Chan Lowe: The terror trials II


khaled.gifIf Khaled Sheikh Mohammed and the rest of those guys are so single-minded in their hatred of our country that they want to fall into the trap, then let them.

They can't wait for their opportunity to rant on the world stage...their words faithfully broadcast by Al Jazeera and other sympathetic outlets to all corners of the globe.

Those who have already been radicalized won't be changed at all, while other, cooler heads will notice that the alleged perps are shouting into a microphone provided by their accuser. What other nation would be confident enough in the rightness of its defining spirit to allow those who attacked it to speak their piece in a fair hearing?

It's certainly a lot more than these cowards would ever afford anyone who was in their captivity. Too risky. Might mess up the pageantry.

And a full trial that follows a legal code, and rules of evidence? With defense attorneys provided to the defendants? Are these Americans crazy?

Yes, like a fox.

If only they would confess none of this would be necessary....oh wait, THEY DID.


Chan Lowe is once again smoking his own shortz. he is tring to spin this into a good thing, because it was done by Obama. Doing this just follow his liberal ideology is the height of stupidity, and is dangerous on so many levels.


If they have already admitted guilt, and will be pleading guilty, then isn't this all just an academic and liberal waste of time and a LOT of OUR money? And what about the other terrorists that are getting military triburnals under AG Holder? Why for some, and not for others? I wonder, what is the price tag for this show trial? And is it worth it?
