New York Daily News Reports:
"When the 20th 9/11 bomber [Zacarias Moussaoui] was tried in Virginia, in a civilian court, and convicted, Mayor Giuliani testified in that case and he heralded the outcome," Axelrod said on CNN.
After Moussaoui was convicted in 2006, but spared the death penalty by a federal jury, Giuliani said he was "in awe of our system."
"It does demonstrate that we can give people a fair trial, that we are exactly what we say we are. We are a nation of law. . . .I think [Moussaoui's] going to be a symbol of American justice."
I am so sick of the garbage I hear from the conservatives lately. Former mayor Rudy Giuliani decided to talk up the wonders of American jurisprudence, and our amazing system when the Bush administration held the Moussaoui trial in Virginia.
Now that the Obama administration is suggesting the same thing for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (sp?), the Republicans are running scared. Does the former mayor think that the police force in Virginia is better prepared than the police of New York City?
