    What do you expect? You give full civil rights to terrorist non-citizens and then are shocked that they use these rights?

    The problem is not the judge. If anything, he may be passively aggressively making a point. The point being that terrorists should not be tried in American courts of law.

    They should be accorded Geneva convention rights at best.. Under those rules they could be summarily executed for being enemy combatants out of uniform. That is how I would propose we empty Guantanamo.
