Well said by the judge, but I don't agree with this... We are at war with radical Islam. To define his actions as just an individual crime diminishes the truth. The 9/11 conspirators were enemy combatants out to destroy America. This guy tried to do the same.
I agree with the judge, but I have a question here. If he is a British citizen, why was afforded the right to a trial? Shouldn't we have kicked his arse back to the UK and let them do what they wanted to him?
She's right about the he is a terrorist part, but wrong about us not being afraid. The country is afraid, and they already won. This guy and the fear, paranoia, and security theater that stemmed from this is the reason I (and millions and millions of other Americans) gotta take off my goddamn shoes every time I pass thru an airport.
