Argument: Trials far terrorists should not be held until after conflict


Cal Thomas. “Trying terrorists in New York is dangerous.” The Wichita Eagle. November 18, 2009: “The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were an act of war, as much as if a nation-state had attacked us. Trials should not be held for war criminals until the war has been won.”

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said in November of 2009: “What the Obama administration is telling us loud and clear is that both in substance and reality the war on terror from their point of view is over.”[1]
