TBD on Ning

So Kahleb Sheik Mohammed (God I hope its ok to say the 'M' word...) and his buddies are being tried in NYC for their alleged roles in 9/11. This places a great burden on small businesses in NYC, since areas will be closed for security reasons, shops will be inaccessable. Furthermore, it gives these enemy combatants constitutional rights...which some people have problems with, I dont really understand why, but anyhow. Furthermore, it gives them a world stage to voice their 'difficulties' with us Americans, something many thing goes way to far when it comes to catering to enemy combatants.

On the otherhand, trying these folks in Federal court will show the world that at least part of our justice system is humane (even though failure is not an option, etc, etc.) What are your feelings about this? Do you give a damn? And hell, if there going to tie up the traffic in NYC, cant they at least televise these proceedings? They're going to cost us taxpayers a fortune anyway....?

I believe defending the rule of law and the constitution.

Here is Article 3, Section 2 of the United States Constitution:

The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any State, the Trial shall be at such Place or Places as the Congress may by Law have directed.
Now Red One, calm your little heart down and relax.
Oh--u like my plan better?
OK, Kittycat, I will try to cool down. I served in Vietnam and know what terror is.
Thank You!!!!
Red One, I am sure that if they go to prison, they will be terrorized alright.
Well stated Jacquin
I respect Lindsay Graham and think he is probably one of the best members that has ever served in congress. I do not say that lightly, since I am a democrat and disagree with most things the right want. But my disagreement is usually either because they do not make any sense, have no regard for anyone who disagrees with them in any way, or blindly follow people like Limbaugh and Beck. I do not think Graham is saying that they should not be put on trial. He is disagreeing with the type of trial. In my opinion, it is way past time that these people should have been tried. That is what has caused the US to loose the respect of the rest of the civilized world. No thinking human with any empathy wants to think that it is right to hold and torture prisoners indefinitely. War has changed dramatically, but I do not believe that the rules for human decency have changed. Our biggest problem is that we have held so many people in a state of limbo for so long that the rest of the world now has suspicions that we have become so fearful that we no longer abide by the rule of law. The only way that I see for us to reclaim our position as the moral leader of the world is to make sure that we provide these people a fair trial that is completly transparant. If we think what the rest of the world thinks does not matter, then drag them down to the site of the twin towers and crucify them. Make sure it takes days or weeks of horrific unremitting pain. When you do that you better be sure that you never intend to travel outside your very secure borders.
Now, before you embarrass yourself by beating your heoric chest and ranting about what an uninformed, unpatrotic, unqualified to speak on this subject, left wing wimp I am, you might want to check my qualifications and experience.
