You got to understand the President's point

So the NYT is breaking the following story:
Hours after Mr. Bush huddled with House Republicans, he suffered a defeat on the other side of the Capitol, as the Senate Armed Services Committee endorsed legislation that would give suspected terrorists more legal protections than the president desires.

Now, come on. I understand that the Times and Congress want to give some constitutional protection to detainees, but it does seem rather extreme to suggest that the alleged terrorists should enjoy more rights than those enjoyed by the President. I mean, even if Bush is a very bad man who steals from the poor to feed the rich, all the time snacking on the oil he so brilliantly purchased with blood - even so, at least he's an American citizen.
