Antonin Scalia "Not Fit" for US Supreme Court!
28 Mar 2006
Justice Scalia "pre-judges" and finds Gitmo inmates "Guilty" with no examination of the facts let alone looking at any verifiable evidence!
Antonin Scalia demonstrated his incompotence and ineligibility to be a US Supreme Court Justice by pre-judging and "finding the Guantanamo Bay inmates "Guilty" without any trial or examination of the evidence against them,what-soever!

The facts that hundreds of Guantanamo Bay prisoners have now been released after spending years there illegally incarcerated,without any criminal charges,is enough to disprove any of Scalia's half-baked,right wing contentions that any of these prisoners were rightfully arrested or imprisoned in the first place! Antonin Scalia only proves that he's incompotent and not fit to be a judge in any type of democratic based court!

(AP) Scalia Speaks On Issue Coming Before Supreme Court: "I'm Not About To Give This Man Who Was Captured In A War A Full Jury Trial"...

The Supreme Court this week will hear arguments in a big case: whether to allow the Bush administration to try Guantánamo detainees in special military tribunals with limited rights for the accused. But Justice Antonin Scalia has already spoken his mind about some of the issues in the matter. During an unpublicized March 8 talk at the University of Freiberg in Switzerland, Scalia dismissed the idea that the detainees have rights under the U.S. Constitution or international conventions, adding he was "astounded" at the "hypocritical" reaction in Europe to Gitmo. "War is war, and it has never been the case that when you captured a combatant you have to give them a jury trial in your civil courts," he says on a tape of the talk reviewed by NEWSWEEK. "Give me a break."

Challenged by one audience member about whether the Gitmo detainees don't have protections under the Geneva or human-rights conventions, Scalia shot back: "If he was captured by my army on a battlefield, that is where he belongs. I had a son on that battlefield and they were shooting at my son and I'm not about to give this man who was captured in a war a full jury trial. I mean it's crazy." Scalia was apparently referring to his son Matthew, who served with the U.S. Army in Iraq. Scalia did say, though, that he was concerned "there may be no end to this war."

This isn't news. This is an opinion.

Flip you are so lame you have to come on here and pretend to be me. You could never be me.
The "Evidence" finds Scalia unfit to judge!

No Brad it isn't an "opinion" its a logical conclusion that Scalia is unfit to be a judge,based on his public record and the documented evidence therein!
