    They only hold up bills that have the potential for real positive change for Americans.

    And what will We The People do if we’re picked up by a black van and jailed? “Excuse me I’d like my lawyer and speedy trail! ….Hello?”

    So, if I am reading this right, this bill will afford all of our legal rights to everybody no matter who they are, where they are, or what they have been accused of. Would this include Benladen? Personally I would much rather be held in a U.S. military prison, than one in Iran.

    Habeas Corpus only means proof before incarceration. People who are guilty, like bin Laden would go to court and be executed. The only people Habeas Corpus would benefit are people locked up off the street who could then go home. Passing this bill will take away a powerful tool of persuasion from the terrorists on getting suicide bombers. We also won’t have to pay for innocent people’s prison time. We have nothing to lose.

    Non US citizens have never and should never get any Constitutional rights.

    In Nazi Germany non-Germans got no rights. Same in Stalin Russia.
