    Sure the Feds should try KSM in FEderal Court, after all didn’t Obama and Holder promise America that he would be convicted? If the DOJ knew that some of the evidence was tainted then why on earth did they go ahead with the criminal trial? I really thought they were smarter than that.Report

    Also I forgot which part of the Constitution says the rule of law doesn’t apply if the court is calleda ‘military tribunal’?Report

    • Not sure where you got the idea I was making that argument, so I’ll just explain why I’m opposed to trying suspected terrorists in military tribunals: they’re not members of any military. They’re civilians who have been accused of a criminal act. We already have courts and an extensive legal architecture set up for dealing with criminals.Report
