Ahmed Ghailani

The first Guantanamo Bay detainee to be tried in federal criminal court was found not guilty on all but one of the 285 counts he faced for his role in the 1998 East Africa embassy bombings.

285 counts and found guilty on only one! That's almost mathematically impossible.

Before going any further according to the transcript of a closed-door hearing in March 2007,  Ghailani admitted delivering explosives used to blow up the US embassy in Tanzania in 1998.

 So what we have here is this. Timothy McVeigh gets the death penalty. And considering the magnitude of the crimes, this scumbag practically skates? 

Ghailani was acquitted on 284 charges including one murder count for each of the 224 people he killed. So out of the remaining 61 charges they can only find him guilty on one!!!

He was found guilty on the charge of conspiracy to destroy government buildings. What? The people inside the buildings don't count? The difinition of conspiarcy is: an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons. So if you are guilty of conspiring to blow up the buildings, how is it possible to be found not guilty for the resulting death of 224 people inside the buildings?

(Talk about spin)

The U.S. Justice Department responded to the verdict in a written statement, saying, "We respect the jury's verdict and are pleased that Ahmed Ghailani now faces a minimum of 20 years in prison and a potential life sentence for his role in the embassy bombings."

(Are you kidding me... drug dealers get more time then this)

Being fair does not equate with being stupid.
As a terrorist he does not have the rights afforded an American citizen.
This is the end result of trying them in a civilian court. If we weren't already, we certainly are now, the laughingstock around the world.
"The Messiah and Stedman" didn't see this coming? The TV commentators are saying this is a slap in the face and a failure for the Obama administration. I'm not so sure. Maybe this was the outcome they sought all along.

I have rocks in my back yard smarter then these prosecutors. These guys make Marcia Clark look like Perry Mason. Stupidity must trickle down from the top. Which is no surprise when you consider who the head of the DOJ is.

You would think of all places on God's green Earth he would have been found guilty in New York. Are the jurors in New York this stupid?

Isn't 20 years to life severe enough for you?
