Why Isn’t Khalid Shaikh Mohammed on Trial?

Dems are finally coming out of their shell, and Attytood posted what should be a strong portion of the Dems’ platform in ’06 and ’08. Relaying a question from WaPo, Attytood asks “Where is Osama?” and why isn’t Sept. 11, 2001 mentioned anywhere on the FBI’s Wanted Man sheet. Attytood takes the WaPo line an important a step further by saying:

Forget bin Laden (as Bush and Cheney seemingly have) for a moment. What is the deal with Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, said to the organizational planner of 9/11, in custody somewhere since 2002 — and to this date not charged for his role in the greatest mass murder in American history?

What gives? Wouldn’t a conviction of KSM, under the American system of justice be not just a courtroom victory but also a victory in the worldwide court of public opinion, where America has been slaughtered the last four years or so? Instead, KSM is hidden away in an American gulag that makes a mockery of the values our troops are supposed to be defending.

That’s a more important question than what it reads on bin Laden’s “Most Wanted” poster.

What is the deal with Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, said to the organizational planner of 9/11, in custody somewhere since 2002 — and to this date not charged for his role in the greatest mass murder in American history?
