No Indefinite Detention without Trial

I am not sure why it has taken me so long to write about this. But it is better late than never.

What the US government has been doing in the “War on Terror” keeps reminding me of what the French did to my mother’s family. And there seems to be no end to it.

Indefinite detention without trial is a universal problem in a lawless world. If America prides herself as a nation of laws, indefinite detention without trial should not be allowed at all, no matter whether it is done to US citizens, legal residents, undocumented immigrants, foreigners, “terrorists”, or enemy combatants.

I don’t know how many laws the US government has broken in the “War on Terror”. And not many voters are concerned with it. I think for the US to be a real nation of laws, the basic in International laws and the US Constitution has to be taught in middle school and high school.
