One of you sounds like me talking, almost exactly...
the other... well, I guess it's roughly what i expected when I asked.
FYI, batshit theories aside, this is what a controlled demo actually looks & sounds like:
not actually that similar to the WTC, is it? Not with the sound on, anyways.
well those look pretty impressive
of course the sounds are different
but basically the same....
have you see the videos where the implosions went wrong
and the buildings only came about half way down then
tumbled over on other structures??
takes a lot of skill and know how to do it right
its very difficult...
I think it is very clever that the current Administration has decided that the masterminds behind 9/11 will be tried as civilians.
Despite what many "stupid" Republicans are arguing, a military trial is not a good idea for two reasons:
1) It shows that you are better than them by affording them civilian rights.
2) More importantly (in case you feel like eveyone knows 1) already), why honor these small-time criminals as fully-blown soldiers or warriors by insisting on a military trial? I'm sure they'd like nothing more to be considered as legitmate combatants by being given a military court. Don't give them that.
A more pressing reason, IMO, is that the military commissions system has only managed to convict 3 guys so far. They also got overturned by the SC, on another case, and had to set 5 guys free.
Contrast to the federal courts: in the last 10 years or so, the federal courts have done ~120 terrorism cases. Only 19 acquittals. And even those guys, all got found guilty on some other charge. Nobody got to just walk away.
