Where is the Argument?

Can anyone articulate a plausible argument for stripping alleged terrorists of the procedural right to challenge their status? Or, put another way, how we can protect any innocent accused without it? Because the best I've seen is that we'd have to Mirandize battlefield combatants, and that's ridiculous.

You might want to check out the Guantanamo Teach-In hosted by Seton Hall Law today. There are about 200 schools participating, and will discuss what it means to have a fair trial as an enemy combatant and "the failure of the Government even to bring charges against the vast majority of the present detainees." Here's the link: http://law.shu.edu/guantanamoteachin/guantanamo.htm

Yoo said on NPR today that it would be 'too expensive' to grant everyone their full rights. I'm going to see him debate (and hopefully get eviscerated by) my Civ Pro pro this afternoon; I'll report back here :)
