WASHINGTON — President Bush signed an executive order on Tuesday that allows military tribunals to try any [b]foreigners[/b] captured by U.S. forces[red][b] in Afghanistan or linked to the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon[/b][/red]. Bush's order, the first such action by a U.S. president since World War II, gives Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld the power to establish tribunals that could try foreign terrorism suspects here or abroad in secret, without many of the constitutional protections given to defendants in the federal court system.

It won't be long before it'll be applied to "domestic terrorists". [(:|)]

Yes, and then they will round us all up and put us in death camps. That's what they want, after all. This whole war thing is just a ruse to take away our guns.

Hasn't been a weapon yet devised that hasn't been used. This one will also, lets see if you are shrieking for joy or anguish when it is used against you or yours.

"Bush's order, the first such action by a U.S. president since World War II..." It's been used before.

From the linked article: "After President Lincoln was slain in 1865, a panel of generals and colonels tried eight civilians charged with aiding the president's killer, John Wilkes Booth. All eight were convicted, and four were hanged." There is a precedent for trying Americans in such tribunals.

Foreign COMBATANTS should be dealt with as such. If they are citizens that is a different matter. Fuck the ACLU!
