“There is no contradiction here: military courts for attacks on the military, civilian courts for attacks on civilians.”
OMG. And if the next batch of terrorists are clever enough to attack an elementary school will they be tried in juvenile court?
How bizarre is Holder’s logic? First, why give more rights and more protections to a terrorists who targets civilians? Secondly, the court ought to be determined by the nature of the defendant, not the nature of the victims – if KSM is an enemy combatant he deserves a military tribunal regardless of who he was crafty enough to target.
