New York Post

12/10/08

Two dozen family members of Sept. 11 victims signed a letter Wednesday saying they don’t believe in the fairness of the military trials of five men charged with orchestrating the terrorist attacks, and some suggested their opinions cost them attendance at the proceedings...

Justices voice concerns about 9/11 detainee lawsuit

CNN

12/11/08

Current and former top Bush administration officials may have caught a break from the Supreme Court Wednesday on whether they can be held personally liable for the alleged mistreatment of those detained after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The justices heard arguments in the case of a man arrested in the days following the terror attacks. However, they appeared uneasy about allowing former Attorney General John Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert Mueller to be subject to discovery, or pre-trial depositions, in the ongoing civil lawsuit...

Gitmo: Confessions upend trials

Associated Press

12/09/08

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed said Monday he will confess to masterminding the Sept. 11 attacks, throwing his death-penalty trial into disarray and shocking victims’ relatives who watched from behind a glass partition. Four other men also abandoned their defenses, in effect daring the Pentagon to grant their wish for martyrdom. The judge ordered lawyers to advise him by Jan. 4 whether the Pentagon can apply the death penalty — which military prosecutors are seeking — without a jury trial...

Justice denied

CounterPunch
by Stephen Lendman

12/10/08

It’s a familiar story. A Muslim American is accused of terrorism for supporting Al Queda and conspiracy to provide support for a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). The prosecution asks for the maximum sentence. Once again, an innocent man is arrested, charged, indicted and convicted with no substantiating evidence except for what prosecutors say they have. All of it is bogus and much classified and withheld from the defense. Witnesses are enlisted to cooperate and proceedings orchestrated to intimidate juries to convict. Justice again is denied. Those accused bear the mark of cain for being Muslim in America at the wrong time - especially if they’re devout, activist, and for some prominent and engaged in charitable work...

Why does KSM want to be executed?

National Review
by Andrew C. McCarthy

12/09/08

KSM is going to be put to death. He knows it and we know it. The same is true of his four underlings. The question is not if but when. These legal proceedings, then, are simply theater. For the Left, that means projecting shopworn themes under the guise of thoughtfully pondering the purpose of the jihadists’ procedural maneuvering. Is KSM scheming to challenge our new president’s redoubling of Islamic outreach? Is he daring Obama to kick off the promised era of good feeling by executing Muslims, even as the new administration backpedals from campaign commitments to shut down Gitmo and withdraw from Iraq forthwith? Or is he, as the ACLU speculated for the New York Times, trying to draw attention to the asserted folly of abandoning the 1990’s model of civilian terrorist trials in favor of ‘a failed commission process?’ Yes, it’s the silly season. What we don’t yet seem to grasp, even after all that’s gone on these last two decades, is that our politics and our law are of interest only to us. They matter nothing to jihadists...
