Argument: Little difference between civilian courts and military tribunals

Issue Report: Trying 9/11 terror suspects in NYC courts


Margaret Carlson. “Big Apple Justice Fits Man Accused of 9/11.” Bloomberg. Nov 19, 2009: “there is no longer much difference between a military and civilian trial. After the U.S. Supreme Court weighed in on the shortcomings of George W. Bush’s tribunals, Congress and the Obama administration granted more rights to the accused.” Therefore, trying terrorists in civilian courts is little different, and not more risky.
