Mr. Obama, you say we’re at war. Do you REALLY believe that?

Mr. Obama, if we are indeed “at war,” why are we Mirandizing combatants instead of turning them over to the military?

If we are at war, why won’t you call those who are ACTUALLY TRYING TO KILL US the “enemy,” rather than “threats,” or using another of your many meaningless euphemisms?

Despite what you say Mr. Obama, your “administration acts as though terrorist attacks on U.S. soil are criminal matters, not acts of war. That policy means that a terrorist planning to attack Americans is best off trying to kill as many people as possible on U.S. soil. That way he can not only get a civilian trial and public defenders paid for by American taxpayers. He can keep his secrets safe. And he won’t have to face U.S. soldiers trying to kill him in firefights in Afghanistan or Iraq.”

Talk about perverse incentives. The law is supposed to protect Americans, not make them easy targets for terrorists.

The law is intended to protect Americans. We do our constitutional rights no favor by pretending that enemy combatants have the same rights as ordinary criminals.
