    everyone there "might be" involved in terrorism.

    this is the logic that leads to the "kill em all" solutions

    I suggest that you and the ACLU rush right over there and do everything you can to defend these poor people.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Ah. See, we (as in military personnel) aren't authorized to read the Wikileaks stuff. It's still classified.

    No, it actually prevents a "kill 'em all" solution. You round up all of the potential terrorists. You screen them and release the ones who aren't. What's left are... wait for it... terrorists. And, nobody gets killed that way, especially the potential victims of the terrorists.

    Remember, the Bill of Rights doesn't extend past the borders of the US.

    Nor does it apply in War zones or to our enemies during a war.
