Germany Will Oppose Death Penalty In 9/11 Trial

Can you believe this one. Germany is sending observers to the upcoming 9/11 trial in NYC to ensure that none of the evidence it has provided to the United States will be used to seek the death penalty. Several of the 9/11 suicide pilots had lived and gone to school in the German city of Hamburg prior to the attacks of 9/11 and the German government had turned over evidence on those men to the U.S. government. Germany like most European states does not allow the death penalty.

Its one thing for a country to outlaw the death penalty, but another entirely to prevent evidence going to a country that does and allowing mass murderers to go free or get off with a reduced sentence. I wonder how the Germans would feel if the Commerzbank Zentrale building in Hamburg had been reduced to a pile of ashes with thousands of Germans dead. Would they then come to their senses, or has their defeat in WWII left them a bunch of whimpering cry babies afraid to cross the street less they get run over. Something does need to happen to jolt these sniffling pacifist back to reality less the Muslim hordes from the south overrun them and impose Sharia law with all its extreme penalties.



Germany Concerned Its Evidence to Be Used to Back Death Penalty in 9/11 Trial

Justice Ministry spokeswoman Katharina Jahntz on Saturday confirmed a report in Der Spiegel that a German observer would attend the trial to ensure that no evidence provided by Germany would be used to apply the death penalty.

A German government official says the nation will send an observer to the upcoming trial in New York of the professed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks and four accused henchmen.

Justice Ministry spokeswoman Katharina Jahntz on Saturday confirmed a report in Der Spiegel that a German observer would attend the trial to ensure that no evidence provided by Germany would be used to apply the death penalty.

Three of the four suicide pilots who carried out the attacks had lived and studied in the northern German city of Hamburg. Germany, like the rest of Europe, except for Belarus, does not execute criminals. read more from FOX
