In a felony court, or are they going to let him off with a traffic ticket?

Actually, I want an open court and open testimony; I doubt we’ll get this no matter what the venue.

But a good defense attorney could raise some interesting questions.

(Neither Sirhan nor Oswald nor Ray ever got open trials,
with cross-examinations and questions asked.)

no, this is what they did to macveigh. he’s a us citizen on us soil. if we lose our constitutional protections in this case, it will set a dangerous precedent. we can’t have justice by lynch mob.

Obama is making that happen with Khaled Sheik Mohammed, no?

If KSM isn’t undeserving of a civilian trial, then there is no military court anymore. The mistake was bringing that terrorist back at all.

Was Bush impeached when Jose Padilla was tried in a civilian court? If not, why the double standard?

No...He was bullied by his brother...

Americans made fun of his big nose...

The Internet was a bad influence on him...

All the racism in America drove him to strike out for justice...

Not the least bit surprised.

And now we’ll also soon learn about a new diagnosis of some kind ...along the lines of workplace violence:

Public Event violence
Street onlooker violence
Teen angst violence
Marathon explosion syndrome

Since there is no enemy
There is no enemy combatant.
The captured guy is therefore a criminal
QED

If there is no war
there are no warriors
only criminals murder

QED

The logic is unassailable if you accept there is no war

He is a legal citizen.

It would have been interesting if his brother had survived. Then we might have had one in military court and one in federal court.

This is as it should be. He's an American (naturalized) and he did his crime in America. Ergo, civilian court.

I have a problem with Enemy Combatant Status for American citizens (e.g., being stripped of all rights), because any of us could be next.

He's a US citizen who committed an attack on US soil.

This isn't enemy combatant crap. No extended caribbean vaca for him.

Try him and fry him.

He is a United States Citizen on United States Soil. If it turns out he is an "enemy combatant" working on behalf of a foreign government or a foreign terroist network, then on top of the murder charges, they can try him for treason.

He is entitled, by virtue of his American Citizenship, to the same due process as any other citizen. That includes the right to a speedy trial by a jury.

If the government can take that away from him, it can take it away from you.

If articles of Impeachment are brought against Obama, the urban negor population, all white liberal facilitators and the individual members of congress will declare such action as denying every black American their US citizenship.

Perception is reality.

He’s an enemy combatant, but they gave him American citizenship.

So at this point either go through the process to strip him of citizenship or give him the full protections any of us should have.

Don’t create a precedent for ignoring citizen’s rights, simply because of this bozo.

“Wake up America! He is an enemy combatant, there is no doubt. Jeeze......”

And also a US citizen with protection under the bill or rights. Sorry, but preventing lynchings is one reason why the bill of rights exists. Perhaps you should be questioning the events that lead to his citizenship.

It’s better to try him in civilian court. Making it military bestows too much credit on them, elevates them to something they aren’t. Trying him in civilian court says “you’re just another murderer”.
