Contempt In America

I've heard a lot of righteous indignation over the lack of rights of Gitmo prisoners. When you're labeled an "enemy combatant", you're neither a prisoner-of-war or charged with exactly-named crimes. You have no right to a jury trial, no Habeas Corpus, no access to a lawyer, no bail. Kinda like the "crime" called Contempt Of Court. And your ass is sitting indefinitely in the county joint just like an enemy combatant.
