What I don't get is if you're not going to bother giving these men a fair trial, why you'd go through the motions of even a tribunal. Hell, if you're just going to put them in a kangaroo court why not save money and just have Delta shoot them in the head?

But why does Delta Burke get to kill 'em? Why not Annie Potts? (:

I'm not for everything that is going on at Cuba, but that first article in particular seems pretty darn slanted.

What they say is "confess" your crime "or die" is really just your standard plea bargaining that happens all the time in U.S. courts. It leaves the out the part about death penalty IF found guilty. Military tribunals are suppose to be fair, even though I would understand if some would have their doubts. I have heard some say that military tribunals have a lower conviction rate than regular courts though.

I don't have a problem with military tribunals themselves, but I do have a problem with the 'this is a war', 'no, this is not a war' back and forth position of the U.S. depending on what the situation calls for.

It has been an eventful year, so here's the question. What are the top news stories for the past year? Or maybe better put; "When historians look back what will they think is (are) the most significant event(s) of 2003?"
