The Constitution is not a suicide pact.

Violate these suckers' rights, round them up and stick 'em on Guantanamo 'til they rot.

This is a copy of an E-Mail I sent after the initial incident. I know that there were some angeles I hadn't considered when I sent it, but it may have been similar to what the terrorists were planning (things in italics or strikes have been added since the original E-Mail was sent, or they are clarifications):

"The plan by the Islamic Facists (I/F) appears to have been well thought out and was insidious in so many way. It wasn't just the people on board the planes who were endangered, it was citizens on the ground, and passengers on others planes as well. Consider this scenario:

"The plan was for detonations one hour apart. Suppose that there were twelve planes targeted, but they were divided into groups of four, each group leaving approximately an hour from each other.

As the first group of four approached an airport they detonated would detonate, either clogging up a runway, or raining fire and debris down on populated areas.

The air traffic controllers would probably stop incoming planes until something could be figured out, and planes would stack up.

If they were diverted like on 9/11, maybe more would detonate, clogging up the diverted runways of the other airports they were diverted to. The air traffic controllers would be in a real trap. Then, they would have to keep planes orbiting to save lives on the ground, thus using up fuel of orbiting planes, or they would have to let planes land and take the chance that more wouldn't blow up. Also, they wouldn't know if places on land like New York, Washington DC or the Pentagon were being targeted.

The final result might have been that hundreds of planes may have been forced to ditch in the waters or some may have simply run out of fuel, or some might have been shot down by the military.

In any event, however it was planned, it had the potential to be worse in terms of lives and chaos than 9/11."

I'm trying real hard to make sense of this.They (the terrorists) have a constitutional right to destroy us but the same constitution doesn't give us the right to protect ourselves?
Vote dem and it'll all come clear.

Amen. Terrorism is the greatest threat our country has ever faced. These guys are much worse than the Communists. We need to round 'em up, gather as much info as we can on each one, put 'em in front of a tribunal, and let them rat each other out. Get confessions so we can put 'em all in front of a 21-gun salute.

However (and this is a big however) — as a patriot, historian, and teacher, I must disagree with your assertion that the Constitution is not a suicide pact.

I don't know about you, but I'm an American, and my laws and values were created and upheld by the Constitution. Our Constitution is a suicide pact — if not for you, then for the nation as we know it. We can add rights to it until we're blue in the face... but as soon as we start taking rights out of the Constitution, we might as well just bring the mullahs in. My $.02...

"Violate these suckers' rights, "- Rights? What rights? Human rights are for humans.
