Was the Bill of Rights intended to apply to everyone, or just Americans? Don't Leftist revisionist historians go on about how it just applied to white males? And they have a point. I think it's difficult for us 21st Century folks to try to get into the heads of 18th Century people, because we can see their omissions and contradictions much more easily than they could have. And the same will be true for our descendants, who will no doubt shake their heads in mixed pity and disgust over our shortcomings. With respect to the problem of dealing with Muslim terrorists, even the kindest and wisest person on earth would have problems sorting out the truly guilty from the rest, and the bunch in Washington are a long way from that description.
