A Question for the ACLU...
...what the hell is wrong with you people?Jay at Stop the ACLU has the story: ACLU Wants Suspected Terrorists Allowed Back Into U.S..
Do you really want to give the government the power to keep citizens out of the country without the intervention of a court?

Anyone with a good brain and who cares about American Ideals has known for 60 years that the ACLU hates America and in partricular the Constitution. The ACLU has been wagaing war on the Bill of Rights at least since 1946; maybe longer but I was to young before then to understand. I used to think it was because they were a pro Communist group. But after Ronnie crushed Communism they turned their support to NAZImuslims. What has been consistent with the ACLU the last 60 years is their attacks on the American Constitution; regardless of who they are supporting to do it.

That said, are you actually saying that since these things happened, we should get ours while we can, ensuring that tyranny happens, and only railing against it when "the other side" does it? Because that is what it sounds like you are doing from where I sit.

All we have to do, is enforce the treason law. If you supported terrorists today please line up against the wall so you can be shot dead.
Thank you, and please tell allah to go F##k himself.

And that has what, exactly, to do with this case? If there is evidence to charge them, charge them, arrest them, and try them. If there is not evidence, but the government suspects, watch them. But I'm not willing to give up my 5th amendment rights against self-incrimination or my 4th amendment rights against due process. It scares me that several of you seem to be ready to do just that. What was the line about "essential liberty" and "security" and the tradeoffs between them?

Small clarification: Due process and self-incrimination are both in the 5th. The 14th ammendment elaborates on due process. The 4th is about searches & seizures which I don't believe are in play (yet).
What was the line about "essential liberty" and "security" and the tradeoffs between them?
It varies depending on who you ask and it's usually attributed to Ben Franklin:
'They that can give up essential freedom to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
