66 Months, Out in 5!
 
The long awaited first terrorist military trial and sentencing is in ladies and gentleman and the [URL="http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/08/washington/08gitmo.html"]verdict is, well, not satisfying[/URL]. Question is what happens to him in 5 months?

Re: 66 Months, Out in 5!
 
I was fairly annoyed when I saw this yesterday but assumed I'd be in the minority regarding our handling of enemy combatants.

But stuff like:

“After that, I don’t know what happens,” said Judge Allred, who had developed [I]a warm relationship with Mr. Hamdan[/I] during months of pretrial hearings.

And:

Mr. Hamdan, [I]who at times has shown a mischievous sense of humor[/I], raised his arms and said a good-natured, “Bye, bye everybody.”

And:

“Inshallah,” Judge Allred responded.

And:

Mr. Hamdan’s answer to his safety if returned to Yemen, Professor Schmitz said, was: “Look, you guys get me out of Gitmo. I’ll take care of Yemen.”

Speechless..........Fortunately I can still type.

This is clearly a war our Government doesn't intend to 'win', as such.

If I were on trial I am fairly certain I wouldn't be 'showing a mischievous sense of humor'. What about the impartiality of the Judge? He developed a warm relationship with a defendant?!?!??! Does he even understand what 'inshallah' means? No, it's not as simple as 'god willing', you utter moron!

We are so screwed if this is the best we can do.

:soapbox:

Should be interesting to see the spin on this one.

It was a solid opportunity for the current Administration to set the tone, I really don't think that was achieved.

Having said that, what does everyone think [I]should[/I] have been done? I'd be interested to know. I also promise I won't be replying to the thread and 'discussing' it.

The real buffon was the guy who did not take Bin Laden when he was handed to the US back years ago. I would have liked to seen a much longer sentence but as people demanded that these guys get their day in court are now complaining about their sentense. You cannot have it both ways.

RedskinRat, I'm not sure why the judge's "Inshallah" response bothers you?

As for what should have been done, I would have taken the civilian court route. What really bothers me is that we've spend 7 years and millions of dollars to convict a lowly driver in a kangaroo court...and all he got was 66 months....so retarded.

Stop with the blame game and see the principles of the matter...and the question is what to do with him after he's out.

lol good luck with that. The blame game is always a convenient excuse to skirt around the actual issues.

There are reasons why civilian courts are not used and I don't have the time to look them up. I do know one reason is because we are holding them as enemy combatants we have to use military tribunals (or what ever they are called). I also think even after his 5 months are up Bush will hold him as an enemy combatant as long as he is president. I agree what the judge said was wierd and maybe he had his agenda. They may also use his words to call for a new trial as they maybe able to show the judge showed a bias attitude. I would call military courts a kangaroo court as most do a good job and these guys have served our country. I have seen plenty of kangaroo civilian courts.

Right. I'd admit that as soon as you admit that Bush has been a major F up.
