    Default 9/11 Suspects To Be Tried In NYC

    I think this is a horrible decision. I can't understand why Attorney General Holder is foregoing a military tribunal and choosing a civilian court instead. This is a bad decision on many levels.

    I think this is a great decision.

    - Force them to walk amoung those that they have caused heart ache
    - A public trial will mean it's public - not hidden - so the public can hear what the outcome and sentence is; they can also hear (however fucked it is) the rationale for their decisions.
    - I hope the fuckers get killed enroute to the trial

    Personally for me, if it was good enough for the Germans to have the Nuemburg Trials,then it would have been good for these terrorists to be tried similar.

    Nothing good will happen of having a public trial. You are exposing New York's citizens to a potential terror attack. Realistically how can one give them a fair trial?

    They committed a war crime and should have been tried as such in a military court.

    I would think most people in NYC would just like to see the whole lot executed and fed to Pigs. Tell the families of the people who were burned and jumped to their deaths that justice will be served just as Golda Meir told the families of the Munich Olympic Massacre in 1972.

    Just from a monetary and security point of view I would have to disagree. We are going to spend millions upon millions on security for this and still make it a terrorist bullseye.

    I think this is a poor decision and I wonder why they are still alive. It has taken eight years to get to trial, why? They should have already been found guilty of war crimes and shot. End of story, done.

    Put them on a remote control jet that crashes into the Atlantic! Put out a phony story that they got loose and were trying to hijack the plane, but the "crew" overtook them but in the struggle lost control of the plane and it crashed into the ocean. All lives aboard were lost.

    The Bush administration should have tried the Islamofascists before a military tribunal. By not doing so they've given Obama the opportunity to treat terrorists like common criminals, giving American rights to foreign enemies.

    But let's be honest; this isn't about trying terrorists in a civilian court. It's about trying the Bush administration in a civilian court. It's the closest thing the left will ever get to their wet dream of trying Bush and co. at the Hague.

    KSM is very likely going to act as his own lawyer which means he's going to be spewing his fanatical bullshit from the moment he's allowed to speak. Torture this, interrogation that, Bush, Palestine, Allah, Cheney, waterboarding, Abu Ghraib...

    Obama, yet again, gets to say, "I inherited this" without actually having to say it.

    The trial will be an all-time clusterfuck. Think the O.J. trial on a seven day meth bender.

    This whole thing is exactly what Al Qaeda wanted. It will be the second act of 9/11, where the US justice system gives terrorist more rights than the people who were jumping out of the towers that morning.

    This is probably Bush's biggest failure, the capture of these guys should have been kept secret, after interrogation they should have been shot and burried in unmarked graves in some far away place.

    Just be thankful the trial isn't taking place in L.A.

    They should just hand them over to the FDNY and NYPD.

    New York currently has a moratorium on the death penalty. Back in '04, the New York State Supreme Court ruled the state’s capital punishment statute unconstitutional. Further, they haven't executed a death sentence convict since the mid 70's. So it's *very* likely these guys even if convicted will simply spend the rest of their lives in prison.

    I thought that New York currently only allowed the death penalty in the case of murdered police officers. If that is the case, there is your loophole for putting these guys to death.

    Total number killed in attacks (official figure as of 9/5/02): 2,819

    Number of firefighters and paramedics killed: 343

    Number of NYPD officers: 23

    Number of Port Authority police officers: 37

    Number of WTC companies that lost people: 60

    Number of employees who died in Tower One: 1,402

    Number of employees who died in Tower Two: 614
