US Can Hold “Enemy Combatants” Indefinately

This should drive Lefty groups like the ACLU and the Demorats insane: (from Yahoo News)

US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said the US government could "indefinitely" hold foreign 'enemy combatants' at sites like the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

"We can detain any combatants for the duration of the hostilities," said Gonzales, speaking to the Senate Armed Services Committee.

"If we choose to try them, that's great. If we don't choose to try them, we can continue to hold them," he said.

That is what the Geneva Conventions say. POW's and enemy combatants can be held for the duration of the war. They do not have to be tried.

Personally, I have never understood why the Leftards have a problem with holding all those terrorists and Taliban at G'itmo, considering they were caught in Afghanistan, during a war the Left supposedly approved of.
