Saboteurs on Trial The Nazi Landings in Amagansett as Precedent for Guantanamo By Dan Rattiner Last week, the Pentagon announced that six Al Qaeda terrorists being held at Guantanamo would at long last be put on trial before a military tribunal that could impose the death penalty. They are to be charged with conspiracy, murder in violation of the law of war, attacking civilians and terrorism. Some of the terrorists have been held incommunicado for five years or more. One of them, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, is alleged to have masterminded the attacks of 9/11. The legal framework for this upcoming trial, as it was announced by President Bush, is based on the framework that was created in 1942 when four Nazi saboteurs landed on the beach in Amagansett from a German submarine in the middle of the night. After their capture, President Roosevelt had to decide what would be done with them. He had a meeting with the head of the FBI, the Attorney General, his Admirals and Generals, and Secretary of War, Henry
Stimson, and it was at that meeting that he decided to create a special military tribunal to determine the fate of the intruders. He personally appointed the judges, the two prosecutors and the two defending attorneys. And he tried mightily (and partially failed) to predetermine the outcome, which was that all of them, after the trial, be immediately put to death. Interestingly, at no time did Roosevelt consult with either Congress or the Supreme
in the proclamation each issued. Roosevelt said that these men who landed on our shore had violated “the laws of war.” He should have said they had violated “the Articles of War.” There are Articles of War. And it is possible to violate them. But there is no such thing as laws of war. It was entirely made up, and so, in fact, Roosevelt could do whatever the hell he wanted, cherry picking some evidence, avoiding other evidence. In Bush’s proclamation, just issued, he also used the phrase “the laws of war.” The phrase had never been used between the two proclamations, 60 years apart. The attorneys advising Bush knew exactly what phrase they wanted him to use. And they wanted him to use it for exactly the same reason. Those who landed at Atlantic Avenue Beach in Amagansett at 3 a.m. on June 12, 1942 came ashore with bad intentions — wooden boxes filled with dynamite, exploding pens, knives, maps and other documents. They buried all of this, including the Nazi uniforms they wore when they waded ashore, in the sand. Then they put on their disguise, which was fishermen’s boots, rods and clothes and simply walked from the beach to the Amagansett railroad station and headed for
At no time did Roosevelt consult with either Congress or the Supreme Court before deciding to create the tribunal.

Court before deciding to create the tribunal. He did what he did based on the fact, he said, that he was not only the President but also the Commander in Chief, which, in wartime, gave him the right to do whatever he felt was necessary to protect the people of the United States. An interesting parallel between what Roosevelt did and what Bush has just done is

The Bonackers finished the season with a 23-3 record, and earned League V, Suffolk County and Long Island titles. Congratulations to all of the seniors on the basketball team.
