Rampant Softheadedness 

A couple days ago, Judge Joyce Hens Green ruled that foreign terror suspects held in Guantanamo can challenge their confinement in U.S. courts and that the military tribunals set up to review their status for Geneva Convention purposes are unconstitutional.

Judge Green, who was appointed to the Federal bench by Jimmy Carter, appears to be one of those people who thinks that the Constitution of the United States is a suicide pact.

The lack of common sense in some people is just astounding. I hope it doesn't go so far as to require a constitutional amendment that reads something like, "The rights granted by this Constitution to the people shall apply only to Citizens of the United States, and to those non-Citizens who are lawfully present in the United States."
