I wonder who qualifies for or what calculus is used to determine who is entitled to civil rights and who is not?

Certainly, the label “terrorist” is the great borax of civil liberty removal because obviously you become sub human once said label is applied.   Witness the reluctance in the US, that great city shining on the hill we all aspire to, to shut down the services of Guantanamo Bay where people are being held without due process.   Liberal Viewer from you tube adds more light to the subject using, of course, the Daily Show to bring the issue into sharp relief.  It is disquieting to see the demure acquiescence of the major news media in the land of the free, and it must be a comedy satire show that sounds the clarion call on such important issues.
