This seems so obvious

Another challenge to the US policy of holding 'Enemy Combatants' indefinately without due process.

But this one should be remarkably clear, and we should be up in arms about the obscene abuse of power here.

They caught this guy in an airport, not on a battlefield. He is accused of planning crimes. Yet it's OK to just lock him up without a trial (or for a while, a lawyer)?!?!? Just because the government says so?

If we let them do this, political adversaries (like me) are not far behind.

It's a scary time. And this is exactly what the terrorists want.
