    Trying the 9/11 co-conspirators, including Kahlid Sheikh Mohammed, in federal, civilian court just got a bit harder. Support for trying these men in New York City has been dwindling, and some reports indicate the site has been scrapped, though the Administration contends NYC is still a viable option.

    Now legislation has resurfaced that would shut off funding for civilian trials altogether, only this time it has Democratic support. Sens. Jim Webb, D-VA, and Blanche Lincoln, D-AR, have joined the fight to deny the funds, making it harder for such trials to continue.

    If only our government could properly do its duty to provide justice. That would be a speedy military tribunal for all terrorists followed by immediate execution if found guilty. Instead they will waste time and money and deprive us of justice for the gross evil these men have committed against us.

    Oh, I don't know...civil trial seemed to get the job done in the case of home grown terrorist, Timothy McVeigh.

    So what larger world wide network was he a part of?

    What intel could have been gleaned from him to stop the future deaths of millions of Americans?

    Why can't liberal make legitimate comparisons?
