    The Obama administration abandoned plans for a civilian trial in New York City for the self- proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks and is sending the case to a military commission at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    Attorney General Eric Holder blamed Congress for the administration’s decision to move the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four alleged co-conspirators to the military justice system. Lawmakers enacted legislation that blocked the administration from moving terror suspects from Guantanamo to the U.S. for trial, and the administration decided it couldn’t allow the case to be delayed while it worked to repeal the restrictions, Holder said.

    Members of Congress have intervened and imposed restrictions blocking the administration from bringing any Guantanamo detainees to trial in the United States, regardless of the venue,” Holder told a news conference in Washington yesterday. “Those unwise and unwarranted restrictions undermine our counterterrorism efforts and could harm our national security.”

    The administration’s 2009 announcement about holding a New York trial ignited fierce debate in congress that continued ever since. Republican leaders argued against a trial in federal court, saying it could pose a safety risk in New York and that the alleged terrorists could be found not guilty on a legal technicality. Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont and other Democrats stood by civilian trials, saying the court system had a proven record of handling terrorism cases.

    The point of this:


    The PRC will likely make shifts in handling internal pressures and dissidents but things in governments and nations take a longer time than someone's pronouncement to change. Condemning the PRC constantly is not the way for nations to go about dealing with China - especially when they have their own human rights abuses running rampant in their own nations.

    The USA is afraid to bring to justice in the USA a person who is allegedly behind killing some 3000 people on US soil.
    Again, KSM is an enemy combatant and was captured by Inter-Services Intelligence and CIA operatives in Pakistan - not a petty-criminal reined in by InterPol. Big difference! Why anyone would have him tried in civilian court is beyond me!

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    A well regulated Militia is not necessary for the security of a free state, is it? Is that what you're getting at as China is not a Free state if they could bear arms as part of a militia they would be? Not sure the PLA would be very happy.

    What about the right to live somewhere that every other prat doesn't own a gun?

    True enough. In the PRC only the CCP has any weapons. Mao wasn't dumb; he wrote: "Power grows out of the barrel of a gun", so confiscating all private weapons was one of the first things the Commies did in 1949. Since then, Gandhi-style passive resistance can only have one result - a bullet in the head. Very effective.

    Very effective indeed. Do you think the human rights people would be quite so up in arms if the poor peasants shot back?
