    Well, the first civilian trial of an Al Qaeda affiliate suspect in the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Nairobi, Tanzania and Kenya is over. And out of 280 charges, Mr. Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, 36, was found guilty of one. Conspiracy to destroy government property and buildings.

    Outrageous, you say? Well, he's in for 20 years to life.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/18/nyregion/18ghailani.html

    Now I know that emotions run high regarding all things related to Al Qaeda, but keep this in mind: This guy is going to do 20 YEARS before being considered for parole....how much you want to bet he's NOT going to get it?

    A witness for the prosecution who says Ghailani received explosives and was more involved in the plot to attack the embassies was never heard by the jury because his testimomy was coerced (i.e., tortured), which is inadmissable in American court.

    Now to prevent such things in the future...don't torture prisoners, and you have a better shot of faster trials with better sentencing because people wanted an execution sentence. So now the anti-Obama politicians and pundits are all screaming "Obama's civilian trials are a failure! He shames America's 9/11 victims, diminishes us in th eworld's eyes!"....which is interesesting being that the same detractors claimed that such trials could not happen on US soil due to the security risk. Welll, local residents and commuters were mostly unawares that such a trial was taking place in New York City!

    So, we have a SAFE trial with a conviction....a hell of a lot more than Bush did for 8 years with all his Constitution/Bill of Rights bending actions. More to come, I'm sure.

    .


    Since when do we bring the enemy captured on the battlefield to the U.S. and give them Constitutional rights? Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would have been executed by now if not for you stupid libs. The Constitution does not apply to the enemy, you libs are such backwards idiots...Unreal!! :cuckoo:

    Justice for KSM!!

    The author of the stupid original post subscribes to the absurd notion that we "should" treat terrorism in the same way we treat mere criminality.

    It was precisely that kind of mindless liberal "thinking" that led to the kinds of problems that made 9/11/2001 possible.

    Isn't that entire document part of a huge penumbra? Or maybe it was the umbra?

    I could tell you for sure, but a living breathing constitution that is kept hidden in shadows is difficult to read -- or pin down.

    Do some here really think that torture should be OK? Would it be OK for other countries to Torture our soldiers to get the information they want if were capture because its their service instead of their courts and that makes it OK.

    Were America, not the talaban or Alkaida or Iran or Saddam, we actually want people to look up to us because we are better than they are.

    What part of all this is GOD's plan anyway.

    The constitution applies to human beings in our custody and jurisdiction you fuckin halfwit.

    You have no more love of the constitution and the rule of law than most of the psycopathes in prison.
