    Well now we know how it's gonna go. I say leave them all at Gitmo and try them by military tribunal.

    Yesterday Ahmed Gailani – an al-Qaeda terrorist who murdered 224 people, including a dozen Americans, in Tanzania and Kenya - skipped out of a New York courtroom with nothing but property-damage charges sticking to him. He faces a minimum sentence of 20 years, which does not mean he will be in prison until 2030. The Obama Department of Justice is “pleased” with this outcome.

    Why? Because of minor technicalities, almost all evidence against this guy had to be thrown out. Evidence that the military would have allowed.

    Trying these guys in a civil court is a really bad idea.

    Minimum sentence of 20 years. Minimum.

    Not very optimistic.

    Yup. He'll be eligible for his first parole hearing in what - 2 years? 4 years?

    Evidence couldn't be introduced because it was gained through torture. The same would hold true in a military court. What a shame Bush was so anxious to torture.
