24. Question: Are the US citizens on a foreign "battlefield" or in the US?

For me, it's a question of time and priorities. If the suspected terrorists are in the US, then they should definitely get a trial and due process.

If the "terrorists" just happen to be with a militant group they've joined in Syria or something, then I'm less concerned (neutral) about how things are handled. In other words, they aren't my top priority when it comes to figuring out the top issues affecting our lives.

Once we address the hundreds/thousands of more pressing domestic issues, then we can address how American-born AlQaida members are treated once captured.
