    New York trial for alleged 9/11 mastermind

    Five Guantanamo Bay detainees alleged to have masterminded the September 11 attacks are to be taken to the United States to stand trial in a civilian court in New York, an Obama Administration official said today.

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four alleged accomplices will be brought on to US soil for trial as part of President Obama’s pledge to close down the detention centre in Cuba.

    The Attorney General Eric Holder is expected to officially announce the decision today.

    Mr Obama initially planned to close Guantanamo by January 22 next year but the Administration is no longer expected to meet that deadline

    Interesting, they will be tried under a civilian court, I wonder if evidence obtained through questionable means will be dismissed

    Let the terrorist sympathy begin.

    I mean, he's just in need of therapy, like Hasan in Fort Hood. He's crazy, he's not a terrorist. C'mon.

    It doesn't matter, no evidence will be entered, as soon as they set foot on U.S. soil they will be entitled to full Constitutional protections, their right to a speedy trial has been violated, thus they must all be released on this technicality which is precisely what the Harvard Law graduate boy king wants. These people were just responding to us white oppressors after all.

    This trial will probably last years.

    Why? Their right to a speedy trial was violated. Case closed.

    Can you imagine the backlash if this happens?

    I can foresee a million armed man march on Washington.

    (I realize this is a non-PC post..... I do not sanction the exclusion of women from this action)

    I can't see for the life of me why it wouldn't, due to the fact that once they set foot on U.S. soil they will be afforded full Constitutional protections then it is clear that their right to a speedy trial was in fact violated and thus the indictments must be dismissed.

    What would be interesting is the military's response. How will they feel if these turds were to be released.

    Hopefully someone who knows the laws surrounding this better than me can answer this. Do constitutional rights apply retroactively? Until now, they've been held outside the US, so they didn't have a right to a speedy trial. I would think that as long as the trial takes place soon after they enter the US, then no rights have been violated.
