Death Penalty for Suspect in the USS Cole Attack?

"American military prosecutors Monday asked a senior official to approve charges against a Guantanamo detainee for his alleged role in the attack on the USS Colein Yemen in 2000. That and a variety of other terrorism charges against the man could carry the death penalty."

"The prosecutors have requested the charges against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi citizen of Yemeni descent, who is among 14 men the U.S. government considers "high value detainees." The men were held by the Central Intelligence Agency in secret prisons before being transferred to the military-run detention center on the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba two years ago."

Ah.... Guantanamo... you know!! The place where we house all kinds of innocent people just because we are mean nasty Americans!

Make no mistake... the war on terror is not over... it ain't done.... We are still chasing and catching the bad guys... and by God despite the liberal lefties among us...
