Once upon a time, even George W. Bush thought terrorists should be tried in the United States:
But there are some that, if put out on the streets, would create grave harm to American citizens and other citizens of the world. And, therefore, I believe they ought to be tried in courts here in the United States. We will file such court claims once the Supreme Court makes its decision as to whether or not -- as to the proper venue for these trials. And we're waiting on our Supreme Court to act.
Today, of course, whingers are peeing themselves in fear over that very possibility. Go figure.
