...somehow I don't think it's coincidental that it took just long enough to put the case against them together that their trial will have to take place during the Presidential election campaign.
Six years, going on seven, and suddenly we're ready to go to court?
Why do I think that this is happening now so that the video from 9/11 gets played over and over again on the news for the next eight months?
Why do I think this is happening just so that the question "Senator Clinton/Senator Obama, do you think the US should execute the 9/11 conspirators?" gets asked in a variety of ways during every Presidential debate?
Why do I think this is happening now just so that John McCain gets to tell us early and often that there's no way if he's elected President these guys won't hang?
Why do I think the Maverick and Commander will never be asked what he thinks about the fact that one of them was tortured into confessing?
I don't know.
Must be something wrong with me.
