The trial of
the alleged masterminds of 9/11, which began last week at the U.S.
Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will address some of the most
profound issues of our era. Are natural rights truly inalienable,
as Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, or
can the government take them away from those it hates or fears?
Does the Constitution protect the rights of all persons who come
in contact with the government, or does it protect only certain
Americans, as the government argues? Can the government deny a person
due process by changing the rules retroactively, or is the Constitution's
guarantee of due process to all persons truly a guarantee?
