Re: Enemy combatants
If you were to actually look into the Patriot Act, you would see that he IS a terrorist and is subject to the Patriot Act.

Of course he is a terrorist. But the provisions of the Patriot Act that strip away rights do not apply to all terrorists.

Are you that confident that his religion won't be used as being sufficient "evidence"?

Yes, I am confident. But if you have an argument to the contrary, make it.

Wait, what's that? politicians are ALREADY calling him an enemy comabtant. How's that for justice from those in office?

I am aware of that. It is not justice, but who cares what those politicians say. It's only when they get their way that matters. So far, they are not getting their way.

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

I would say here something that was heard from an ecclesiastic of the most eminent degree; ‘That the intention of the Holy Ghost is to teach us how one goes to heaven, not how the heaven goes.’ Galileo Galilei 1615.

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass
