    Yep, we torture and detain people without trial. Oh wait, isn’t that supposed to be something only those dirty commies do?

    Nobody comes out looking good in all this. Bombing the Cole was a crime, without a doubt, and one that should be severely punished. Nonetheless, there is no reason that we should not live up to our own laws and legal precedent to afford whomever we believe is the perpetrator to a fair and timely trial.

    Doing anything less simply gives our enemies additional fuel for their cause. Doing so, sets a standard that others look up to as well as undercutting some of our enemy’s claims.

    We have let fear and demagoguery overcome our best selves to our detriment.

    If this guy really bombed that ship, then he should suffer the appropriate legal penalty. All you have to do is prove him guilty in an open and fair trial. Alas, that he’s big, scary, and brown and that you can feel his guilt in your bones doesn’t constitute proof.

    I don’t see any marsupials, and the picture of Obama does not do him justice.

    And they wonder why so many Arabs are anti-American.

    Seventeen dead on the Cole, they didn’t get a “Kangaroo Tribunal”.

    Yes, it was terrible, but if they have evidence of his guilt, why not live up to what this country supposedly stands for – the rule of law – and produce it in an open trial. We become more like the Arab dictatorships every day.

    Just make him listen to the next Republican debate, and offer him the chance to finish drowning himself, he’ll take it.

    The guy was already sentenced to death in Yemmen for his role in the Cole bombing. Send him back there and let them carry it out.

    “… the use of violence to intimidate civilians… " is part of the definition of terrorism in the Patriot Act. What exactly was ‘Shock And Awe’ at the beginning of the Iraq Debacle? How many civilians were not just intimidated but killed? Why is that not terrorism, because it was done by the US Air Force?

    What? All I keep remembering is the hole in the side of the USS Cole.

    No one has been tortured. Calling waterboarding torture is like calling a trip to the mall with your wife torture. Hyperbole is not truth…
