Bin Laden driver convicted, faces life in prison

A military jury has convicted Osama bin Laden's former driver of supporting terrorism, a ruling that could see the Yemeni national sentenced to life in prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so the legal precedent is that the guy who put gas in the car, changed the oil and tires, and simply did as he was told, is being sent to jail.

Under that very precedent, every single American is now looking at a jail sentence. Every single time we sign a tax form and a check, we aid the war crimes committed by the government. And unlike Osama's driver, we do not get paid to do as we are told. We have to pay for the privilege!

If Osama's driver is guilty of aiding terror simply by driving a car, then we are guilty of aiding war crimes by growing the food that the troops eat, paying for the bullets and guns used to kill innocent people, pay for the torturers.

You cannot have it both ways. Under the decision just rendered against Osama's driver, you cannot pay taxes in the United States wihout being guilty of accessory to war crimes.
