Because freedom can't protect itself
Apparently the federal courts are good enough for US citizens but not to prosecute terrorists. . .go figure!
These defendants have a greater chance of a conviction under a military tribunal, that is exactly why the ACLU wants them tried in civilian courts.
I am more afraid of the War on Terror than of the terrorists. The War on Terror endangers human freedom and rule of law much more than a few terrorist bombs.
