WHY BOTHER WITH A TRIAL?

"What everyone seems to be over looking is the fact that 24 innocent Iraqi’s died.... If they were killed in cold blood then the Marines deserve everything they get"

Unless, of course, they were killed in cold blood by the jihadists. Or, for that matter, if they were killed not in cold blood, but while being used as shields by the jihadists. Chances are pretty good some were in each of the 3 categories, but we will probably never know for sure unless we get, on the one hand, proof that they were mostly shot by AK-47s, or on the other, confessions by the marines.

KATRINA: RESPONSE TIMELINE

Posse Comitatas would come into effect if he was going to use federal troops for law enforcement duties, not for stuff like rescue work.

With widespead looting and lawlessness, Posse Comitatus made it legally problematic to send in federal troops precisely because it forbids them a law enforcement role. To allow such a role, the President would have to declare an "insurrection," which he arguably could do. (But note that Bush's enemies have regularly been railing against such use at least since 9/11/01 and would of course declare that the claim of "insurrection" was illegal -- and even an impeachable offense).
