The verdict came down late today after chaotic deliberations in the first civilian trial of a GITMO prisoner. Ahmed Ghailani was found innocent of all but 1 of over 280 charges against him in the bombing of U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
Apparently the evidence charging him with 224 counts of murder could not be used in court, because "coercive" techniques were used to get information from him.
The jury did found him guilty of "conspiracy to destroy government buildings." Huh? So the Muslim terrorist killed 224 people and he's guilty of ............... destruction of public property? Are we under attack from within or what?
This is a serious setback for the US -- no one can make a case for civilian trials. Another breathtaking Obama failure, yet again putting Americans and national security at risk.
