Trying Terrorists is Trying

First, unlike many on the right, I don't believe Gotham is in need of the Caped Crusader or Batman or Spiderman to maintain security during the trials of the 9/11 conspirators. But what is the upside for New York, America or Obama?

The downside is obvious - wasted tax dollars and more bad press for Obama.

In the Middle East, a trial like this would take about 5 minutes and cost 500 rials/riyals/dinars. In New York city, it will months and cost 100's of millions of dollars - to reach an obvious guilty conclusion. Then the fight over where to imprison them pending execution will begin.

The majority of Americans believe Guantanamo prison should be closed. But no one wants the prisoners transferred to their state - even though the federal government will shower billions of dollars on the lucky prison community to ensure that these super-villans don't escape. Duh Con Air was only a movie.
