WTF Mate!

Can somebody please explain to me how individuals that are not citizens of the United States deserve the privilege of our civilian court system? While I have been quick to denounce torture on this site, I would not go as far left as to say that these people should be protected by our Constitution. President Bush may have become the pariah for Gitmo, but newsflash folks, he didn't create it. The Supreme Court's decision to offer detainees rights in the U.S. Constitution could be their worst decision since ruling that private industry can take private land for commercial use. I'm sure that human rights advocates will celebrate this landmark decision, but to paraphrase Jack Nicholson from A Few Good Men, "all they did was weaken a country today...that's all you did. You put people's lives in danger. Sweet dreams son." You can't hand people that want to destroy your civilization the keys to the castle. That's the bottom line. Enemies of this nation should not enjoy the same Constitutional rights of legal, taxpaying, and loyal citizens of this great country. I am outraged that an institution as vital as the Supreme Court would make such a reckless decision that threatens our national security. I always thought the Supreme Court's role was to interpret the Constitution, not rewrite it. Shameful.
