YIELDING TO THE DEMANDS OF TERRORISTS:

Portrait of 9/11 ‘Jackal’ Emerges as He Awaits Trial (MARK MAZZETTI, 11/15/09, NY Times)

Not long after he was rousted from bed and seized in a predawn raid in Pakistan in March 2003, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed gave his captors two demands: He wanted a lawyer, and he wanted to be taken to New York.

After a nearly seven-year odyssey that took him to secret Central Intelligence Agency jails in Europe and an American military prison in Cuba, Mr. Mohammed is finally likely to get his wish.


The best part of this whole dog and pony show is that if he were to be acquitted there is less than no chance that the UR would free him. Indeed, if the press were adversary enough to ask the question the President would be forced to acknowledge that fact.
