‘Heads I Win, Tails You Lose’: In 9/11 Case, KSM Won’t Walk Free Even If Found Not Guilty
Attorney General Eric Holder acknowledged on Wednesday a previously unspoken proviso to the controversial decision to try alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four co-conspirators in a federal court in New York: even if the defendants are somehow acquitted, they will still stay behind bars.
To Call what will transpire with KSM in New York a “trial” is absurd. It is a perversion of the rule of law. Even if the government by dint of holding the trial in the most defendant hostile venue possible ( just a few blocks from ground zero ) can not secure a conviction; if can not do this after Obama further poisoned the waters with his statement ( http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/34015727/ns/us_news-security/) KSM will not go free if he is somehow acquitted. He will continue to be held under the made up legal rubric of “enemy combatant.” Sentence first, trail later.
