We wouldn't have to answer this question if we weren't legitimizing terror through unfair wars that create people accustomed to suffering and warfare as a norm, and who are living lives filled with terror because of us. This is not the way of Americans and it must stop.

If they are foreign nationals and trial is brought in the United States or a US territory, then they should be given the same rights to a fair trial, innocent until proven guilty. They should not be considered as US citizens, though. They are foreign nationals and should be privy to the laws that govern foreign nationals within the US and our territories.

@8LY6DLM from New Jersey answered…2yrs

If they are a suspect than, they should be tested fairly but if they are a known terrorist than they should be locked up with no trial.

@4SQWJ65from Florida  answered…2yrs

Is this seriously in consideration? They honestly shouldn't even be considered people. Of course they're not getting constitutional rights.

 @Lola3NPB  from California commented…2yrs

People who support giving them rights claim terrorists should be charged and tried by a jury (just like everyone else.)

The alternative would be to execute or jail them without due process.

USA is a major sponsor of terrorism. We should quit meddling in other nations.

@4Q7X98Cfrom Indiana  answered…2yrs

I don't think they should be given the right to a fair trial in federal courts but they should still be treated humanly.

@4RW83Q9from New Jersey  answered…2yrs

No, they are not U.S. citizens and do not have constitutional rights but all international treaties should be followed.

Having interrogated four dozen, and reviewed the cases of several hundred more, I find the jihadi's more like patriots than criminals. The Koran specifies how society is to be organized, and while I think it's foolish, our enemies do not. I encourage holding these men as POW's, until the end of hostilities or we use them as trading stock, or they are no longer an asset to the enemy

Only if they are constantly monitored and are actively trying to be better as a good person and not doing anything bad.

@98WH8BBLibertarian from Pennsylvania answered…13hrs

Since they are not U.S. citizens, I think they should not, but I do agree they should have a fair trial.

@98WGJ9P from Indiana answered…14hrs

No they are are U.S. citizens do not have constitutional rights, they should be tried in military tribunals and they should be subject to torture.

@98WFP7N from Pennsylvania answered…14hrs

Yes, only if they're not a threatening to the country and civilians.

@98W8N5W from Connecticut answered…1 day

If incarcerated foreign terrorists should be given stereotypical rights as prisoners, however, the US must do what it must do to protect foreign policy and the safety of citizens if that cannot be done.

@98W8HJH from California answered…1 day

If they are suspected it is innocent until proven guilty. But if it is confirmed they deserve nothing.

@98W4LRK from North Carolina answered…1 day

No, because they aren't U.S. citizens; however, they should not be subjected to torture methods.

@98W2GDP from Texas answered…1 day

If they have changed their ways of life from violent to peaceful then yes, if not then no.

@98W4F2B from Utah answered…1 day

@98W43K7 from Wisconsin answered…1 day

@98VZX7J from California answered…1 day

Yes, because this is America and people deserve unalienable rights.

@98VZGKQ from Indiana answered…1 day

No, they are not citizens but they should be held accountable by civil law unless they have already committed an act of Terrorism against the US or any other NATO member.

@98VVPCK from Iowa answered…2 days

Yes, depending on what they did. So if they did something bad enough no.

@98VT4XF from Utah answered…2 days
