"We can take care of terrorists within the constraints of the constitution"
--- Barack Hussein Obama
This is one of THE major problems with Obama's candidacy. Stopping terrorists is not a legal matter. Stopping terrorists is not a lawyer matter. Stopping terrorists is not an equal justice under the law matter. Stopping terrorists is not a civil rights matter. Stopping terrorists is not a stopping matter at all.
Stopping terrorists is a matter of THE ELIMINATION OF A THREAT. The threat may or may not be removed from the battlefield. If the terrorist is removed from the battlefield alive, Barack Hussein Obama wants to afford these murderers with the rights you and I enjoy under our Constitution. Giving terrorists rights under the Constitution is akin to removing half a cancerous tumor from your body--that which is allowed to live WILL come back to kill you. It is that simple.
One caveat here: The elimination of terrorists should only happen AFTER they have given up all their useful intelligence---speaking freely to those wonderful third world interrogators that we've contracted to perform this function as our vendors. It ain't pretty, none of this is pretty, but it is a job that must be done if free countries are to remain free.
Have you ever wondered why terror suspects or enemy combatants sometimes break free from a "prison" and are never heard from again or they are never recaptured? When they "escape" they are no longer "prisoners," rather they again revert to the title of "active battlefield participant" and the rules of engagement are suddenly changed on how to deal with the threat. An active battlefield participant is a different legal animal from a prisoner. Dig what I'm shoveling? Does 0ur military, or other functions of our government that are charged with holding terrorists, fire warning shots over the head of escapee or do they fire shots directly at an enemy combatant that is an active battlefield participant? If you are aware of any instance where the military has fired a warning shot, please cite a specific example.
