I realize that there are people out there that are intent on our destruction.  I understand that these people need to be dealt with and the threat they represent needs to be neutralized.  However, simply declaring civilians to be “enemy combatants” and then having the military hold them indefinitely is going too far.

The president has in the past made a big deal about the “Rule of Law” in this country.  Given that, There can be no legitimate reason or excuse for this kind of “Rule by Presidential Decree”

A federal appeals court ruled that the president may not
declare civilians in this country “enemy combatants” and
have the military hold them indefinitely.
