Al-Zarqawi sentenced to death
AMMAN, Jordan (AP) -- Jordan's military court has sentenced al Qaeda in Iraq chief Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and two other militants to death for a failed suicide bombing on the Jordanian-Iraqi border a year ago.
Al-Zarqawi, who is believed to be in Iraq, and another of the defendants were sentenced in absentia on Sunday. It is the second death sentence issued against the Jordanian-born al-Zarqawi by his homeland's military court. The first was over the slaying of U.S. aid worker Laurence Foley, who was gunned down outside his Amman home in October 2002.

The court on Sunday said it found them and Saudi militant Fahd Noman Suwelim al-Feheiqi -- the only defendant in police custody -- guilty of the planned terror attack, which the prosecution said targeted civilians on the Jordanian-Iraqi borders a year ago.

I could support a trial where Jordanian-born al-Zarqawi is found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. He is responsible for the deaths of thousands and deserves a death sentence of a thousand cuts.

Having said that - he has to be captured first in order to begin the "real" process. Unless he is captured in the country where an "in abstentia" trial is held, the process will be a long one. Note how long Saddam has been imprisoned before a trial was started and how drug out it is going to be.

Ideally - these enemies of humanity should be captured on Sunday, tried on Monday and executed on Tuesday.

I believe in a fair, unbiased trial. Then hang him.

Ah trials in absentia. I love them. They achieve nothing really.
