    Obama revives terror tribunals, dismaying liberals

    Reinstating tribunals after he lambasted them. I think Obama may actually grow up some now that he is president and has found out his pie in the sky bullshit as a candidate does not WORK.

    Just wish he would wake up on the amount of debt he is creating for us.

    Obviously the government is quite sure they have other evidence other than what was used during coarsion. These guys are NOT American citizens and according to the Geneva Convention, they do NOT deserve a trial. That was, until 2006 when the Supreme Court ruled they do.

    I don't agree with it.

    I also don't think they should be in their own prison. I think we should put them in some of the bad ass maximum security prisons in New Mexico or Texas. Let them get anal rapings daily. I have no problem with that.

    Again, these people were not NOT members of the army of a foreign country. They are illegal combatants. They do NOT deserve the right to a fair trial.

    Do you know what the point of a fair trial is? It's not just some ritual we go through where you get a random chance to avoid punishment.

    The point of a fair trial is to determine guilt.

    If these people are guilty, then a fair trial should demonstrate that.

    If there is any person to which justice does not apply, then it effectively applies to no one.

    Dear Pyrite,
    I was found innocent of murder in a "fair" trial.

    Sincerely,

    O.J. Simpson.
