Sympathy for the Devil: S. Ct. Hearts Terrorists; A Judge Ito/O.J. Jury in Every Terrorist Pot

By Debbie Schlussel
At least five of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices announced to the global Islamic terrorist community that open season on America has officially begun.
It unofficially began a few decades ago, when our planes were hijacked by the PFLP and in later attacks by Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda.
But now, the Supreme Court has announced to world that every terrorist, no matter how bent on destroying America–and regardless of whether or not the terrorist had any contact with American soil–now has a right to their own three ring court circus, MC’d by some ringmaster clone of Judge Ito and attended by his/her posse of O.J. jury replications.
They . . .


HEART Them . . .

In a five-to-four decision, Justices Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, David Souter, and John Paul Stevens, gave all Guantanamo detainees–hardened Islamic terrorists all–access to U.S. courts. They were given the right to file habeas corpus petitions challenging their detentions in America’s federal court system.
They essentially said to our enemies:
“Come on Down. You’re the next contestant on the Price is Lite.” Yup, the price for committing terrorism against Americans overseas is very lite. A free trip to America, getting to stay on our soil, and maybe even filing a petition for asylum and citizenship.
All of that can and will happen with this absurd decision.
Kudos for the smart, but minority, position on the court–the dissent of Chief Justice John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito:

In dissent, Chief Justice John Roberts criticized his colleagues for striking down what he called “the most generous set of procedural protections ever afforded aliens detained by this country as enemy combatants.” . . .
Scalia said the nation is “at war with radical Islamists” and that the court’s decision “will make the war harder on us. It will almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed.”

Yes, it will. But, hey, what’s a little more spilt American blood, when we can show how much more we’re willing to bend over–backward and forward–to appease those who’d destroy us.
Oh, and by the way, the Kennedy decision was 70 pages. If you have to write seventy pages to justify a simple, absurd decision, you know you’re wrong. You’re just fertilizing.
Sadly, the only thing that grows there is America’s quicker demise. We’re going to be hearing a lot of, “If [The Glove] Does Not Fit, You Must Acquit,” in our future.
Muslims Thank America’s Supreme Court . . .


For Their Promising Future . . .

Not really surprising, unfortunately. For the most part, Supreme Court has been a joke in the years following ALA Schechter v US (1935).
Many awful decisions, including…
Murray v. Curlett
Roe v Wade
Miranda v Arizona
Kelo v City of New London
Even though Brown v Board had the positive effect of de-segregating schools, there was no legal theory involved, and sad to say, so many schools have gone back to being segregated, anyway.
Don’t even get me started on how pathetic the State supreme courts are.

I know that as of August of last year, at least 30 ex-detainees of Guantanamo Bay have been killed or recaptured after shooting at, and killing or wounding American and allied military forces in Afghanistan. This AFTER their release from Gitmo.
Ronald Regan was too kind to liberals when he said; ìitís not that theyíre ignorant, itís that they know so much that isnít so.î
Truth be known, liberal thinking is willful ignorance and self destructive. Trouble is, they want to take us down with them.

Once again the courts dish out another f–ked up decision. Isn’t it enough that every time we let a detainee free they commit another act of terror. They end up on the battle field with an AK in their hands.
Let this be a lesson to the troops. TAKE NO PRISONERS. GIVE NO QUARTER. NO PROBLEM.

“It will almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed.”
Hopefully it will also cause more enemy combatants to be killed. Would you bring ’em back for a show trial and 15 minutes of fame if you could get what info you can out of ’em and then kill them?

Kalifornia Kafir on June 12, 2008 at 12:58 pm

Oy vey! Let’s give ’em access to not only the ACLU but also the federal treasury. Al Qaeda has played up the U.S Supreme Court for gonahs.

As I’ve said countless times in the past: LIBERALS Hate America.
Just remember this Supreme Court ruling the next time a LIBERAL goes “postal” whenever you question his patriotism.
LIBERALS ARE NOT PATRIOTIC TO THE U.S. They would rather see this country burn than pledge their allegiance to it.

Thee_Bruno on June 12, 2008 at 1:22 pm

And they wonder why this country is going in the tank. It’s decisions such as this that further undermine what little integrity the US has and panders to the liberals who want to take over and put us under for good.
America be aware! The war’s coming to a neighborhood near you because the door has been left open for moooslims to waltz in.
Lock and Load!!!

