    Is this another "Not meant as a factual statement" statement, or does Mitch McConnell truly hate the Constitution?

    They shouldn't be tried in a normal court, they should be tried in a tribunal.

    That's not even the point he's making. He's essentially saying that trials aren't necessary when someone is believed to be guilty (by him apparently). Also, you clearly can't trust a jury of one's peers to make the right decision because average joes are too stupid. Apparently he's got that part right because someone keeps voting for this jackass.

    Linking the Casey Anthony trial to terrorists is just sensationalist bullshit. What an idiot.

    Try this quote on for size

    And where does the Bill of Rights say it does not apply to foreigners?

    14th Amendment

    Foreign enemy combatants aren't subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. It's supposed to be hard to gain a conviction in U.S. courts, as designed by the Constitution. That's the point he's making.

    The Bill of Rights doesn't apply to enemy combatants (or foreign terrorists). That's why we have treaties. When they don't agree to treaties, then nothing applies to them. They shouldn't be tried in civilian courts.

    That said, his comparison is fucking moronic.

    Good to know. So we can randomly arrest foreign tourists, hold them against their will, and subject them to trial without representation? Or heck, let's just start shooting them in the head while they walk down the street since we can now deprive them of life, liberty and pursuing happiness. Fuck anyone who isn't from here. Constitutional protections = not yours!

    Taken in the correct context, it makes absolute sense. Nowhere did he say that Casey Anthony was guilty. He said that it's hard to get a conviction in U.S. courts, which is absolutely true. He also said that foreigners don't have the same protections, which is also true. I can only imagine what the people who get bent out of shape over this shit would have done in 1945 while we were fire bombing Dresden. Demand a trial for every single person there?

    No, that's not what he's saying. He's saying exactly what Psychopath said he was saying.

    The connection is very obvious: Obama wants to try terrorists in the same exact system and the same exact way Casey Anthony was tried.

    What exactly are you saying will be so different when the defendant in a similar Court, getting tried by the same exact rules is a terrorist, that we can't look at the Casey Anthony trial to predict how it's gonna go? (and maybe think about whether it's really a good idea to do it that way, or if we should realize we're at war and wars cannot be fought the same way we fight common criminals)

    You asked a question, he answered it, and now you're trying to stuff words in his mouth about shooting innocent tourists? That's pretty fucking weak. Sometimes it's just ok to admit that you didn't know something and move on.

    The likelihood of an innocent tourist being sent to Guantanamo is probably about the same as an innocent man being convicted after a jury trial. Can it happen? Sure, but nobody sets out to do it. If you want the protections and rights given to citizens, become a citizen. If you don't, you need to understand what rights you'll have if you choose to visit, or in the case of these scumbags - try to kill us. When I go to a foreign country I'm perfectly aware that my rights are not the same as they are here.

    Im going to chalk that up to the "Ill believe it when I see it" column. There is no reason a foreign citizen should be tried in a criminal court and like it was said before they should be tried in front of a tribunal. The connection is just intended to throw McConnell's name around and stir the media bullshit.

    Quality contribution there, Einstein.

    I don't even like McConnell. But when someone's right, they're right.

    That's because certain rights are inalienable. A fact which escapes Mr. McConnell and most of the GOP.
