They are enemy combatants captured in action against the US. They are not merely terrorists.Terrorists have always been considered criminals, what is the reason that the United states decided to define the terrorists in Guantanamo bay as soldiers.
You need to read the Geneva Convention and note the section about non-uniformed enemy combatants.
Timothy Mcvay, Ramsey yousef, the lockerbie bomber. all three were terrorists and they did not have to be designated as enemy combatants.
We're supposed to be better than the people we're fighting.
Here's the thing: not all of these people were captured "in action." Some were literally just handed over by neighbors. For money.
If they're guilty of something, the government needs to present its evidence and convict them. In public. It's not particularly critical to me whether this happens in a civilian in court or not, my beef is with the fact that it's happening in secret. Justice done in secret is not justice.
