Well, the 9th circuit just ruled that foreign fighters who are not entitled to POW status because they did not wear uniforms or act as part of a formal army, and who were captured in a FOREIGN country UNDER BATTLE CONDITIONS are nevertheless entitled to the same rights afforded US Citizens.

Fucking unbelieveable.

My view on this shit is simple. Never give an "enemy combatant" picked up in a hot zone and who isn't a US citizen a lawyer. They should either get a uniform or get hanged.

Bush needs to tell those idiots he is Commander-In-Chief and will treat these prisoners as he wishes. As Andy Jackson said "The Court has made it's ruling, now let's see it enforce it."

Simple solution: Take no prisoners.

Better solution. Imprison the leftest freaks that make up the 9th Circuit.

Simple solution - leave them overseas - give them to the Israelis!

Please correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't the 9th Circuit have jurisdiction over western states? What POW's are we talking about? Somebody start a war with Mexico and didn't bother to invite us? CW

Yes… but this case was filed in the 9th Circuit because this was the only Circuit where they could get this kind of idiot decision. The prisoners are being held off shore so the filing was made wherever the complaining lawyers choose. There is already well-established law and Supreme Court precedent to overturn this latest 9th Circuit folly. This decision will almost 100% certainly be overturned as are most other 9th Circuit rulings.
