Stan Jones on Homeland Security
Under Patriot Act 1 & 2, if you are suspected of being an enemy combatant, you can be tried in secret by a military tribunal. You cannot see the evidence against you, have no right to a jury, and cannot appeal. The president also has authority to impose martial law and suspend habeus corpus, where you can be jailed for life without a trial and without a lawyer.
All of this is terrorism of the worst kind. We the people no longer have the protection of Bill of Rights. This is no longer the America I know. You cannot save America by destroying America. You cannot no longer rely on Democrats or Republicans to preserve your rights
BURNS: Pres. Bush took an oath to protect this country. Let's talk about the Patriot Act. You have not given up one freedom, not ONE freedom that you didn't have before, unless you're a terrorist, or a suspected terrorist, or affiliated with the Mafia, or affiliated with drug kingpins. If you repeal the Patriot Act, the wall goes back up between the FBI and the CIA and the DIA, Defense Intelligence, and they cannot connect the dots. And the Meth Control Act is within the Patriot Act. There are consequences; it is a tool to protect this country.
A: No. The constitution allows only defensive use of our military, not pre-emptive strikes. Terrorists must be fought with good intelligence and lawful enforcement of our laws-- not with B-2's, Carriers, Tanks, etc.
