U.S. announces charges against five 9/11 terror suspects
Retired Navy Vice Admiral Bruce MacDonald, who is the military tribunal's Convening Authority (CA), will consider the latest charges and decide whether or not the death penalty can be sought.
He was subjected to simulated drowning, known as waterboarding, 183 times during his years in US custody and his trial will raise questions about evidence obtained from harsh interrogation methods.
"If referred (capital or non-capital), a military judge would then be assigned and a panel of eligible military officers would be selected as potential members of the military commission. The accused would then be arraigned within 30 days of the service of the referred charge."
Almost identical charges were filed in May 2008 but dropped when the Obama administration announced plans to try the 9/11 suspects in a civilian court in New York.

My opinion is
1) You are a terrorist sympathizer!
2) Sheikh Mohammed deserves everything he gets for the terror he and his group have forced on the world!
3) Go and live with these animals you defend! They will kill you in a second as they believe everyone except for them are infidels!
4) I don't care what terrorist sympathizers say or think about me!edit on 1-6-2011 by phatpackage because: (no reason given)
