    If you're morally opposed to putting Khalid Shaikh Mohammed through a military tribunal and believe that Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to try him in civilian court is a great expression of democratic values, you ought to be up in arms about this: In your name, at President Obama's orders, our country is arbitrarily killing people in a foreign land.

    Are you trying to prove that opposing a tribunal trial is wrong,

    or that there are people with inconsistent and/or hypocritical positions in the world?
