This kind of writing sounds awfully familiar. From the Find Habeas blog:
David LaBrosse writes:
Unfortunately, while the suspension of Habeus Corpus is very disconcerting, we must first of all STOP!!! “ASSUMING” that the constitution applies to non-citizens, and foreign combatants. Our founding fathers had no intention of granting the same protections which citizens and legal residents are granted by the constitution to visitors, illegal aliens, and foreign combatants! Also, by the actual definition of the Convention of Geneva, ONLY the countries who signed the treaty at the time of it’s inception are those protected by it! AND, ONLY formal combatants of a signing country are protected. International criminals, insurgents, and terrorists were NEVER included in it’s agreements and tenants!!! Terrorists need to be hunted down, tried, and executed like the predatory vermin they are! I’m sure that if this note ever appears on your site, it will be removed promptly, since you really don’t care about a healthy debate of the issues, only your own subversive opinions.
The response by ACLU blogger and Georgetown Law student Gabe Rottman is well worth the read.
