I am appalled by all the hue and cry against the 9/11 conspirators at Gitmo being tried as civilian criminals in NYC and not in a military court. Did .IQ.s just drop overnight? This atrocious act against humanity was not a war crime. Aside from the obvious like rejecting legal precedent and the rule of law, the worst thing we can do is co-sign their jihadist status by associating their crimes with a military trial. We should resolutely avoid anything that legitimates their Islamist world view by treating them as soldiers of any kind. This would greatly please al Qaeda’s minions worldwide. We must try them in criminal court by U.S. District Attorneys. They are murderers, not clandestine partisans.
