Being Held for something we 'might' do?

By | October 1, 2011

Prolonged Detention.

Rachel Maddow addresses the President’s proposal to indefinitely detain persons who are threats to this country, because of something they “might” do.

I looked the video up because some say Al-Awlaki should not have been killed.
They are saying he should have gotten a trial.
 
Awlaki was placed on the CIA capture or kill list – he was involved in the underwear bomber’s activity among other detestable plans to recruit our own people and turn them against us with intent to bring our country to it’s knees, as well as murder her citizens.

I understand the fear of slippery slope, (declaring a person a threat and then “taking them out” without due process of law) but his were acts of war agains this nation.

Awlaki made himself a part of Al-Queda.

As for the slippery slope – the ability to detain a person since they are very likely to commit a crime against our nation – I regret to inform you, that the first few steps have already been tread upon it.  This video is two years old.

In it, President Obama proposes to construct a “legal regime” with congressional and judiciary oversights.
This means separate from our judicial system and military commissions.

His examples are in regards to those who are training in terrorist camps today.
Here is the information for anyone who wants it.

    Maddow is against prolonged detention for terrorist …. But, what about for Tea Party folks?? I think she could twist in a good reason for that to be okay.
