  •  Cool, I'm fine with it (0+ / 0-)

    as long as people we catch actually trying to attack us don't end up in our court system.

    •  You might relax about that as well (0+ / 0-)

      Remember, the 1993 WTC bombers were captured, prosecuted and imprisoned.  Which is a lot more than we can say for anyone seriously involved in the 2001 attack.

      If you think you're too small to be effective, then you've never been in the dark with a mosquito.

      •  Yeah, I remember (0+ / 0-)

        that trial.  Took too long and used too many resources.  For those guys (the non-US citizens) I would want the military to handle.

        •  Used too many resources? (0+ / 0-)

          do you have information that compares the cost of that successful prosecution to whatever it is that you beileve would work better?  

          The cost of providing fair trials is part of the price we all pay for our freedoms.  And the value of our freedom is not, IMHO, measurable in dollars.
