Right to a fair trial Main article: Right to a fair trial Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.
Rights that cannot be derogated for reasons of national security in any circumstances are known as peremptory norms or jus cogens. Such United Nations Charter obligations are binding on all states and cannot be modified by treaty. Examples of national security being used to justify human rights violations include the Japanese American internment during World War II, Stalin's Great Purge, and the modern-day abuses of terror suspects rights by some countries, often in the name of the War on Terror.

Its amazing how the general population can tell you everything about Kim Kardashian but when it comes to important stuff that the government is trying to do secretly all I ever get is "huh?"
There does not appear to be a territorial limitation on this directive, so it probably also applies within the United States. Sec. 1032 (b)(1) specifically states that the requirement to take to detain a person in military custody doesn’t extend to U.S. citizens. So, it’s not required, but does that mean it’s still allowable? Is it now OK to detain an American citizen in the U.S. without the traditional protections of the Bill of Rights?
