Members of the military do not go to civilian court they go to TRIBUNALS. Tribunals are "good enough" for our military but somehow an ILLEGAL ENEMY COMBATANT gets a full fledged civilian trial?

The control of the military and military bases does not include normal "Constitutional Rights" that is why it is not wrong of them to control the press or their own uniformed personnel. In fact it is necessary in order for the military to function. Ever heard of "military secrets"?
I don't remember all this crazyness during the first WTC bombing trial. It happened in court and they were found guilty. Its fine.

Look no further...

Palin Ft Bragg Visit Opened To Media, With Restrictions

At first, they wanted to prohibit the 1st Amendament 100%, but now believe 50% is good enough...

I can see why, because the FAR LEFT POLITBURO, led by NBC-MSNBC would go out of their way to DISS Mrs Palin and turn this into a Three Ring Circusi!!
Besides if I am Ft Bragg, I wouldn't want the Traitror bastards on the grounds for any reason, as they would slip the footage to the next ALLAH AKBAR idiot out there in Obamaland!!

I think the difference is that now we're at a war which we the American people have stated there is probably no end to.
So with the legal limbo that we put the "detainees" into, trying to invoke "war-time" standards, we've just established an INDEFINITE holding period.

With the WTC bombing, a crime was committed.
We recognized the importance of a trial.
We acted upon it.

In today's world, it seems the point of the trial is just lost on some people.
What's worse, JUDICIAL REVIEW of the detainees is just plain lost on some people.
Our entire system of government is built on checks and balances. Often to preserve human and civil rights.
Our founding father documents talked about rights which "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights".

I guess on one level, I think it's hilarious (dark humor sort of way) that we talk about "military tribunals", and then these detainees STILL NEVER SEE a trial...
Our government has insisted on setting up a situation of allowing themselves secret justice, and then they do not even apply it...

The terrorist battlefield is where?.........EVERYWHERE.

They were NEVER in MILITARY custody. They were extradited.

And the executions were..........
And HOW MANY terrorists were recruited because of INTERNATIONAL PUBLICITY?
The lawyer although found guilty is now back on the bar and defending other terrorists. (Oh sorry you would have to know about the lawyer that was caught tried and convicted of transferring messages from the jailed "blind sheik" to and from his followers.)


There is MUCH "crazyness" that you don't know about. Nobody can watch over everything all the time. That however does not mean that we have to make it EASIER for them. Again please tell me a really good logical reason WHY we SHOULD have the trial in NY when there is a far better place and better way to do it. Do you bring the rabid dog into the living room to kill it or do you take it out behind the barn? Especially if there are more rabid dogs in the pack.

Why is Palin going to a military installation to do a book signing?
I want soberness at my military installations, thank you.

She's not a servant of the people going to greet the troops, she's just trying to promote a book.
What would happen if I tried to sell a book at a military base.
Just asking, is this normal?

Ever been to a military base?
Most are actually small cities.

That does not answer the question. By what authority do they stage this stuff. And who are they?
