    Do we even know if this guy is eloquent enough after being tortured?
    I think there is little honor in killing the leader of any country. They should be in solitairy confinement for the rest of their life. If we sponsored Saddam in the past then we needed to be careful of our leaders quickly silencing him.

    Can Muhammad call George Bush or Dick Cheney to the stand?

    Can he claim anything he admitted to was under torture, and therefore the case must be thrown out?

    Can he insist on having equal representation of Musllims on his jury? And if he's his own attorney, can he choose those Muslims himself? (It is said to be ok for Muslims to lie to infidels, i.e. claim to be unsympathetic to terrorists)

    If one Muslim terrorist after another continues to hang the jury, how long will this go on?

    Can he have the case thrown out because he wasn't given a speedy trial?

    If he's acting as his own lawyer, can he view sensitive information regarding our intelligence? And can he go on indefinitely, to a live camera broadcasting to the world, about his extreme views on jihad against the infidels?

    The fact that this circus is going to happen right down the street from the most proud accomplishment in the history of terrorism........

    Thank you, Barack Obama. What a truly great man you are.

    I wonder why there haven't been any attempts on KSM's life...

    Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but I was on the road.

    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.

    I'll give you the Wiki page on her. [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynne_Stewart]Lynne Stewart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    It wasn't that she was passing on government secrets, it was that while the blind Sheik's attorney, she passed along messages that incited violence against other governments willingly. Making her not only a traitor to the United States IMO, but a felon in the eyes of the law.

    I absolutely agree that she's a felon and a scumbag, my point was just that she wasn't passing along any government secrets that she got as a result of being his lawyer, only statements from the sheik himself.

    Still against the law. The statements she passed along incited violence from terrorists in Egypt, and caused AQ to ramp up activities as well. In order to believe that she didn't know what the consequences of her actions were, or that it would cause the reaction it did, is to suspend disbelief.

    KSM is a known terrorist enemy to the United States, he is therefore not protected by the Geneva Conventions or the US Constitution. There is no need to "prove" his guilt since he his not legally or morally entitled to a trial.

    KSM takes full credit for planning the 9/11 attacks. What else do you need?

    That's not what I'm saying. I agree that it was against the law and that she knew full well what the results would be.
