This is a great video with footage of Rand Paul asking John Mccain questions about Americans being declared enemy combatants then Mccain sidesteps and pretty much admits that anyone can be declared a threat. He also gets interviewed by Judge Napolitano . Most American members will probably enjoy this clip. It covers a lot of ground in 5 minutes.



Rand Paul talks about his opposition to S-1867 that authorizes Military Detention of civilians without Habeas Corpus or Due Process

Have they ever even detained a person to Guantanamo Bay that was tied to terrorism? I'm not aware if they have, and if not, that's what makes this doubly distressing.

There are Americans in Guantanamo Bay, but I'm unsure if they were detained on American or foreign soil. All the cases I have heard about were people captured in the Middle East mostly.

But has anyone there actually been tied to anything?

EDIT: Now that I think about it, I remember Omar Khadr being convicted, but is that it? In 2005, they had at least 500 detainees, but only one was actually convicted?

So basically this means you are guilty until proven innocent. Oh my, without a right to a trial, I suppose you are just presumed guilty!

Police State 2012 coming to a town near you! This is pretty ridiculous to be honest.

I know of one specific case of a Canadian citizen who was caught in Afghanistan when he was 15 shortly after the US/NATO invasion. I believe he was the only one caught alive and an American solider was killed. The 15 year old kid got blamed for the death and was still in Guantanamo Bay until his trial. He eventually got a trial and most people say it wasn't a fair trial. I believe he is now in an American jail and gets to go to a Canadian jail in a few years. His name is Omar Kadhr.

Harold and Kumar were sent to Guantanamo Bay, but they got out.
