.

    This is heartland America with heartland values. These people know each other and recognize who belongs in the area and who doesn't. I don't envision them supporting anyone who comes to picket/protest and disrupt their opportunity for prosperity.

    The facility and grounds is a restricted area. Federal marshal's, TCC correction officers, and local and state police all work together to maintain the security cordon.

    Proving the genius of Gitmo that uses the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and Atlantic Ocean to maintain the security cordon.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
