A devil get’s his day in court

Most of us recall the capture in 2003 of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the man who is accused of masterminding the 9/11 hijackings. C’mon, you remember… he was that very, very, very, VERY hairy, sweaty, unshaven, mustachioed mass of flesh in a white undershirt whose newspaper photo etched itself in our minds and ruined our appetites for several weeks to follow… remember now?

Well, after several years of legal wrangling, Mohammed is finally coming up for prosecution in a U.S. Military courtroom at the base in Guantanamo Bay. He has already stated to the judge, Marine Col. Ralph Kohlmann, that he wants the death penalty so that he can be martyred for Allah (that can SO be arranged). The only question that remains is this: will the U.S. Military finally be able to proceed with prosecution of Mohammed and 75 or so other “freedom fighters” detained at GITMO OR will the incessant whimpering of moonbats over such interrogation tactics as waterboarding drown out any attempts to bring them to justice?

From USA Today:

His [Mohammed’s] long-awaited arraignment could begin to answer fundamental questions about the United States’ handling of justice in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks: Will the military commission system, which President Bush created to prosecute accused terrorists, ever hold one of them accountable for the tragedy? Or will the federal government’s efforts to secure guilty verdicts crumble amid mounting concerns about the evidence, fairness to the defendants and treatment of the accused while in custody? And if guilty verdicts ultimately are rendered for Mohammed, four alleged co-conspirators and about 75 other Gitmo detainees facing prosecution, will those verdicts be widely viewed as valid?

Here are the answers, USA Today: YES, NO and YES.

Down comes the gavel, all rise for the honorable Col. Kohlmann, let’s get this party started.
