Since they are obviously moving forward with the civilian trials for the 9/11 conspirators... Has NO ONE put into consideration they did the exact same thing with one of the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombers? Wonder how that has turned out?
Mamdouh Mahmud Salim
On 20 December 1998 he was extradited to the United States, where he is charged with participating in the 1998 United States embassy bombings.
Since then he has been convicted of attempted murder, after stabbing two prison guards and maceing others during an attempted escape. He was sentenced to 32 years for the crimes.
Still support the civil trials and housing them in US prisons?

Since Eric Holder's former law firm is/was the defender of, they say, up to 17 or 18 of the gitmo terrorists, seems to me that there is a HUGE conflict of interest here but then with this admin. there are many who have some kind of issue. And since they all are "the avant garde", well, you know, it's all good, no worries, (for anyone in their club, anyway). Hopefully, now that they no longer have that coveted 60th vote, their radical trend can no longer continue... I am not at all confident that the 9/11 terrorists will receive justice, my fear is that they will somehow be let off the hook, for some technicality that's absurd and that will enrage lots of folks!
