According to the lawyers for the 9/11 defendants who will be prosecuted in Manhattan, they intend to plead not-guilty. They will do this with the intent to use the trials as platforms to state their views regarding the U.S., Islam, Osama bin Laden, and everything else.
My perspective? Good!
I realize that Khalid Sheik Mohammed and the rest may stand up in open-court and shout "Death to America!" Fine! That is how our system works. In fact, the more responsibility they wish to claim, the easier it will be to prosecute them. That is the nature of how our legal system has worked for hundreds of years and will work in this trial.
I see this as an opportunity to celebrate our system of justice and the principles upon which we stand. And for that, we should all be proud!
