    Alleged Al-Qaeda terrorist Ahmed Ghailani acquitted of all but one charge in embassy bombing trial

    The first civilian trial of a Guantanamo detainee ended in disarray Wednesday with an alleged Al Qaeda operative convicted on only a single conspiracy count the African embassy bombing trial.

    I told you that the Military courts should handle these cases.

    Another victory for the Hussein administration.

    Landmark terror trial ends in not-guilty verdict on all but one count - CNN.com


    The US put on over 40 witnesses, and defense put on none and only took 20 minutes to make their case. Judge threw out the testamony of one terrorist because he was allegedly "tortured".

    At least he was found guilty on one conspiracy charge and faces 20+ years.

    A pathetic defeat of Obama's claim that we can have these assholes put on trial in civilian courts.

    Looks like they knew they were losing, 3 days ago:

    Obama to detain KSM indefinitely without trial at all? Hot Air

    "Potentially life" my ass. These trials are not meant to convict anyone but the previous administration.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the Hussein pardons him for the one conviction. I mean obviously he isn't a terrorist if he was not guiltyy on 284 counts.

    So, lemme see if I grasp this theory of yours, theHawk. The government aka "the Hussein Administration" blew the case on purpose (cleverly concealing their real agenda by putting on over 40 witnesses) and the prosecutor is out celebrating tonight?

    Bullshit.

    I am unsure what should be done with these guys from GITMO but if the US Atty did not make his case to a NEW YORK CITY jury, he was never gonna be able to make it. The defendant was found not guilty for only one reason -- he wasn't.

    Please stop using all the tinfoil for hats. We'll need some next week for the turkey.

    You know something none of us knows? Why's it impossible there are innocent people in GITMO?

    You're not "innocent" if you are fingered by other terrorists under interrogation techniques someone doesn't like.

    KSM's trial should have been over long time ago. He should be worm food by now.

    No disagreement here. Yet it seems now that Obama and Holder will just let them all rot at Gitmo, no trials since their plan failed. There are no words for the incompetence.
