Thoughts on Senator McCain saying indefinite detention without trial or recourse is a good thing?


After Senator Rand Paul's recent filibuster, Senator McCain derided his fellow Republican, making Paul's protection of the Constitution seem "insulting." In a recent interview, Senator Paul revealed that Senator McCain said that indefinite detention of Americans without trial or recourse to appeal is a good thing, if they are accused of being enemy combatants. The problem is, who gets to accuse? And if you are ever wrongly accused, wouldn't you like to stop McCain and his kind from trashing the Constitution? Wouldn't you like to restore habeas corpus, like Obama promised he would?

    I'm afraid you may be right. Obama certainly didn't deserve the Nobel Prize for Peace. And then he attacked Libya which did nothing to America. Sweet lies. And to think I voted for him! Yuck!

    I think you're wrong...McCain has the moral ground here...the rest of you don't! McCain supported this policy when Bush did it too.Of course he would support it now. How about you? Were you Ok when Bush suspended habeus after 9/11?Or just now?
