War Crimes

The recent execution-style murder of Officer Timothy Brenton has justifiably shaken the residents of Seattle. The suspect, Christopher Monfort, is most certainly the culprit. His car was seen at the crime scene, and when discovered at his apartment a few days later, police claim to have found DNA and ballistics evidence that links him to the crime. Monfort openly talked of waging war against the police, having previously sent threatening letters and is likely also responsible for firebombing several police cruisers. He’s expected to stand trial for these crimes, but I must strongly disagree with that decision. He should be permanently held as a war criminal and not given a trial at all.

There are a number of reasons why I’ve come to this conclusion. For one, a trial is exactly what Monfort wants. He wants to be given a stage to air his views and be seen as a Che Guevara-type figure. He’ll be able to speak freely and criticize the police. And this will fulfill his desire to go down as a martyr for his cause. In addition, the independent media, who are generally anti-police in their perspective, will never present his trial in the proper light. And finally, the city of Seattle simply shouldn’t be subjected to the painful sight of watching a defense attorney try to downplay the seriousness of Monfort’s crimes.

Obviously, I’m being facetious with this argument. It seems odd to consider not trying Monfort in a criminal court, even for crimes that we’re fairly certain he committed. But each of the reasons that former 9/11 co-commissioner Tom Kean gave in the links above are just as true for Christopher Monfort as they are for Khalid Shiekh Mohammed. The distinctions we make in order to separate the two are purely technical – he’s not an American citizen, we’re “at war” with the terrorists. Neither excuse changes the overall logic of having trials for people who’ve committed even the most heinous of crimes. And the excuses for not giving Mohammed a trial for his crimes are just as invalid and absurd as they are when applied to Monfort.

I’d still imagine that there are some who’ve thought (or maybe even still think) that whenever a crime like the murder of Officer Brenton is committed, that we can just do away with our centuries old system of due process and just hang the accused in the public square. But that impulse is usually blunted by the reality that we have a system here that works, and has worked for hundreds of years. Yet when the accused is from another part of the world or when the circumstances feel like a “war”, it gives people an excuse to follow that impulse, regardless of how illogical the rationale becomes. That’s how we end up with someone who was once considered your typical “moderate” Republican making extremist arguments like the ones Kean makes in that interview.

Trying Khalid Sheik Mohammed in an American court for his crimes is no more a danger than trying Monfort for his. We don’t fear the possibility that Monfort will have a trial in which he’ll have the right to representation and can speak only in court. Even people like me, who write about the kinds of police abuses that Monfort became agitated over, have no interest in listening to what that jackass has to say about it. The belief that this dynamic is somehow different in the Muslim world, in that a coward like Mohammad has the ear of large numbers of people, is rooted solely in prejudices about the Muslim world. There are certainly large numbers of people in the world who are agitated by some of the same things that Mohammed was agitated about (the plight of the Palestinians, brutal dictators propped up by the U.S.), but the vast majority of them know that killing 3000 civilians in New York is not the right way to respond to it.

The foundations of our justice system work for a reason. They don’t just work because America is great. America is great because those foundations work. They establish a basic set of rights that allow people to feel a basic sense of security that their liberty is protected – that we won’t wake up one day being tortured in a secret prison, accused of a crime that we didn’t commit and have no platform for refuting. And as some recent pieces of good reporting have shown, the fact that we don’t make assurances like that to the rest of the world is precisely what feeds the extremism against us. The idea that denying trials for the Khalid Sheik Mohammeds of the world is what will make us safer has it exactly backwards. If our struggle against terrorism is a battle of ideals, then abandoning our ideals is how we lose that struggle.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 26% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. This is the second straight day at -15, the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for President Obama. Seventy-four percent (74%) of African-Americans Strongly Approve along with just 19% of white voters.

    Among all voters, just 34% now give the President good or excellent marks on his handling of the economy while 47% say he is doing a poor job in that arena. On national security issues, 42% say good or excellent while 41% say poor. Sixty-three percent (63%) of voters believe that political correctness kept the military from preventing the Fort Hood shootings.

    Black folks still view Obam-Mao as the “messiah” sans intellectual thinkers like Puddy. They are lemmings. Obam-Mao will do NOTHING for the average Black. Folks like Puddy, Star Parker etc have an enormous task to educate Black America because most Blacks mistrust White Conservatives (some for good reason by the way).

    But Conservatism will prevail over Obam-Mao’s Marxist wealth-redistributing America.

