Guantanamo detainees are not human beings - US judges

"Because the plaintiffs are aliens and were located outside sovereign United States territory at the time their alleged RFRA claim arose, they do not fall with the definition of 'person,'" the court ruled.

So, people aren't people and torture isn't torture - this slope's getting awfully slippery.  Which presidential candidate(s) do you think would reverse this trend? 

Remember, this is about people (yes, people) who have been detained for years, not even given a fair trial yet (you know, the "innocent until proven guilty" and "right to a speedy trial" parts).
