Update on KSM

Trial for Khalid sheikh Mohammad may never see the light of the day. Why is that?

Yo geggy, nice to see you!

The guy who oversaw the torture of KSM is now accused by Iran of having planned and executed the escalation into violence of the recent protests.

Because he has a defense team, and it's a military court, so he isn't on the U.S. Citizen "fair and speedy trial" plan.

I think it's because he's a patsy for the US government. Right? He's just some guy with a Middle Eastern name who was picked at random to take the fall for Dick Cheney and George Bush blowing up the WTC Buildings and bombing the Pentagon with a Cruise missile. It could be even worse than that. Some scholars of 9/11 feel that no one died at all and that it's all just a big media creation and cover up. Could be the reason that Donald Trump wants to keep everything about the trial quite. Right? Whadda ya' think?

There is, in your world at least, apparently no possibility that the Iranian people are tired of an oppressive and unaccountable regime, and are taking to the streets of their own accord. How odd.
As evidence, you cite the Iranian government itself, busily blaming the CIA, Zionists and Saudi Arabia for problems that are almost entirely of its own making, and without any corroborating evidence. Oldest trick in the book. What, pray, is your benchmark for trustworthy statements from governments? Do you blindly accept what they claim if they are anyone but western governments, or is it something about a government's willingness to shoot at protesters that leads you to classify them as trustworthy? Confirmation bias? Something else? Do please elaborate.

I can only guess what this might mean.
Perhaps you could elaborate? What prince, why do you think I'm being paid to do this, and, if you highlight any phrases or sentences you find unclear, I would be happy to explain it to you. Doesn't look like gibberish to me.

You forget that brown people are incapable of fielding their own political movements and rely 100% on western help to organize anything. No Arab. Iranian or Pakistani protest is EVER homegrown. You should have learned from CE and CTers like him that the CIA is omnipotent.

Childlike Empress, sorry I don't know you much, but are you still very well a "hijackers were framed" type? Even down to the fake phone calls?

One no-claimer asking another to state a positive claim? This should be entertaining.

I for one think itís been too long of a wait to see this pigís execution. I wish theyíd stop all this legal wrangling and get on with it. I can see it now - The pig being marched through the streets of Manattan and taken to the top of One World Center. I cannot decide what Iíd like more - seeing him impaled on the spire, hung from it or flung from it. Iím leaning towards a good flinging, provided good weather and a safety zone imposed around the estimated impact zone.

Now I very much aware that most, if not all of the members will find the above offensive, repugnant and not funny at all.

And I donít care.

Itís my opinion and I stand by what I said. At least Iíve said something.

Unlike you, who never says anything.

Why is that?

All of what you suggest is too much fanfare. Most people wouldn't know who he was. Dig a hole in Utah and bury his sorry ass.
