    I was advocating collection of intelligence. That's why you should have read the second sentence prior to posting.

    Actually there is. The American supported and financed IRA was 'defeated' in the sense that they are no longer blowing up Brits. The Royal Army kicking down doors in Belfast did not work, but negotiation did. It was a question of intelligence (and not just the military kind,) and taking the trouble to find out the root causes of the problem. Nobody gets everything they want, but compromises which satisfy both parties are often possible.

    It seems one of the key questions was never asked following the WTC and Pentagon attacks. That question was "Why do people hate us so much they are willing to die to do us harm?"

    Until that question is asked, and satisfactorily answered, we may deploy untold battalions without success.

    He confessed his crime.

    The trial should be fast tracked, he should be sentenced to death, delayed only for as long as he cooperates with interrogators.

    He wanted to die for his cause, I see no reason why he shouldn't die for our cause.

    This is the United States. He should receive the same due process as everyone else.

    He was, by all accounts, recruited, trained, and equipted by al qaeda. This was just one more point obama has been wrong about. We need to get to the organization in yemen that's responsible for this. Thanks to this democratic regime and it's insistance of workfare for lawyers and american constitutional rights for foreign combantants.....we won't do that. It's certain to cost us more american lives.

    That would be intelligence we are not collecting because of this democratic regime's insistance on lawyers for terrorists.

    The two tasks are not mutually exclusive.

    We cannot collect intelligence reports if we provide them with lawyers and constitional privledges.
