Terror SuspectOur political powerhouse has handed the war-mongering president more powers?! Are they out of their minds?

Okay, I hear the arguments: The guys that are fighting us wouldn’t think twice about what they would do to us – put our people on tape, torture and kill.

But it is time we wake up and realize that we should be holding ourselves to a higher standard. How do we want our people to be treated? We will only be treated as well as we treat others. It’s the catch-22.

The terrorist suspects we hold in prisons have rights, whether we like it or not. If the fighting is over then they should be released, if there is nothing to prosecute them with, based on international law. Torture of any kind should not be an option.

Prisoners of war should be treated the way we would expect our own to be treated, and no less.
