Glad to help you out there.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I'm opposed to the trials because I can look at the alternatives and make a reasoned decision.
On the one hand we have a sham civilian trial that will cost hundreds of millions of dollars, cause substantial congestion and disruption in the heart of the financial district, take several years, risk the disclosure of sensitive information, and do a disservice to the principles of our civilian judicial system.
On the other hand we have a military tribunal that will cost maybe a million dollars, cause no disruption, be resolved relatively quickly, limit the risk of disclosure, and protect the integrity of our civilian judicial system.
Once you drop the childish rhetoric and look at the reality of the situation, it's pretty obvious which approach is better.
I've pointed out the dishonesty in this statement several times, and yet you keep on reciting it as if it's true. While the vast majority of terrorists who have been tried to completion may have gone through the civilian system, that says nothing about those who are either 1) currently in the military process or 2) currently being detained indefinitely. Perhaps even more importantly, it says nothing about the capabilities of the civilian system, since there is a fairly obvious selection bias.I mean, seriously. We've done it before, in fact we've done it for 99% of terrorists.
Imagine that you're in charge of prosecuting terrorists, and that we've captured 1,000 of them. You know of that 1,000, there are 300 who are relatively minor figures and for whom the evidence is admissible and overwhelming, there are another 300 for whom the evidence is not admissible, but whom you don't want to release, and another 400 for whom you haven't decided what to do yet. Imagine that you process the first 300 through the civilian court with little trouble, but decide to hold off on the other 700.
Now, using your flawed logic, you would point out that 100% of the terrorists who have been prosecuted have gone through the civilian system and thus conclude that all terrorists can/should go through the civilian system. That's obviously an unwarranted assumption.
The reality of the situation is that we've funneled the easy cases through the civilian system while punting on the hard cases. It's absolutely foolish to claim that this is proof that the hard cases can be handled the same way.
Not that it really matters as to the legality, but this is demonstrably false.You wish. Most people want the civilian trials.

By a 59% to 35% margin, voters prefer that Mohammed and his cohorts face justice from military tribunals instead of in federal courts.
AFP: Suspected 9/11 bomber should face military trial: pollAlmost two-thirds of Americans disagree with the decision by President Barack Obama's administration to try the suspected 9/11 mastermind in a civilian court, a poll showed Monday.
Sixty-four percent of those surveyed said Khalid Sheikh Mohammed should be tried in a military court, while only 34 percent agreed with Obama that the civilian judicial system was the best way forward, the CNN poll said.
And by "very new," you mean literally hundreds of years old, right?By switching to the untried and very new military tribunal we will be rolling the dice as to how this will effect us.
Again, if you don't know what you're talking about, don't.
For someone who keeps on telling others to educate themselves, you don't seem to understand much about this topic.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
