I am very concerned about the “mission creep” of the ALCU that this blog advocates. From my perspective as both an American Soldier and an American citizen, it appears the ALCU is drifting from becoming an American organization to a global organization. It appears as if the ACLU is now operating outside of the boundaries of the US protecting the rights of non-Americans with the US Constitution. I would hate to see such a historic and great organization as the ACLU transformed into or becoming a mental icon to millions of Americans as a pro bono terrorist lawyer firm. My opinion is that these terrorists are not Americans and the ACLU should not ruin its reputation by falling on its sword in defense of these evil non-American terrorists.
Let’s take a look at the ALCU mission statement, “The ACLU is our nation's guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country”. What does the above mission statement have anything to do with what is going on at Gitmo?
As a military officer for the last 12 years, I have spent 29 months in Iraq and 6 months in Bosnia being a fellow guardian of our nation’s liberty. I am very proud of my years of service and proud of my fellow American brother and sisters in service who comprise the guardians to our nation’s liberty. It disturbs me that my fellow guardians of our nation’s liberty, the ACLU, is more concerned about a terrorist’s rights than an American’s rights and our way of life that the terrorist wants to destroy. Of course these terrorists are going to say they were coerced and tortured, they all will say it if it will facilitate them getting released with the assistance of their ACLU counsel. We cannot take these evil people on their word, they are being trained to lie if captured. They are playing the ACLU and abusing the American Constitution. These terrorists should not be protected by our Constitution and the ACLU because they are not Americans! My fellow guardians of our nation’s liberty have recaptured about 60 of these dangerous terrorists back on the battlefield after they have been released from GITMO alone. Their recidivism rate is comparable to sexual predators of children. Let me assure you, these terrorists are not the victims and we should not feel the overwhelming need to feel bad for them.
I believe there are probably some minor problems with the congressional approved military commission process, but we shouldn’t close GITMO to simply have a “GITMO North” in the US. Nothing really changes and taxpayer money is simply being wasted. Also having international terrorists tried in the US in civilian courts also wastes taxpayer money and incites a public spectacle and potential violence. Even if the terrorists are found innocent in a US civilian court, the Attorney General already stated they would be detained anyhow regardless of verdict….now that would be Justice Denied! What precedent would that set?
I recommend we continue the military commission process, keep GITMO open, and that the US military and the ACLU continue to be the guardians of our nation’s liberty and defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country…of Americans that is.

Herr Major Williams can rest easy: der Feuhrer Obama has decided that the U.S. Constitution doesn't apply to American citizen's either. Now anyone labelled "terrorist" can simply be executed by the Reich.
Like all fascist fools, Herr Major rants about "liberty" while doing his best to destroy it by mindless service to the State.
Individuals like him are the greatest threat to life and liberty of people everywhere. It's pathetic that these slogan-chanting goons are not themselves interned, for they are the true terrorists.
To hell with the U.S. military and may God have mercy on the souls of its evil minions.

Once again Mr. Miles has made inappropriate comments at this blog. He touts himself as some kind of "christian" but by his language he is the same kind of "christian" as the right wing nuts that are working hard to destroy the U.S. constitution and government.
