Cole bombers were tried in a military court.
9-11 bombers to be tried in civilian court.
Military Court is considered a stern and efficient court. Civilian court is the court system used by US criminals.
Is civilian court a reward for a terrorist who was captured during a war?

Separately, Holder said the men who carried out the attack on the destroyer USS Cole in Yemen will be tried in a military court. The attorney general said that because that crime took place overseas and involved a military target, it was more appropriate to prosecute the perpetrators in a military court.
But Holder said it made more sense to try the 9/11 plotters in New York where civilians were targeted. "Cases are typically tried in the place where the offense occurred," he said.
What do you mean, criminals USE everyday?

So, I suppose the attack on the Pentagon doesn't count. sweet will never be able to see is that acts of war should be tried in military court, not civilian court.
Please don't tell me what I will see, the reason was MOST of the victims were civilian
