One terrorist being tried in a U.S. civilian court

"In early 2005, Colombia extradited FARC leader Anayibe Rojas Valderama (aka "Comandante Sonia") and other criminal associates for drug trafficking and terrorism charges. Colombia also extradited Cali Cartel leader Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela in 2005. Other high-ranking drug trafficking targets arrested and/or extradited include Consolidated Priority Targets and members of the North Valley Cartel’s Top 10 list, such as Gabriel Puerta Parra, Jose Rendon Ramirez, John Cano Carrera, and Dagaberto Florez"

Anayibe Rojas Valderama was sentenced to 17 years in prison today on the drug charges.

The jury will now consider the terrorism charges against him.

U.S. civilian courts seems to be able to handle terrorism cases just fine.
