    What law says terrorists are entitled to civilian trials?

    The Constitution only sets up one system of judiciary for trying criminals. It doesn't establish a separate system for those who commit politically motivated crimes.

    Then Revere is safe in that he will be tried like everybody else when he gets stupid.

    Revere, the question has been settled, you get your opinion, and who cares?

    Enemy combatants have been tried in military courts.

    Where does the Constitution give authority for the government to declare somebody an enemy combatant, and where does the Constitution spell out any such authority for military courts?

    Nowhere, that's where.

    The whole enemy combatant thing is unconstitutional.

    As I say be careful for what you wish you may get it.
    Strict constitutional intrepretation will have many unliked consequences for many/most.

    Most were captured overseas, for crimes not on American soil.

    FDR shot them all the time.
