What is a terrorist? This is a very important question. After October 17, 2006 (that's today), anyone that is considered a terrorist has no rights. This means that we should be told what determines a terrorist. If I write articles criticizing the administration, am I considered a terrorist? If someone puts a few sticks of dynamite and a timer in my Jeep in the middle of the night, and FBI agents, working on a "hot tip" search it at 3AM, will I be taken away, never to be heard from again? Under the present law the President will sign today it could happen. They wouldn't have to tell me the charge against me, and they wouldn't have to show me the evidence they have against me, and they could lock me up for as long as they want. If you never read anything I write again, maybe I'm just gone.
