Rights for Terrorists?

Yeah, it seems the RINO's in the Senate are demanding rights for terrorists-

USA Today

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John Warner, R-Va., said Wednesday his panel will consider legislation to provide more legal rights for detainees than the White House proposal. He and his allies contend that denying those rights will put U.S. troops at risk if they are captured overseas and diminish the nation's moral authority....

The senator's decision to go forward puts the president at odds with key members of his party. They are Warner, a former Navy secretary; Graham, a military lawyer and Air Force reservist; and Sen. John McCain, an ex-naval aviator who spent nearly six years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Why am I not surprised that these three are playing games with our national security?

The three "problem areas," Graham said, are proposals to deny defendants' access to classified information, a proposal that would permit the use of evidence obtained through coercion or other methods, and setting rules for CIA interrogations consistent with international law.

Apparently, the "genius" Senator Graham wants to hand over this country's classified documents to the terrorists.

The debate is dividing Republicans. "The American people are not going to provide terrorists with the same kinds of access to justice that American citizens are provided," Boehner said.

You tell 'em Boehner! My guess is that more conservatives are with Boehner on this one.
