And set to be tried blocks from where the WTC once stood.

Let me put this into perspective for you: The only people responsible for 9/11 who remain alive, seen as freedom fighters and heroes by many around the world, are being tried in a federal courthouse in downtown Manhattan. For a terrorist attack in which their cohorts blew themselves up in order to create panic and murder thousands of innocent people in downtown Manhattan.

Whoever is responsible for that decision can eat a dick.

So instead we should subvert the rule of law and prove to the people who see them as martyrs that the US is willing to compromise our founding principles whenever we like?

I wasn't implying that we should deprive them of a trial. (Although it's quite obvious that the trial is a hoax, a media circus. If we expect people to be dense enough to read in it the True Grande Olde American Principles of Peace, Freedom, and Justice etc. etc. then we're pretty fucking dense, huh?)

I was merely saying it may be a bad idea to try terrorists/freedom fighters in such a sensitive location (both tactically and emotionally) as the neighborhood in which the attacks happened.

Well, I admit that I don't have the perspective of living in New York, but where else should the jurisdiction be?

Maybe I'm being naive but I think that having BHO as President negates a lot of the ill will the rest of the world felt towards America. It hasn't changed the issues in the middle east or the Israel conundrum but I think most potential international terrorists are likely to appreciate that there is very little to be gained from pissing off the new guy when he hasn't really shown his cards yet.

He could have been tried at The Hague though. That would have made sense from a diplomatic perspective but I'm sure we're all well aware of how much America excels in that department.

Now this is a story all about how my
Life got flipped turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
I'll tell you how I become the prince of my house’s Cellair

In west Austria born and raised
Fucking my daughter is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin', all cool
and building incest dungeons underneath my pool
I took three kids out cuz they were all good
told my wife they were just children from the neighborhood.
I fucked just one of my daughters the police got scared
But they don't know the pin-code to my daughter's Cellair.

They called the partyvan and when it got near
The license plate said “AUSTRIA” and it had dice in the mirror
"you crazy" they said, "those ideas in your head are rare,"
I said, "cool homes, it's rape time, home, to Cellair!"

She crawled out the house after 7 offspring
And she yelled to the cops "Yo, I can't speak Austrian"
But I'm still pimping, I got three more lairs,
so come and party with me, in my second Cellair.

You know I can't even stand to look at photos of that man. I just wish I could forget about the whole affair - and the fact that something so unspeakably and unimaginably evil has become something of a joke in certain circumstances so soon after it happened is utterly depressing to me.

Yeah, international court would have made more sense than the federal circuit.

1) there is precedent for motions to hold trials other than where the jurisdiction mandates (because, if I'm not mistaken, the crimes were technically committed in the jurisdiction of the courts where the trial is being held) due to the probability of not getting a fair trial where the crimes were committed. 2) since I think the issue of them being enemy combatants is legally dead, the trial legally involves a simple, domestic criminal issue and as such does not warrant a trial at The Hague.  Certainly it would make a little more sense than a kangaroo court, but hopefully that won't be the issue and I'd like to think that the trial is being held in the US to show the international community that he will get a fair trial here.  Now, more often than not, whenever I have a hope that deviates from my standard cynicism, it is completely destroyed but I can always have hope.

Taking this moment to remind everyone that the last highly publicized trial the US government was responsible for (if not de jure then for all intents and purposes) was that of Saddam Hussein.

It's even weirder to think that The Dov Charney Photo Thread might actually cheer you up in this situation.

I've long harbored the suspicion that the whole Star Wars thing could've been averted if Uncle Owen had just given Luke a solid backhand to the mouth and told him to quit whining so much.

For the record, what is the appropriate amount of time before it's acceptable to joke about incest/murder/pedophilia/unlawful imprisonment?

Now, I'm nowhere near the US but even I can see that a fair trial for anyone involved is impossible on US soil.

I think it will go something like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXT-XVmrqZo , to be honest.

Exactly.  My point is that they're hopefully having the trial here to dispel those notions.  Two years ago it definitely would have been impossible.  I'm hoping the administration is trying to show that the leadership has changed and we're interested in being a sort of okay country again.

I am on the right bringing this thread back to its original, less intellectual level (sorry), Mufasa is my desire to pack up my worldly goods.

I am on the right, and Mufasa is my general inability to reconcile the two major conflicting thought patterns floating around in my head;
1) My life sucks right now, I hate it, a bloo bla bloo, I don't have the motivation to do anything productive, I just wanna lie down and die.
AND
2) IF YOU DON'T GET YOUR REAR IN GEAR YOUR ASS IS GRASS YOU NEED A JOB YOU NEED TO GO TO SCHOOL YOU NEED TO STOP FEELING SO SORRY FOR YOURSELF.

1) Stop yelling at me! :(
2) STOP BEING A BABY.
