They keep using this term "incarcerate terrorism suspects who are deemed a threat to national security but cannot be tried"
what exactly is preventing them from being tried?

Justify this Obamatons,
There may still be a few around, but most have ran away. A pile of new ones showed up for a few months before elections. They were probably some of those paid internet people that Obama admitted to. And as far as the 'regulars' here who were smitten with Obama, they have mostly disappeared.... off meditating on 'change' and drinking more koolaide or something

I just don't understand why Obama would want to "establish a legal basis for the United States to incarcerate terrorism suspects who are deemed a threat to national security but cannot be tried..." (The source for this quote is from the New York Times article the OP included in his thread.
If they these terror suspects have committed a crime, then we should have them arrested and give them a fair trial. That's how law and justice work in the U.S. according to the constitution. If they can't be tried, does that not mean there wasn't sufficient evidence for them to be arrested and charged?
