As America continues its efforts to combat terrorism, one must wonder what will happen when we finally catch Osama bin Laden? (Note that I wrote “when” not “if,” for I remain confident in our President’s leadership and our military’s quest to fight the terrorists who have attacked our land.)
President Bush suggested that a military tribunal is appropriate considering the magnitude of the charges and because the “suspect” is not a citizen of the United States. Tribunals are very straightforward and are used for those accused of war crimes. The proceedings are handled by the military and are kept secret, an aspect which inflames many in the media who feel the need to know anything and everything at all times.