    I mean, if you’re going to get all legal eagle on us, why not attempt to use a bit of actual legal reasoning instead of regurgitating what you read somewhere in the moonbatosphere.

    I understand that you’re writing out your fantasy of finally getting to put the Bush Administration on trial for a year or so (during an election season with a press corps who beg to toss your candidate’s salad on a daily basis and are ready and willing to quote whatever KSM and his lawyers say in court as truth) but do try to use a brain cell or two in the process.

    #15 – I’ll send you a course catalog of the U.W. so you can take a political science 101 course. Did you really think Obama was going to RETAIN a 80% approval rating? He’s still polling higher than Reagan, twice your last President, and that’s during the worst economic times since the great depression.

    The point you can’t grasp is that much of that loss of popularity is from liberals and progressives who aren’t happy with Obama because he hasn’t gone liberal ENOUGH. So he is dropping in the polling, but it’s not because he’s too crazy liberal…it’s because he’s not ENOUGH. He ran on issues that like ending the war in Iraq, ending DOMA, ending Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, setting a strategy to get out of Afghanistan, AND…..implementing a universal health care plan.

    He’s not loosing popularity because he’s TRYING to push health care and such, that’s what he RAN ON and got his near landslide victory ON. His drop is because he’s not DOING it. If Obama would shift to the left, to the positions he got elected in a near landslide on, and DO those things, he might get back to 60% (a super super high realistic number).

    Obama’s 80% ratings were no more real with W.s after 9/11. Obama’s polled SO high because the last Republican President was SO SO SO SO massively horrible and unpopular the country wanted to elected ANYONE to replace the idiot. Like Bush as 9/11, when he had 80% approval, it wasn’t going to last. Again, if you take that PoliSci 101 course, you’ll understand more, but polling from unusual circumstances like that don’t last and eventually polling settles to ‘normal’ levels around 40%-60%, traditionally around 45%.

    Cynical, We recently had a terrorist attack on our soil.

    FT Hood Massacre was a big time Terrorist Attack. The Libtardo MSM will not call it that.

    Now onto Lee and his “hero trial” support of KSM. Lee supports this “show trial”. Would Puddy expect anything less from Lee spouting the American Criminal Liars Union party line? Hell No. The rights of terrorists always preclude the rights of the victims. Remember Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm said there was no War on Terror, it’s an “OCO”, Overseas Contingency Operation.

    The trial in NYC will be a waste of multi-millions of dollars. But since the Porkulus Bill was a waste of Billions of $$$$ whats a few million right Lee?

    Even Congressional Libtardos admit the terrorists and their lawyers are going to do everything they can to disrupt this “show trial” and make it a three ring circus. This “show trial” allow them to use it as a platform to push their radical ideology. Did you see one of the terrorist lawyers on Bill O’Reilly Monday? He wouldn’t acknowledge 2,986 people died in terrorist attacks.

    NY State Democratic Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver said, “Would I prefer it elsewhere? Probably” The NY Governor doesn’t want the trial in NYC. Chucky Swipe Your Social Security Numbers Schumer asked for additional $75 Million for security. Now why would Slimy Schumer ask for that? Cuz he knows something will happen during the trial. Is this another of those Joe Biden America being attacked moments he told us about?

    So it follows there are no military trials for these five scum bags since there is no longer a War on Terror. Except…

    But everyone can read what FDR did with the eight Germans caught in 1942. FDR is the hero of most HA Libtardos.

    Puddy posted this before. Right now HA’s arschloch, ylb arschloch is searching his beloved tctmgr database for the original post. This is why Puddy doesn’t produce links. The fool already has them. Imagine all those disk bits dedicated to HA when he could be looking for employment.

    From Puddy’s RSS Feed… Khalid Sheik Mohammed’s own words

    – “I decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew Daniel Pearl, in the City of Karachi, Pakistan.”

    – “I was responsible for the 9/11 operation, from A to Z.”

    His inspirational statement – “For the first time in my adult life I am proud of the US because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” Of course that was from Michelle Obama in 2008.

    “Khalid Sheik Mohammed asked to be brought to New York when he was first arrested. I didn’t think we were in the business of granting the requests of terrorists.” – Ex-NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

    Of course when you read that fool Josh Marshall over at TPM; (HA Libtardo Central)… (Remember this fool pronounced “Trigg was Bristol Palin’s Child” – WRONG) he thinks the trial will be tightly controlled etc., and nothing will get into the public view. So you think a gag order will work Josh?

