Bin Laden driver Salim Hamdan has been convicted by a military jury of supporting terrorism but acquitted of conspiracy charges. The AP described the jury as a “Pentagon-selected jury” of 6 military officers who deliberated 8 hours over 3 days.

Hamdan could be sentenced to life in prison. The sentencing hearing will be held later today.

  1. Did we go after Hitlers driver 60 years ago and give him life?
    Just curious.

  2. I’m content with this outcome: Hamdan was acquitted on some charges and convicted on some charges. The charges on which he was convicted it is hard to imagine him not being convicted for; the fact that he was acquitted *at all* demonstrates that the process is capable of producing acquittals, and goes a long way towards assuaging my concerns about the system.

  4. This was clearly a kangaroo court, and Gitmo is comparable to the gulags.

    Dachau… It’s like Dachau

  7. Scott, it’s like the anti-Dachau, but equally evil. Instead of starving the inmates, we’re fattening them up. I think it’s some Zionist plot to start selling soylent green!

    I’m pretty sure.

    Lela: “There’s already a cola like that… Soylant Cola.”

    Fry: “Really? How’s it taste?”

    Lela: “Eh, it varies from person to person…”

  10. Soylent Green. Now you have let the cat (or should I say corpse) out of the bag. You wern’t supposed to hear about this until the Envirowackjobs and the Warmenists had convinceed all governments to reduce mankind back to savanna grassland status. What little energy left will be used to manufacture non-animal, non-vegitarian, food – Soylent Green.

  11. Hitler’s driver features prominently on the blogs where I have seen this discussed.

  12. Don’t know anything about Hitler’s driver. Was he caught with two SAM’s like Hamdan?

  13. daleyrocks – It waited until the 1st freaking comment to toss out a Hitler comment, and trying to change topics. You have to give it credit for such an effort.

  14. The restraint was amazing.

  15. No information of a trial of Hitler’s driver; but,
    we did prosecute, convict, and sentence his architect to Life in Spandau!
