As the 9/11 trials got underway at Guantanamo Bay, Eddie Bracken addressed media to talk about his sister Lucy Fishman who died at the World Trade Center.
Bracken said he didn’t think the 5 suspects facing a military trial “have any souls.” He said if they’re convicted and not executed, they should never again “see the light of day.” He added, “Lockdown. Solitary confinement forever.”
Asked about the military trial vs. a civilian proceeding, Bracken said he preferred the military proceeding—“It was a military act.” Bracken, like countless other Americans, views the 9/11 attacks as an act of war.
Media reports suggested the suspects hammed things up—praying at inappropriate times, making a paper airplane and turning to face family members who watched as the accused flashed them a thumbs up.
