The Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Show Trial

By J.R. Dunn

AG Eric Holder's statement that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will remain in custody no matter the verdict in his upcoming Manhattan trial coupled with Obama's instructions to the jury that KSM be "convicted and executed" reveals the entire exercise as a show trial.

Military Tribunals - Justice Lite?

William Fisher, Truthout: "While Sarah Palin and other right-wing opportunists create a cottage industry in drumming up public hysteria about Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other terror suspects from Guantanamo coming to New York for trial, many legal experts and human rights groups are being equally outspoken in their criticism of the 'new and improved' Military Commissions designated to try five other detainees."

Obama's Failure to Close Guantanamo by January Deadline Is Disastrous

Andy Worthington, Truthout: "President Obama's admission in China that he will miss his self-imposed deadline for the closure of Guantanamo is disastrous for the majority of the 215 men still held in the detention facility, and for those who hoped, ten months ago, that the president would move swiftly to close this bitter icon of the Bush administration's lawless detention and interrogation policies in the 'war on terror.'"

Murder at Guantanamo?

Jeffrey Kaye, Truthout: "With recent news reports centering on Attorney General Eric Holder's announcement that some Guantanamo detainees would be prosecuted in federal court and revamped, albeit flawed military commissions, important stories from previous months related to the prison facility continue to sink ever deeper into the swamp of our collective amnesia."

It’s show trial time

CounterPunch
by Alexander Cockburn

11/22/09

The scenario envisaged by Obama, his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and Holder is presumably that somehow a jury of unprejudiced citizens will be convened, and ultimately — hopefully sometime before the election of 2012, at least — Khaled Sjhaikh Mohammed will step into the execution chamber, thus vindicating Obama’s oft-advertised commitment to track down the perps of 9/11 and kill them. So eager is Obama to underline this point that last Friday he declared in Japan that those offended by the trial will not find it ‘offensive at all when he’s convicted and when the death penalty is applied to him.’ This remark came right after his assertion that the trial would be ’subject to the most exacting demands of justice.’ Realising that the latter remark might be construed by some pettifogging civil libertarians as prejudicial to a fair trial, Obama then added that he was ‘not going to be in that courtroom. That’s the job of the prosecutors, the judge and the jury.’ So, in this prospectus, even if the Great War on Terror does not prosper in Afghanistan it will proceed satisfactorily in execution chambers here in the Homeland...
