Rep. Bill Young (R - FL) speaking in objection to Pres. Obama's closing the Guantanamo Bay detention facility:

"[O]nce they become present in the United States, what is their legal status? What is their constitutional status? I worry about that, because I don't want them to have the same constitutional rights that you and I have. They're our enemy"

Thomas Paine:

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself"

Sri Chinmoy:
"Who is man's enemy? How many enemies are there? Only one, and that enemy is man's own unlit lower self"
