Guantanamo

The typical conservative retort to those who raise concerns about the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo is some variant of: "Terrorists don't have civil liberties." My response to this is usually to point out that the "terrorist" status of the detainees is something we are asked to take the Bush administration's word for, a proposition which any sane person would dismiss outright.

But as Lindsay points out, even by the administration's own account of the offenses that landed the detainees at Gitmo, it is inaccurate to refer to many of them as terrorists.

Most of them are, however, Muslims, so I guess it's OK.
