« A Revealing Discussion with Justice Stevens | Main | Designating the Revolutionary Guards a Terrorist Organization »

September 26, 2007


Bill in Chicago

When are we going to stop invading countries which had nothing to do with 9/11, and start confronting the real source of our problems with terrorism:

The overwhelming majority of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis, and now we learn that a majority of the suicide bombers in Iraq are Saudis. This is not a coincidence.

And there is no need to talk about "proxy wars" with the Saudis. They are attacking and murdering our troops with their own bloody hands.


By putting the Revolutionary Guard on the list of terrorists, I believe they have nullified the Third Geneva Convention, to which Iran is a signatory.

When a uniformed soldier carrying arms in the open is captured, they are given POW rights. Non state actors (terrorists and now the Iranian Revolutionary Guard) get the Gitmo detainee no habeas corpus (among other things) treatment.

I am not a lawyer, so see what you think after you look at Goldsmith, "The Terror Presidency", W.W. Norton & Co, 2007, pages 109-110.
