    What the world should see is that the US won't give that sack of shit a civilian trial.

    What kind of fair trial would he have had?
    The administration had said that he's guilty, and even if he's found innocent through a technicality he would have never seen the light of day.
    This is what barry was trying to be transparent about, so the whole world could see this trial that would have ended up being a sham?

    The Barry administration just blinked.

    I'd say this is a trial balloon to see how much heat they get from the loony far left over the prospect of having KSM's trial in a military rather than civilian court. Odds are no matter what they hear from them though they'll still move it because the overwhelming public opinion is in favor of the military.

    Next up, not closing Gitmo!

    All of those Terrorist must be tried by a U.S. Army Military tribunal. They must not be given the same rights as American citizens.! The terrorist attack on 9/11 , was an act of War, not a criminal act by American citizens.
    Attorney General Holder , and President Barack Obama, have it all wrong.Who are they trying to impress.?
    And they all must be tired at Guantanamo Bay Cuba prison.!
    Guantanamo Bay Prison must not be closed.!
    It is a vital national asset.

    I think this is just one instance wherein the Obama administration has screwed up, realized it and tried to save face by reversing decisions according to the polls.

    I'm just curious - what "rights" would the Terrorists get that they shouldn't?

    The right to examine secret information and how it was gathered. In the Moussaui trial this information made it to the other side of the world in a hot second as soon as the defense got to see it.
