    Lawyer: 9/11 defendants want platform for views

    For those still claiming a civilian court wont be harmful, NOW do you believe us?

    NEW YORK (AP) - The five men facing trial in the Sept. 11 attacks will plead not guilty so that they can air their criticisms of U.S. foreign policy, the lawyer for one of the defendants said Sunday.

    Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer for accused terrorist Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, said the men would not deny their role in the 2001 attacks but "would explain what happened and why they did it."

    The U.S. Justice Department announced earlier this month that Ali and four other men accused of murdering nearly 3,000 people in the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. will face a civilian federal trial just blocks from the site of the destroyed World Trade Center.

    Ali, also known as Ammar al-Baluchi, is a nephew of professed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

    Mohammed, Ali and the others will explain "their assessment of American foreign policy," Fenstermaker said.

    "Their assessment is negative," he said.


    Anyone still professing civilian courts over military courts need to do two things.


    Defend the cost of bringing them to New York instead of a military trial Its 75 million so far.

    Then defend the access they will get to the press which has now been proven to be what they want.


    Then explain how this isn't harmful

    I still think there is no harm in it. They can air their views, and we can laugh at and condemn them. Words are harmless.

    Really. Words are Harmless

    So how did Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and rest of the murderers get to power? A picture show?

    Are you really this naive?

    Now we get to the heart of the problem.

    Western Countries aren't the only ones with TV or know how to use the internet.

    Islamic Terrorists will USE this to recruit MORE members.

    Here's some reading material on how they do it with the internet alone

    First of all, who is us? The pathetically uniformed rubes that watch Glenn Beck?

    Secondly, they've been prosecuting terrorists in civilian courts for years. The Federal prosecutors have become experts in protecting national security interests while presenting winning cases.

    Thirdly, if they are acquitted (which they won't be) they can still be held as enemy combatants indefinitely.

    No the incredibly niave people who actually believe giving terrorists a platform for their hate and putting it in the #1 target city in the US is actually a good thing.

    Secondly, they've been prosecuting terrorists in civilian courts for years.The Federal prosecutors have become experts in protecting national security interests while presenting winning cases.
    Could you get lamer in that response? Can you name ANY terrorist ever tried that even killed 1/5th the people on US soil that were killed on 9.11? Talk about a pathetic excuse.

    You do realize there are degrees in attacks right? Not all terrorist attacks are as destructive or kill as many people as the largest terrorist attack on us soil in US HISTORY

    Thirdly, if they are acquitted (which they won't be) they can still be held as enemy combatants indefinitely.
    Which completly negates the last pathetic argument of using civilian courts to "show the world" our court system.

    Starting to get it yet?

    Pick up a newspaper before sticking your foot in your mouth.
    Wow are you uninformed.

    All you have proven is that you excel in epic failure in proving a civilian court is better than a military court.

    Well done genius.

    Write back when you actually can justify the cost and show trial of doing it in civilian court vs military.

    So you think they deserve a platform to launch anti-American propaganda? Why?

    No it's anyone who thinks that these people shouldn't be handed a platform from which to launch anti-American propaganda.
