Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court is completely unacceptable.  Alien combatants should not be allowed to have access to American courts forcing our nation’s hardworking taxpayers to pay their legal costs. These terrorists have openly condemned America and the values we stand for, they should not have the privilege to use our rights. This ruling threatens Americans’ freedom and sets a very bad precedent for future rulings with violent terrorists. 

I believe that Justice Scalia hits the nail on the head when he said, "The game of bait-and-switch that today’s opinion plays upon the Nation’s Commander in Chief will make the war harder on us. It will almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed. That consequence would be tolerable if necessary to preserve a time-honored legal principle vital to our constitutional Republic."
