We wouldn't have to answer this question if we weren't legitimizing terror through unfair wars that create people accustomed to suffering and warfare as a norm, and who are living lives filled with terror because of us. This is not the way of Americans and it must stop.

Is this seriously in consideration? They honestly shouldn't even be considered people. Of course they're not getting constitutional rights.

@Lola3NPBAmerican Solidarity from California commented…3wks

People who support giving them rights claim terrorists should be charged and tried by a jury (just like everyone else.)


The alternative would be to execute or jail them without due process.

Yes. The Constitution does not mention "citizens," only "people."

I don't think they should be given the right to a fair trial in federal courts but they should still be treated humanly.

@5SX94RBLibertarianfrom New Jersey  answered…1mo

No, they are not U.S. citizens and do not have constitutional rights but all international treaties should be followed.

If they are foreign nationals and trial is brought in the United States or a US territory, then they should be given the same rights to a fair trial, innocent until proven guilty. They should not be considered as US citizens, though. They are foreign nationals and should be privy to the laws that govern foreign nationals within the US and our territories.

Having interrogated four dozen, and reviewed the cases of several hundred more, I find the jihadi's more like patriots than criminals. The Koran specifies how society is to be organized, and while I think it's foolish, our enemies do not. I encourage holding these men as POW's, until the end of hostilities or we use them as trading stock, or they are no longer an asset to the enemy

@9PMBNY4Women’s Equality from Utah answered…1mo

They should have their basic human rights but they should not have our American rights.

@9PLVZDZLibertarian from New York answered…1mo

They should be questioned and then if fine should be considered a U.S citizen

I know we have the Geneva Conventions.... other than that, I am not that educated on this issue, however, they are not US citizens so I believe the UN should have some sort of world standard for treatment.

Fair trial if there isn’t undeniable proof of terrorist connections.

@9PDY4GRWomen’s Equality from Arizona answered…1mo

If they are a danger to our country, then they should only be given basic human rights. Any other specialized rights for the US should only be given to US Citizens and some to a certain extent if the person is not a danger.

@9PCWG6NPeace and Freedom from Indiana answered…1mo

They should have a just trial and if they are found to be terrorist they shouldn't be torched for they are still people.

@9PCPTTMProgressive from Indiana answered…1mo

they should be judged fairly, but can choose whether they want to be given those rghts, as they are not citizens of the us and may not want to receive our judging systems ruling.

@9PCDJYRPeace and Freedom from Michigan answered…1mo

yes, i believe they should at least get a fair trial just like one would in the U.S.

@9PC9XBRPeace and Freedom from California answered…1mo

If suspected of terrorism then look more into it if they are innocent the give them rights.

@9PC7Q7CWomen’s Equality from Texas answered…1mo

Yes but they should serve time in prison and when they serve their time, they should get constitutional rights and a green card.