    Or how about this dude now, who killed those four BlackWater security guards and they hung their bodies from a bridge? Well they were from BlackWater and we all know how HA Libtardos feel about those guys. Wanna see the links fools? Puddy has them… Kind of reminds me of the 9/11 truthers who patrol the leftist pinhead side of HA Libtardos… you know who you are… Heh heh heh!

    The stimulus package is hardly the only reason for the drop in Obama’s approval ratings. The other thing to consider is what would have happened if the stimulus hadn’t been passed. Sure the right claims it did nothing but waste money, but I doubt people who had their unemployment benefits extended would agree with you. It is entirely possible without the stimulus the current economic situation would be much more dire.

    It is certainly the case that if AIG, Citicorp, Bank of America, Fanny and Freddy, GM, and Chrysler had been “allowed to fail” the entire world financial system would have collapsed. The trust, credit, and liquidity that powers the financial system would have collapsed as well. This would have lead to a liquidity trap, deflation, and worldwide depression.

This is entirely different from sending hundreds of thousands of brave young men and women someplace to slaughter one another because a couple of dipshit heads of state (like George Dumbfuck Bush and Saddam Head-Up-His-Ass Hussein) don’t like each other.

    I believe you’ll begin to see Pres. Obama’s poll numbers begin to rise steadily next year.

    Here are the reasons in no particular order:

    1) Jobless claims are still high, but going in the right direction.

    2) The economy is beginning to recover from the worst Republican created financial disaster since the time they created the Great Depression.

    3) Health care will get passed. And, despite the tea baggers claims we won’t become a socialist nation. Like Reagan predicted we would in 1961 when he railed against Medicare that the Republicans are now defending from “cuts in spending” to pay for health care reform.

    4) The war in Iraq will start winding down and will come to an end on the Surrender Date Bush authorized.

    5) After very thoughtful consideration, we’re finally going implement a military strategy to finish the job in Afghanistan Bush under resourced for 8 years and let bin Laden escape.

    6) 2/3 of the Stimulus package will kick in in 2010 creating millions of new jobs.

    7) After health care is signed in to law Obama will get rid of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

    They won’t lead to any criminal or civil prosecutions, but, Tony Blair said he’ll testify truthfully now that he has legal cover.

    I believe it will come out that Bush committed to war in Iraq a full year before the invasion took place.

    Right. Which is why polls show a nose dive in support from independents and Dems in particular for sending more troops. As troops are moved in and casualties go up, support will erode even more.

    “Potted plant” indeed. I’ve been called so many worse things, that I actually just laughed. Hell, you’re probably right.

    1) People respond to the unemployment rate, and that is moving higher

    True. But, as a leading indicator the “initial jobless claims” show that the rate in which people are being laid off is slowing.

    If it were growing at 700,000+ per month like it was on Bush’s watch do you think that:

    A) the unemployment rate would move down, or
    B) the unemployment rate would move up?

    3)The legislation still must pass a number of hurdles. Currently, skeptics from both the right and left are deeply critical of the holes in the proposed “reform.”

    Again, your statement is true in that there are many skeptics on both sides of the isle. However, that does NOT mean the legislation won’t get to the president’s desk.

    When that happens, even if it’s very marginal reform, is very important. Remer, the mighty oak tree doesn’t fall in one chop, but many chops.

    Funny thing here, is the senior citizen tea baggers were saying “KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY MEDICARE” without realizing that it was the Republicans in the early 60’s who were opposing it. Now that they have it it’s so fucking great they don’t’ want anyone touching it!!

    Same with health care reform. Liberals WILL win the day.

    )5 Right. Which is why polls show a nose dive in support from independents and Dems in particular for sending more troops. As troops are moved in and casualties go up, support will erode even more.

    I know Republicans lick their fingers and check which way the winds of the polls are blowing, but not President Obama.

    Check back next Wednesday, Paul, see how the polls look then. One thing is for certain, this president picked a great VP, unlike McShame. Biden has passed on the WISDOM of history to Obama and he’ll engage our enemy with a plan for victory AND an exit strategy.

    That WILL get the support of Americans. As war efforts should. Although, Bush and Cheney made an art of politicizing the wars and deaths of our soldiers. Do you know that Bush never paid his respects to our fallen heroes returning to Dover AFB?

    Too much work I guess for the most vacationed president in the history of the Republic.

    6) Do you have a source for this? And if this is the case why are Democratic lawmakers talking about a second stimulus package?

