    Some mild mannered, middle-aged women agree.

    For what it is worth I am drafting a letter to send to my Rep., Senators, VP and the President. I don't have any hopes that my voice will make a difference, but they will have to at least listen to me briefly.

    I would love it to be explained again, why the trials are conducted in the two court rooms built at GTMO, at the cost of $11,000,000.00 for just one of them. State of the Art facilities, built SOLELY to try the 9/11/01 conspirators.

    The other issue is the fact that you are bringing the terrorists directly back to the place where so many people were effected by the attacks and making it a big high profile public deal rather than focusing on the true goal: justice. I see no reason why it has to be so close to the source of the attacks and bringing New Yorkers back to that horrible day once again. Also I think the biggest issue that it is being done in a civilian court and we are spending so much money to try these bastards.
    I think the idea of this trial increasing the risk for terrorism is a little weak. If Al-queada is going to attack us they are going to do it whether or not there is a trial going on.
    But even if it HAS to be done in a civilian court, why the hell is it the high profile location of lower manhattan??? Pick somewhere else!!!
