I'm not even sure what to say....

I would love to see a conviction rate for the United States....

Honestly, this is the perfect snapshot of why the "war on terror" is nothing more than a way to take away the rights of the free....

13%? The article goes on to say that of those 13%, 102 were actually convicted of drug charges, not terrorism charges. Only 94 were charged with terrorism-related crimes.

Our conviction rate won't be accurate.....

We just don't charge them......and call them "enemy combatants" .

Sounds fair to me.
