Now this is Change We Can Believe In. Some Americans are worried that Enemy Combatants held at GITMO will not receive justice before U.S. Military Tribunals, while other Americans fear that bringing KSM and other Al Qaeda terrorists into the U.S. to stand trial in civilian court will endanger our people's lives, publicly embarass the United States, compromise critical intelligence in the War on Terror, provide a world-wide podium for Jihadist rantings, demoralize our military and intelligence services, and risk acquittal due to procedural technicalities.
President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have Hopeful news for both camps. For those fretting "civil libertarians" Obama promises KSM a fair trial, and for those worrying "national security-ists" Obama promises KSM a fair hangin'.
What else to make of both Holder and Obama assuring skeptics that a civilian court trial will not lead to acquittal?
