Ok, let me get this straight... These people are clearly guilty... Guilty of 1,200 arsons nationwide and Alberto Gonzales is the bad guy? Right, electro-shock treatments anyone?
Their guilt isn't in question. The six men and four women already admitted being involved in a series of arson fires that did $40 million in damage to research facilities, a ski resort and other businesses in the West.
Prosecutors want Judge Ann Aiken to declare the group terrorists — something defense attorneys argue has never happened in 1,200 arsons nationwide claimed by Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front.
The defense argues that branding their clients terrorists is more about politics than sentencing.
"The Government has Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' political agenda to advance with this case, and nothing else to lose if the Court declines to impose the enhancement,"
if you ask me somebody's been damned lax and shirking their duty by not having these asshats declared terrorists already! This is all about politics alright. Not only are the libs complicit with islamic terrorists trying to defeat the American military, it would appear that they are breeding and protecting their own domestic terrorists.
