What is important to note that Hamdan’s actions are that equal to the get-away driver for a bank robbery, SS drivers for Hitler, and other normal participants who are necessary in the completion of an alleged “conspiracy” – are not as big of cases as that of KSM, maybe ABZ, and/or hopefully someday UBL – but still necessary regardless of how small piece of the puzzle they are in all of this new age of the law.
Let’s not forget that Hamdan was also “allegedly” hauling missles in his car – this is a “support of terrorism” case (as well as “conspiracy”). Remember that even in our civilian justice system “aiders and abettors” are just as liable for the acts committed by those who actually pull the trigger.
