Viewpoints: 9/11 conspirators shouldn't be tried in federal court

Wednesday, February 3, 2010 at 1:04am

 

U.S. Senator Bob Corker ( R-Tenn.) is cosponsoring bipartisan legislation to prevent the use of Justice Department funds to prosecute Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and the 9/11 conspirators in federal court. The legislation, sponsored by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) currently has 18 co-sponsors. Here are Sen. Corker's comments:

“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other al-Qaida terrorists should not be given the same rights as American citizens, and they should not be tried in a federal court.

“Congress responded to the 9/11 attacks by authorizing the use of military force and by developing a military commission system to detain enemy combatants and try those who violate the laws of war.

"Military commissions provide a fair standard of justice, reflect the true status of these terrorists according to U.S. and international law, and are the proper venue for the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks.”

Is it getting better, do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now, you've got someone to blame?

D-U: I believe you are wrong. Just like a prosecutor withholding evidence or a cop planting evidence, the USA got it dead wrong, 100%.
The USA wanted revenge for 9/11. Bush & Co. knew the American people expected some sort of action. Especially a vilent, tit-for-tat, one.
Saudia Arabia was the only logical choice, but Bush couldn't very well attack "them".
They needed a patsy, and since Iraq had the 2nd largest oil fields on planet Earth, it all fell into place.
Truman's dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan might of been overkill for Pearl Harbor, but at least he got the right country.
GW Bush will always be a paraih as a former President because he screwed it up, and most thinking minds know he did it on purpose. ("faulty Intel" is a b.s. reason).
Congress went along, assuming the freakin President knows what he's doing.
Wrong again.

By: bfra on 2/3/10 at 9:18

Dusty - You can't do that! THE sid recommended me. Doesn't that mean anything? (G)

War crime? When did Congress declare war as the constitution requires?
k3 - Bush did last week in a gay piano bar in dallas texas :)

By: DustyU on 2/3/10 at 8:57
k3 - actually I believe congress did right after 911 - declared a state of war against terror - somebody correct me if I'm wrong about that :)

d7 - I think you missed what I was saying here - I wasn;'t saying congress was right - I was saying congress declared war right after 911 :)

By: bfra on 2/3/10 at 9:24

Blanket you are right on that, but couldn't help but point out who sent the first slur of the day.

By: DustyU on 2/3/10 at 9:26

who or what are The Kardashians?

By: dargent7 on 2/3/10 at 9:30

D-U: OK, but Congress declared war on the WRONG country. They new. But if any came forward, except for Barack Obama and a couple of vegans like Kusinich, they'd be labeled a traitor and a Communist. Maybe they felt Bush & Co. DID know something they didn't.
I don't fault Congress, the whole enchilada was at Bush's/ Cheney's doorstep. The bloods on their hands.
If I were them, I'd hope to God Jesus ain't coming back any time soon.

Thanks, Loner, I'll chant this cheer all day long now!

Dusty, you will have to stick around when it's "harvest" time for sidney's garden. She gives away tons of her very own home-grown produce and she grows lots of it. (That is where the garden fixation comes into play.)

Bfra, blanket, you should know by now that you cannot have a battle of wits with an unarmed person! LOL

interesting article - my third wife suffered from this -

Dusty, the Kardashians are a bunch of skanks who have their own tv reality show. Bruce Jenner is their step-dad and I don't know why they are famous.

By: dargent7 on 2/3/10 at 9:34

D-U: The Kardashians? Who are they? You need to get cable or satellite and get rid of those aluminum foiled rabbit ears. Next season is almost here!

By: DustyU on 2/3/10 at 9:36

mama - Jenner has sunk that low since he won at the Olympics - wow!

By: house_of_pain on 2/3/10 at 9:40

MamaG, now picture Loner as the cheerleader in American Beauty...
you know, the scene with the roses.

My best guess about Bruce is, he has millions in the bank, won an Oylmpic Gold medal, had his face on the Wheaties box and was married to Elvis's ex-wife.
Now, he's married to a Goth family who's aggregate IQ is 80, drinks a beer at 9:00am, and has a "To Do" list that deals with when to pick up the Mercedes- Benz after the oil change.
Where do I sign up?

Don't forget how plastic Bruce's face is now. A few surgeries too many, IMO.

Dusty, the polio article was interesting--thanks for sharing.

By: Kosh III on 2/3/10 at 9:50

Sorry but Congress did NOT declare war. They may have sat idly while Bush(like most of his predecessors) illegally exercised his commander-in-chief power but it is not the same.

check out Southern Poverty Law Center to see how many dangerous home grown terrorists are out there - and they're not "iddy biddy dinky winky peons." just ask the people the terrorize.

Could you tell me the numbers: Do we have over 300 million people or is it 300 billion? And the haters are how many?

Don’t fret over it Dusty. sid is like a sex crazed flea climbing an elephants back with rape on its brain.

Sorry Blanket but I just have to add this.

Capt, sid is just mad that you didn't ask for her phone # when she offered to make your comments while the morse code was showing up. She plainly told you to call her and you evidently didn't get the hint.

D-U: That wasn't what I was referring to, but great addition. I never use any words that South Park's cartoon characters don't use.
And I think Loner said "penis" 4 years ago. (referring, medically, to what "Sid" was missing in her life).

So you guys admit to "baiting" me so that I will jump. I did not send a s-l-u-r! I merely posted.

I'll stop if they stop DustyU.

Also, please send me the total US population (good) vs the number of "hate" group members (evil).

At 63 I have never known anyone in a hate group. At least anyone who owned up to it. What's your affiliation D7? "Cherubs and Roses"?
