There should be a clear distinction when treating citizens and noncitizens. Whether the detainee is a citizen or not, their type of treatment should be based on how threatening they are towards the U.S. The point of capturing individuals in places like Guantanamo Bay is to reduce the number of threatening persons from attacking our nation. Their treatment should be handled as such.
There is a big responsibility that comes with these decisions. I do not believe the President is or should ever be the sole individual responsible for these decisions. By gaining the opinions of those in the Supreme Court and the decision board at Guantanamo, a more thorough and intellectual decision will come to fruition.
