Robert L. Kerin 12-5-2009 Unit 4 1.) I believe that the Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings that was  adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on Dec. 15, 1997 is not a viable  solution, the reason I say this is because as stated there is no International criminal  court that can try these cases of terrorism, so with that being said where would these  “terrorist” stand trial? Would it be in the country that they attempted the terrorist act?  There are too many questions left unanswered with this “law” that has been adopted.  2.)

Is this a legitimate use of legal authority in regards to “war crimes” and “enemy combatants” when we are talking about withholding the rights of these said people from legal counsel and being held indefinitely without being actually charged with a crime. If you think about this on a lower level, like state or local government there would be no way that we could do this. I feel this is yet another loop whole or “flaw” that is in the American Justice System....
