    No, not if you are muslim. Then you are guilty until you are executed. That is the conservative way of thinking. I bet it also applies to anyone who disagrees with them.

    It should be noted that if sensitive information will be used as evidence in the trial, proceedings could be closed to the public. If so, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed won't be able to use the trial as a forum for disseminating his extreme views.

    Under the American rules of trial, KSM will be privy to sensitive information though, information that can be passed back to other terrorists still on the run. And before you say that is absurd we have already seen how that happens...Need I remind anyone of this woman?:

    Lynne Stewart, the terrorist lawyer, who billed herself as a “Civil Rights Lawyer and Political Prisoner,” was recently convicted of conspiracy and for passing along fatwas (Islamic religious edicts) from Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman to his terrorist followers in Egypt’s Islamic Group.

    Question: If this guy is a whackjob, how does exposing him a such hurt the cause? It's like interviewing some screaming birther - it doesn't really help the cause.

    What sensitive information from the government was she leaking? It sounds like she was only passing on fatwas from the guy on the inside, not actually sharing documents.

    Your party and Obama is taking that chance to create even more terrorists by giving this guy a show trial to spew whatever hatred and lies he wants.

    Its a disgrace.
    That party thing is leftover from 2005. I couldn't vote then. I am not a registered Democrat, but I haven't changed it yet.

    Oh we are going to show the world how our wonderful system works, this man will have his day in court. He will be fitted with the best lawyers we have to offer, he will be before a jury of his peers, and he will enjoy every aspect of our fine system of justice.

    Yeah........right up to the point where he is aquitted, and then re-arrested and taken back to prison directly. This makes absolutely no sense whatsoever! We are going to end up looking like hypocrites should this man actually be found not guilty, why are we risking this embarressment?

    Here is what bothers me. Not just you, but a number of posters, aren't capitalizing proper nouns such as Americans and Constitution. I know it's the internets but let's show the a little respect when all it involves is tapping that shift key once in a while.

    And now brought to you directly from the Saul Alinskey Rules fo Radicals play book accuse the opposition of your own position to throw them off balance and put them on the defensive.

    In this case it's a near adult version of the childish phrase; "I know you are but what am I." In a way.

    Thing is everyone knows it's the Liberals who love to jump to conclusions and make wildly outlandish claims they can't come close substantiating.

    Remember they are the ones who claim to be in favor of human and individual rights but support the murder of the innocent unborn even ones that could be delivered alive. The Liberals think it's okay to have them 90% delivered them have their brains sucked out because some sotty excuse for a woman can't handle a living innocent in her life.

    So yes let's hear more about justice for the presumed innocent terror master mind (even though he confessed and has bragged about it sense) from the experts on human and civil rights.

    You did know that the Southern Democrats fought tooth and nail against the civil right movement. And did you also know it is from their ranks the KKK was born.

    Hells fire to hear them tell it fully half of them over the age of 50 marched with Martin Luther King in Selma. Of course they would have been about 5or 6 years old. If that were true there would been no reason to march.

    So let's have more lessons from the Party of Civil and Human Rights.
