"So, we tried a guy (who the Bush Admin tortured and then held at GTMO for 4-plus years with no end game whatsoever) in a federal court before a NY jury with full transparency and international legitimacy and -- despite all of the legacy problems of the case (i.e., evidence getting thrown out because of Bush-Admin torture, etc,) we were STILL able to convict him and INCAPACITATE him for essentially the rest of his natural life, AND there was not one -- not one -- security problem associated with the trial."Sure looks to me like they're going to go full speed ahead "prosecuting" more of these guys in New York City.
"Would it have been better optically if he had been convicted of more counts? Sure. Would it have made any practical difference? No."
Well, the fact there weren't security problems should be cheered. Big difference between this guy and anyone involved with 9/11.
This attitude toward blaming Bush and whining about alleged torture is just deplorable.
