There is no doubt the terrorist trial of the Sept. 11 planners in New York City will be a big show that aims to put the United States on trial. Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer in the headlines, implies American foreign policy will be on trial and he refuses to admit civilians were murdered.
O’Reilly calmly asks Fenstermaker a few times if he personally thought there was any justification for killing thousands of innocent civilians. He refuses to answer, and states over and over the jury will decide if anyone was murdered. O’Reilly reminds him millions are watching who probably think he’s a weasel.
There is something really strange about Fenstermaker. Is he a pawn encouraged to get out in front of the media and test the waters? Does he really wants to be part of the defense team? (Note, he is not part of the defense team.)
Since he has only met with one of the terrorists (not sure which one) and will not be on the defense team why do we care what this guy thinks?
What is his thought process here? I understand that he – as a defense lawyer – wants these terrorists to have a fair trial, but they could have had a fair trial in a military court.
