Ken Gude, January 2010, Criminal Courts Are Tougher on Terrorists than Military Detention http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2010/01/criminal_courts_terrorists.html
When analyzing things in the American System, specifically the justice system, most people automatically think that it could have no impact foreign issues. But at the point in which the US is gaining more information from terrorists with the use of Plea Bargains compared to the success rate of Military Detention Centers (ex: Guantanamo Bay) it becomes imperative that the US continue the policy of using Plea Bargains to help protect US citizens. While most people would not want terrorists to have shorter sentences, they are overlooking the sentence length, but most importantly that these terrorists would never give information that saves American lives, had it not been for Plea Bargains. We must continue the policy of allowing terrorists to redeem themselves so that the US can expand its intelligence and continue its promise to protect its citizens.
