    Too bad, but the righties had ample opportunity to try these guys while they still controlled the White House. But no, they were more interested in torture and indefinite detention.

    They had their chance, but blew it.

    We left it so Barry would have one more thing to stumble and fall over.

    You're welcome.

    Or......perhaps they stopped numerous terrorist attempts in the process. You and I will never know.

    Trying them in Manhattan next to their "work" might be the dumbest governmental decision in known history. Makes you wonder where their true allegiances lie, because no mildly educated adult could blunder this so badly.

    Every day, a click to the right occurs concerning Gitmo.

    The issues are obvious 1) Security 2) Cost 3) Facilitation and Transportation 4) Communication, meaning every level of government...Federal, State, and Local must coordinate. Every level of government has it's own security, cost, communication, and facilitation concerns. The endeavor becomes colossal and overwhelming, the good Mayor of New York realizing that the day the decision was made no doubt.

    May I ask a question, Barack?

    Which one of the concerns above doesn't Gitmo provide the perfect solution?

    Every day...more and more will come to realize what a stroke of genius Gitmo truly is.

    I agree on military tribunals. My only stipulation would be that they are open for public review. And not just for Americans, but for the world. I don't mean cameras inside or anything like that. But that all transcripts are available and that media outlets from around have some access to the proceedings before, during, and after.

    Just heard on the news that one of the new options they are now looking at is a military tribunal at Gitmo.

    KSM and company should take up residence with Obama.

    Thank god. My office is about 3/4 mile from the courthouse, and the train I take goes right past it, so I was really, really, really not looking forward to dealing with this bull****.

    Send his ass to Governor's Island at a minimum, or even better, someplace out of the metro area.

    Who cares! I don't care where they get tried, just as long as there's a trial.

    That's right, give him a fair trail before shooting him.
