Pelosi Statement on Military Tribunals

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement this evening on the Judiciary Committee's re-vote on President Bush's military tribunal legislation:

"Democrats want terrorists who kill Americans tried, convicted, and punished, and they don't want those convictions overturned by the Supreme Court. The Bush Administration has had five years to devise a system for trying terrorists that would meet Supreme Court standards and they have failed miserably. It's obvious from the concerns expressed by Secretary of State Powell, General Shelton, and other distinguished military leaders that the Bush Administration still hasn't gotten it right."
