Answer the following discussion.
Most of us wake up everyday not even thinking about terrorism.
A). Since September 11th, 2001 there has been a debate about how to handle those suspected or charged with terrorism.
First, how is terrorism defined? Should we treat terrorists as a criminal and send them through the United States legal system? Or should we label them as an “enemy combatant” and send them to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba? If terrorists are labeled “enemy combatants” they may not be given Constitutional rights, is there a constitutional problem here? (Minimum of 150 words)
B). ISIS has been in the news for the past few years, what is ISIS? How powerful is ISIS today? What are their goals? How should the United States and other countries fight this threat?(minimum of 150 words)
