It is disgraceful. It is a side show. It is a freak show. It is in no way the calm, deliberative and dispassionate trial America likes to tout as the standard for the world. This is the kind of judicial antics I’d expect to see in Myanmar or North Korea or the old USSR or Saddam’s Iraq. America is having its national cantharis. Or is it more exactly, its national enema? Anyone care to bet on the final verdict?
posted by WestPoint23:Actually, yes it is, in capital punishment cases the prosecution always puts people to the stand in this part of the trial to show the jury the defendant deserves the death penalty . . I am amused you think NK or the former USSR would have a trial for such a thing. I imagine a quick trip to the gulag or the shooting range would have been the norm. [Edited by Don W]

Lets be realistic.
If it is true that 9/11 was caused by outside forces, then we may have a legitimate trial here.
If it is true that 9/11 was a complete sham, concocted and masterminded here in the USA, then we have a patsy.
