The paper discusses how the War on Terror has raised a number of issues vis-a-vis how Americans should treat suspected terrorists. The paper explains that many believe that alleged terrorists should be subject to the procedural and evidentiary laws of the American civilian criminal justice system. On the other hand, some believe that alleged terrorists should be tried before military tribunals rather than before civilian courts. Finally, there is undoubtedly a third group which would like to see a "mix" of the two approaches when dealing with alleged terrorists. This paper believes that the second of the three prospective approaches outlined above is the one that America should follow during this time of crisis, even if terrorists are not "armed combatants" as the term is generally understood under international law.