They must be taking heir lead from international law — laws of Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Libya, and other leading countries who these five apparently look to for guidance.

1shot1kill, I will stand shoulder to shoulder with you in this fight against evil. We have many more enemies than just the moozlums who after us!!

newinnewark on June 12, 2008 at 3:24 pm

I too will stand beside both of you in this coming battle. I never shot a gun in my life, but I’m gonna learn sometime soon.
And when I do, I’m gonna blast these terriosts like in the videogame “Contra”.

During the Battle of the Bulge, military jurists ordered the summary and quick – done on the battlefield – execution of Germans who were caught in US uniforms. And Germany wasn’t a “failed state” like Afghanistan. I would put all Islamic terrorists under miltary justice, and direct same to settle questions of fact at the earliest opportunity.

Does this mean we’ve all surrendered? NEVER!!!
I will NOT surrender to the leftists and their desires of death and destruction. They want terrorists to win because they think it will make us all “feel” better! If this is what make the Leftists feel better, then I want them to weep!!!
I knew these guys would get a lot of good people killed. I knew they would make this move. I knew that the high food and gas prices were coming. I also knew that they would never give up their power without being forced out.
I’ve prepared and urged others to prepare since 2003. Almost everyone I’ve exhorted to prepare has laughed it off, saying I was nuts. Now some folks told me today and yesterday they wish they’d listen.
Same thing with Noah in Genesis. For 120 years he told folks to repent while building and stocking the ark. They kept up their riotous living until the floods came and they all drowned. I though people were smarter than to let this repeat. If there is little food, fuel, clothing – then what kind of success or intelligence can you claim!? Starving men and women who had the chance for storing a year’s supply and blew it with stupidity are just that – stupid!
Since the majority of Americans want things this way by not willing to do what it takes to fix it all will get what they worked for. Does anyone deserve this kind of crap? No! But they can chose to screw themselves! Looks like all the leftists chose it, and many other moderates and some conservatives also.
We’re set for terror attacks in a time of unstable energy and food supplies, lax security, and now we face amnesty for terrorists! They will attack more often and many will loose their lives!!!

IF… IF you prepare, you shall not fear!

Ehh mixed feeelings on this. Not because I like terrorists, but because we are a nation of laws that must be obeyed. if there is precident for a situation like gitmo, let me know, and I will change my mind.

mindy1 on June 12, 2008 at 9:34 pm

Wow – this post makes it clear that hospitalization is in your (very near) future. The decision does not by its plain language apply to enemy combatants held in foreign countries (which Guantanamo is not). So when you say that ‘regardless of whether or not the terrorist had any contact with American soil’ they have the writ is, well, wrong. Staggeringly wrong. Stupidly wrong.
Geeze – didn’t you pay attention in ConLaw? You need treatment. Please get some help.
Dare you to leave this comment up …

Idiots that pine for the gitmo detainees will have a hard time dealing with the down fall of this society that is sure to follow a horrible ruling. The amount of intelligence gathered from these subhumans in captivity can’t be measured. This “humane” approach to war has never happened because it helps the enemy. Don’t be surprised by a dwindling amount of prisoners being taken. The only way to guarantee a bad guy won’t try to kill again is to kill them. Problem solved. This decision was for the cake eaters and college edumacated jerk offs that think they can reason with psycopaths.

samurai on June 12, 2008 at 10:51 pm

Blogen is off his/her meds. The 5 justices that voted for the detainees don’t care about the location of gitmo only that these poor poor poor poor subhumans are locked up and now they have the same rights to courts that real Americans have. They think they can nice the terrorists into submission.

samurai on June 12, 2008 at 10:56 pm

Thank you samurai!
Looks like Audacious got a new screen name.

bhparkman on June 12, 2008 at 11:21 pm

Everyone breathe for a moment, please…. now how and why would any American object to the simple requirement that our Government prove that someone is guilty before we imprison them indefinitely or execute them? That is all that yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling required — not that detainees be released, but that their guilt be proven in a fair proceeding.
When did we decide that rule of law means nothing in this country? It’s depressing.
