Mine probably won't be a popular opinion, but I'm firmly against giving terrorists trials. You can't be a terrorist without being an enemy to mankind, all of mankind. Once a person reaches that level of threat, I'm all for stripping them of human rights and executing them. What I am against is keeping them in jail for extended periods of time, where extended periods of time is time greater than what's needed to extract information out of them. These are the true world's enemies and they take the battleground into schools, police departments, office buildings, where innocent people are killed without remorse. Yep, I'm all for dropping bombs on them.
