"Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is going to meet justice and he's going to meet his maker," said President Barack Obama's press secretary, Robert Gibbs. "He will be brought to justice and he's likely to be executed for the heinous crimes that he committed in killing and masterminding the killing of 3,000 Americans. That you can be sure of."
What is to be gained from going forth with a silly show trial if the Justice Department and the President have already determined the outcome?
Stand the bastard up against a wall. Give him a cigarette and then let him hear these three words: "Ready. Aim. Fire!"
And, since the new Obama budget has an item for $200 million to help cities defray the cost of security for these show trials, VIOLA! You've just saved $200 million for the cost of a few rounds of ammunition. (Hell. You could probably raffle off slots on the firing squad and make money on that, too!)
