Reference: Bill of Rights (Remember: this was written to protect U.S. citizens)

Since our government has now afforded enemy combatant, Abdulmutallab, the non-citizen underwear bomber, with the same rights as American citizens, one wonders whether the Department of Justice's very timely issuance of a memorandum, Guidance for Prosecutors Regarding Criminal Discovery, will help the defendant or American citizens more. Perhaps a conservative legal scholar will offer us an opinion on the content of this memorandum.

The left's worldview!

So, at what point will our leadership and the media ask the ultimate question, "Are we there yet?"
