Yes. Its called a military court.You mean a fair an open trial in the very place where the crime took place?
You mean showing the world we've decided to go back to our basic values?
Yes. Its called a military court.
No you don't. You want to put politics ahead of keeping New York City more safe instead of keeping this guy at Guantanamo and being tried there, again perfectly legal and instead put political pot shots at the past administration and risk more American lives.Yes this is really what the liberals want our country to look like.
I wouldn't be proud of that.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
And all of this is totally justifiable under international and domestic law since neither apply to KSM, the notorious terrorist mastermind that planned 9/11.
He does not deserve a trial.

U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time
Lets see.Hell we just spent 7 billion for 7,000 more Humvees in Afghanistan. We spent $79 million to see if the Moon has water!
Humvees that save lives and help win wars of necessity vs. a trial that is totally unnecessary.
Seeing if the most crucial, life-sustaining element in the universe is on our nearest satellite vs. a trial that is totally unnecessary.
Mmmmmmm, those are some good points you make there...
So, instead of pissing off some snooty Westerners you would rather extend Constitutional due process to the terrorist mastermind that planned 9/11?You may want the World to see us as barbarians, but many of us don't.
Why do Americans constantly feel the need to cater to the feelings of foreign countries? Do you actually think the French or the British or the Canadians give a DAMN about an American's opinion of their country?
This trial will not show the Muslim world how just America is. It will just reinforce the notion that we are a weak populace with no stomach for protracted wars.
Convince the American people that they can't win and they will quit fighting, just like in Vietnam. The Jihadists are learned students of history and brilliant strategists; they're simply counting on the useful idiots in America to win the war for them and Obama is playing right into their hands...
