Military Prosecutors Will Seek Death for Sept. 11 Suspects

Is there anyway I can help?

The Pentagon announced today that it has charged six detainees at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, military prison with conspiring to carry out the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and that military prosecutors will seek the death penalty for each.

Hear that? Sounds like justice rolling down the hill.

In a news conference, Air Force Brig. Gen. Thomas W. Hartmann, a Defense Department legal adviser, said the six, including alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, are charged with conspiracy, murder in violation of the law of war, attacking civilians and terrorism, among other offenses. He said a charge sheet details 169 overt acts alleged to have been committed by the defendants and uncharged co-conspirators in furtherance of the Sept. 11 plot.

While this news sure does give me a warm fuzzy, I'm not celebrating until all the al-qaeda leaders (ahem...bin Laden and Zawahiri to start) are either sitting in a cell awaiting judgment by the AMERICAN legal system or are blown into little tiny bits of Islamic radicals (which stain by the way). Then I'll be happy. Although, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has overstayed his welcome on this planet by about five years now.

Here's the other five awaiting a firing squad (hopefully, but probably just get a needle in the butt which is too painless for these people):

The other men facing charges for the Sept. 11 plot are Walid Muhammad bin Attash, Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi and Mohammed al-Qahtani.
