TheCoolinator - Hello everyone, I just wanted to show you all an example of how the powers at be are trying their hardest to create a seperate court system away from the normal rule of law. They wish to try "ENEMY COMBATANTS - I.E. YOU" in Kangaroo courts where you have no rights. I would like everyone to do research on Nazi Show Trials and Soviet Show trials after reading this article. Do not allow them to take away the rights of others because if that happens then your rights maybe the next to go.
WASHINGTON—The Nigerian man who attempted to blow up a commercial jet outside Detroit on Christmas Day should be tried as an enemy combatant in a military court, a leading Republican Senator said on Sunday.
Senator John McCain, the Republican nominee for president in the 2008 election, said it would be a mistake to try Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, in a civilian court where he would "get lawyered up" and be afforded the right to withhold damaging information.
"To have a person be able to get lawyered up when we need that information very badly, I think betrays or contradicts the president's view that we are at war," McCain told CNN's State of the Union with John King.
"That person should be tried as an enemy combatant," McCain said. "He's a terrorist."
The U.S. civilian justice system affords some protections not afforded by some military courts.
Abdulmutallab is accused of attempting to ignite explosives in his underwear on a Dec. 25 flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. He was subdued by other passengers after trying to ignite it.
