A former CIA officer has said its ridiculous that the Bush administration didn't execute numerous prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, regardless of whether they have had a trial, when it had the chance.

"Many of those individuals that are there are enemy combatants and that's based on the Geneva Conventions and should be executed," said Gary Berntsen, who spent 20 years with the CIA, to Fox's Gretchen Carlson on the show, Fox & Friends.

Idiot.

My question is what happens when the people of the United States (regular people, not the government) start deciding that the "official" members of the government are "enemy combatants" of the Constitution?

If that situation arises, what then, Mr. CIA Officer?

I'm not sure if it's covered in the video or not, but I'd be more concerned about the 'official members of the Constitution' start deciding the regular people are "enemy combatants". I think it's far more likely.
