I'd like to see people who should know better stop calling this the [b]War on Terror[/b] and start calling it what it is: a fight to the death against militant Islam and the terrorists it spawns. I would hate to think that the [b]War on Terror[/b] will end up being as successful, for instance, as the [b]War on Drugs[/b] has been. After all, how does one fight a [b]War[/b] against a concept like [b]Terror[/b], [b]Drugs[/b] or [b]Poverty[/b]? Is there even a device by which [b]War[/b] can be declared against anything but another sovereign state? If not, means to do so should be created by Congress. After all, if al Qaeda, Hizbollah, Jamaah Islamiyah and others of their ilk can declare [b]War[/b] against America, we ought to be able to return the favor.

Actually, one was a dem appointee and one a repub -according to NPR.[Why should that be un-surprising; there's no difference]. Anyhow [despite Mc Carthy's slanted sucking-up to TPTB], the 2nd Circuit may have 'backed-into' doing the right thing. Lincoln's actions certainly don't suffice as a legal precedent[our most fascist president until roosieveldt] nor do german sabateurs during an actual 'war'[instead of mass manipulation of sheeple for a govt's. self-aggrandizement]. As someone tangentially pointed out, 'war' on a state of mind [or 'objects'-drugs,guns,etc] is simply a shell game by those who can 'benefit' by expansion of power and intrusive control. And 'national security' is the most worn-out smokescreen for both ignorance and incompetence on the planet. Supposedly, Padilla, has an IQ of about 80 and the feds don't have any physical evidence[radioactive] to prove squat-so der wussya 'declares' him a 'demon' for some facetime. Whatever the 'legal' precedents, this incident is simply an impotent exercise in basic BoR's abrogation. IF the feds have a provable case, let's see it-otherwise, it could be ANYBODY that they snatch off the street and 'disappear'. Let's see some facts rather than PR demonization.[And I truly feel sorry for any citizens that let such obvious fed 'boogeymen' disturb their existence.]. Ghost
