    You want to destroy the enemy's heroes and cost the enemy morale, put them in a 24/7 INTERNET zoo.
    Interesting approach, maybe a good answer.
    We must do to the convicted, and in many cases, even the suspected terrorist, the very last thing they want done to themselves.
    Its so easy to be hateful and vengeful with these terrorists..
    I'm thinking life in a prison cell, no contact, no visitors, no audio, no video, no visual, nothing .

Perhaps not as serious a crime as succeeding but not something we just shrug our shoulders and let them walk away from either.
    Its not a case of competency at all. Thanks goodness most of us have a conscience which will generally deter any murder attempt.
    The terrorist has no conscience and should suffer accordingly.

    The Conspiracy itself is a separate crime.

So, under this law, a 'conspiracy' is an agreement or a kind of 'partnership' in criminal purposes in which each member becomes the agent or partner of every other member.

    I love the conspiracy laws!!

    I actually agree with Devil505 on something. Heaven forbid!

    Yes they should be as long as they receive a fair trial be it military tribunal or civilian.

    Last post on this point as I'm .....but what you describe is already a crime as linked to above. The crime of Conspiracy.

    CONSPIRACY - 18 U.S.C. 371 makes it a separate Federal crime or offense for anyone to conspire or agree with someone else to do something which, if actually carried out, would amount to another Federal crime or offense.

    I favor the death penalty, if convicted.

    Thoughts?
    Seeing i oppose the death penalty and the use of it the simple answer would be No. I do not think they should be executed.

    And call me touchy but i do not want someone put to death for something they haven't even done yet

    I don't support the death penalty. Especially in cases where the suspect hasn't killed anyone to begin with..
