Sen. Conrad (D-ND) Flips You Off

Well, it's the season for birds, right?

Since Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Nov. 13 that five suspects in the 9/11 attacks would be tried in a civilian court in New York City instead of a military tribunal, Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) told CNSNews.com that civilian courts are well-suited to prosecute al Qaeda terrorists and that "if people don't believe in our system, they ought to go somewhere else.”

And then he adds the usual Half-Truth:

“We have tried terrorists in our courts and done so very successfully in the past and that is our system."

....forgetting to add that those 'others' were either US citizens and/or caught on US shores by LEO's who followed the usual criminal procedure (Miranda, etc.)

Senator, consider this post to be a return-flip of the bird to you. Eat THAT for Thanksgiving.

This will go badly, but they'll blame Bush. Either, it will be thrown out because they weren't Mirandized or they will be acquitted because the evidence is inadmissable. On top of that, the Administration is saying they will never see the light of day anyway? This is as unAmerican as I can imagine.
