So Let Me Get This Right. If KSM Is Found Guilty, He Gets Life In Prison; If KSM Is Found “Not Guilty”, He Gets Life In Prison?

I know, I am just a stupid American. I may be a member of Mensa, and have a Master’s degree in solid state physics, and was actually a Ph.D. candidate before the clock ran out before I could finish my dissertation research. But, I have a question. Eric Holder has announced that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the purported mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, and the person who beheaded Daniel Pearl, will be tried in New York Federal Court, just a few blocks from the scene of the 9/11 terrorist attack. What is that about!? He is not an American citizen. (Unless you claim that he is in the country illegally, and thus subject to citizenship? Is the fact that we captured him in Pakistan and brought him to Guantanamo Bay defacto proof of citizenship? I am baffled. I know we want to grant citizenship privileges to illegal aliens, like Mexicans, but this is a bit too bizarre.)
But, be that as it may, now Eric Holder is saying that KSM should be tried in an American civilian court, just like any other common criminal. (Please, name one common criminal who slaughtered 3000 innocent civilians, and decapitated at least one other civilian citizen, to boot!)
Given that he was not read his Miranda rights (how ridiculous would that have been….in the battlefield…..Mr. Mohammed…..you have the right to remain silent……) Anyway, he was not read his Miranda rights. Thus, anything he said is not admissible in a civilian court of law. He was “tortured” (water-boarded.) While many say that water-boarding is torture, and it may well be, I say torture away if it saves AMERICAN LIVES. Apparently, it did, since he reportedly sang like a canary after his “re-education”. That probably saved many AMERICAN LIVES.
Do I have an “agenda”? Yes, I do not want to see American lives pissed away. I want to see Muslim murderers killed. I really don’t care how we get to that point, and I don’t think most Americans do, either. If someone is out to kill Americans, they must be killed. Period. End of discussion. No debate available.
But, here is the real problem. Because he was not “Mirandized”, and was supposedly “tortured”, nothing he said can be used against him. While I recognize the fact that Eric Holder has said that we have far more evidence against him than what he has “admitted”, I am nervous. After all, lets not forget that O.J. Simpson was found “not guilty”. Fortunately, he was finally put away for other crimes, but the travesty of that trial can never be forgotten. There is a reasonably high probability that KSM, and other co-conspirators, could be found “NOT GUILTY”.
What then? Well, Eric Holder says that we would keep him in jail, anyway. Say what? How can you incarcerate someone once they have been declared “not guilty”? THAT would be a true travesty of the American justice system.
I say, try them in a military court, and execute them, and I think most Americans would agree. To do anything else is to risk the total destruction of our government, our lifestyle, and our freedom.
