A good example is Citizen Phil - top o' the table
"... the Pentagon and the Administration have long argued that terrorists and enemy combatants should not be funneled through our normal criminal court system. And here we have the perfect case in point, why the court system is the absolute wrong place to resolve these issues"That case being Zacarias Massouai, and how the judge is considering whether to declare a mistrial or drop the death penalty option, after it was discovered several witnesses hhas been coached. This doesn't wash with Phil:
"These people are mortal enemies of the United States of America, her people, her government, her way of life. They do not belong in her judicial system, where civil and criminal laws are adjudicated for U.S. citizens."It's a shame they never adjuducated you, Phil.
"There is far too much at stake, to allow the whims of Judges to affect the outcome of these cases...This is the war on terror and when you fight a war, you kill your enemy. Judges in our court system are not war fighting machines. They do not kill people in defense of our very country, and are not equipped to deal as harshly and mercilessly as is required in such circumstances."The whims of the government and intelligence services being much more reassuring. I'm sure we'll hear a lot more from Phil in weeks to come.
