  • But somehow, barbarism, often cloaked in the language of "resistance," has gained acceptance in the most elite circles of our society. The words "war on terror" cannot be uttered today without fear of offense. Civilized society, so it seems, is so numbed by violence that it has lost its gift to be disgusted by evil.


    I agree.

  • I'm sorry but this right here:


     We are respectful of the legal process, but believe that giving confessed terrorists a worldwide platform to publicize their ideology sends the wrong message to potential terrorists...


    is indicative of right wing media influence.


    Khalid plead guilty. There will be no trial, no media platform at which to "publicize his ideology". As if they needed one.

  • So OP what do you personally want ?


    Federal court is the right place to charge the terrorist and they will get the deserved punishment. When they go to military tribunal it is impossible to charge them with act of terrorism.

  • What do I want? I posted about the parents of Daniel Pearl not myself


    If it was up to me youd likely call me disgusting for what id like to see done to the pos..but if nothing else military trial would suit much better..and by the way this wont suddenly make us look wonderful before the world ladies...I mean according to Holder anyway they have already set their sentence..all over tv..saying he will likely get death and things..I can hear it now..'evil americans it was fixed'
