Constitutional Rights, You Say?

The Obama administration and American Leftists have made it clear that foreign-born enemy combatants should be afforded constitutional rights. They should have lawyers. They should have speedy trials. They should not endure to enhanced interrogations. In fact, they could soon be free to establish a new terrorist cell in a neighborhood near you.
The soft position on terrorists is certainly consistent with the Obama foreign policy, but there is a bitter irony in the Left’s belated discovery of the United States Constitution. The same administration and the political movement that launched it have declared war on a number of such protections for American citizens.
