I would just like to add some comments.

I was staying with my 82 year old mother for a couple of days as she recovered from some minor surgery.  She DOES NOT follow the news like myself and my siblings. ( She watches ABC Nightly News because Charlie Gibson seems like such a nice man.)

My mother exclaimed, "Look at that man (the pirate) smiling.  Have you ever seen anything like that.

Me: "Mom, He is getting fed three times a day.  He is getting a shower at the very least three times a week. He has a bed to sleep in.  He does not have to wory about rival clans coming to shoot him.  He is getting medical attention for his wounded hand and he is going to have a lawyer represent him."  I really wanted to point out that if he only had a goat or sheep to have relations with, then he would think this was heaven, but seeing as I was talking to my Mother I refrained form saying this.

I hope he gets deported ASAP, than an unfortunate "Accident" befalls him.

1)  A. This has already been determined

2) D 'Trial goes as planned, no circus'. Look at all the other terrorism trials...  It just doesn't have the tabloid appeal of a missing teenager or dead Hollywood girlfriend...

3) D. Guilty. Pirates are 'common enemies of humanity' and it is WELL established by international law that they may be tried by anyone who can capture them

4) I. Other - Life without possibility of Parole. Federal law is very clear, a conviction for piracy requires a life sentence. No other options are provided
