Courting disaster

Mark Fiore’s character Knuckles has a take on the US Supreme Court decision about habeas corpus for non-US citizens who have been detained after being encountered by US forces during military or para-military action in other countries. Although I understand that there is difference between soldiers captured during military operations and ordinary citizens of other countries, I wonder how citizens of the US would respond if commandos from other countries came to the US and took people away to a far-away place and put them on trial after extracting confessions.
