Glenn Greenwald on the charge of terrorist and the shocking implications of what it means to go to court under that charge:
But the Court of Appeals went much further. It reversed the conviction on all of the counts - including the non-terrorism counts - and ordered a new trial. That was necessary, said the court, because there are special rules that govern a trial whenever a defendant is charged with "terrorism", and these rules are so permissive, so designed to ensure conviction, that it is inherently unfair to convict someone under these rules who is not charged with terrorism.
When is a trial no longer a pursuit of justice? When that trial possesses a predetermined outcome against you.
