A thought...

...for neocons who think they represent the principles of the founders, yet claim the right to deny "terrorists" any rights, be they under Geneva, the Constitution, whatever...less rights, in fact, than a stray dog:

    “An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.” -- Thomas Paine