    Yep. here it is. roll your mouse over each state you’ll see how much as been “awarded” and how much has actually been “RECEIVED.”

    Do the math yourself, or get an adult to help you, and you’ll realize that the majority of the money allocated to each state is YET TO COME. Which means when that money starts hitting, the jobs will start happening.

    JUST IN TIME FOR THE 2010 elections.

    See, Paul, Americans have very short memories. If we fixed the unemployment rate now, the Republicans would just create another “boogie man” phobia later. This way, by mid summer next year, Americans will be going back to work, Liberal politicians will have a good talk to use on the campaign trail and your side will be going down in flames thanks to tea party fanatics like Sarah “Bailin'” Palin.

    Didn’t you fools learn anything from NY-23?

    Ex parte Quirin, 317 U.S. 1 (1942), is a Supreme Court of the United States case that upheld the jurisdiction of a United States military tribunal over the trial of several Operation Pastorius German saboteurs in the United States. Quirin has been cited as a precedent for the trial by military commission of any unlawful combatant against the United States.

    It was argued July 29 and July 30, 1942 and decided July 31, 1942 with an extended opinion filed October 29, 1942.

    This decision states:
    “ …the law of war draws a distinction between the armed forces and the peaceful populations of belligerent nations and also between those who are lawful and unlawful combatants. Lawful combatants are subject to capture and detention as prisoners of war by opposing military forces. Unlawful combatants are likewise subject to capture and detention, but in addition they are subject to trial and punishment by military tribunals for acts which render their belligerency unlawful. The spy who secretly and without uniform passes the military lines of a belligerent in time of war, seeking to gather military information and communicate it to the enemy, or an enemy combatant who without uniform comes secretly through the lines for the purpose of waging war by destruction of life or property, are familiar examples of belligerents who are generally deemed not to be entitled to the status of prisoners of war, but to be offenders against the law of war subject to trial and punishment by military tribunals.”

    And this is simplistic analysis. If you can produce an economist that makes this optimistic argument, please do so. Paul Krugman, hardly a wingnut, has been deeply critical of the stimulus and its prospects:

    “Yes, the economy grew fairly fast in the third quarter — but not fast enough to make significant progress on jobs. And there’s little reason to expect things to look better going forward. The stimulus has already had its maximum effect on growth. Even Timothy Geithner, the Treasury secretary, admits that banks remain reluctant to lend. Many economists predict that the economy’s growth, such as it is, will fade out over the course of next year.”

MOABs suck out the air out of the tunnels. Continue to do this and you’ll trap the leadership inside. Then take apart the Taliban clusters who now are separated from the leadership. Do this a few times and the Taliban will fall apart, plain and simple.

    I wouldn’t waste my breath, these morons think Obama was born in Kenya and is the second coming of Stalin who is going to take all of their guns and outlaw all religions other than Islam.

     
    Unlike the smart liberals that feared bush was going to overturn roe vs wade.
     
    Unlike the smart liberals that thought bush stole the election, not once, but twice. And used those “facts” to extrapolate that bush was going to declare martial law and stay in office past his term.
     
    Unlike the smart liberals that know bush planned 9/11.

    Marvin,

    Arguing facts and getting positive acknowledgment with peeps like Chris Stefan is like ylb arschloch finding intelligence AND A JOB. Ain’t gonna happen. You know there are 9/11 Truthers here on HA Libtardos. Search Google for HA Libtardos with:

    “bush knew about 9/11 attacks site:horsesass.org”
    “bush knew about 9-11 attacks site:horsesass.org”
    “bush knew about 9 11 attacks site:horsesass.org”
    ” 9/11 Truth site:horsesass.org”
    ” 9/11 Truthers site:horsesass.org”

    Of course fools like Chris Stefan will claim ignorance to past actions by other HA Libtardos.

    Of course the HA Libtaros will trot out Richard Clarke when Roger Cressey was the Director and he said other things which mysteriously contradicted some of Clarke’s claims. Puddy placed this on HA Libtardos long ago. ylb arschloch has the PuddyMissives butt he’ll claim he don’t do the bidding of a right-wing “idiot”. Funny thing no one asks him anything so he’s the real idiot.

    That’s a great start.

    Honestly considering that we tortured KSM and denied him his Constitutional rights, he should be immediately released and sent back to wherever we got him from. In addition, Bush/Cheney/Rove should be tried/hung for war crimes/torture and KSM should be given $10 million as compensation AS Well as an apology from the American people for torturing him and denying him HIS Constitutional rights.
