Obama & Holder Backpedalling From Civilian Trial for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?

After backing off of a Manhattan civilian trial for suspected 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the Obama Administration and Justice Department may be backing completely away from the prospect of a civilian trial and have Mohammed go in front of a military tribunal.

Discussions on where to hold the trial have not concluded and the recommendation
has not been made formally to the president, officials told the Associated Press
on condition of anonymity.
The recommendation is expected to be put before Obama soon...

Look for detention facility for the trial to take place somewhere in Illinois as a favor to Obama's political allies and benefactors- this despite other states like Michigan practically begging for out-of-state prisoners to fill up nearly-vacant prisons in their state.

  1. In an effort to boost his favorable ratings among fellow Democrats President Obama would like to announce that he was for a civilian trial of KSM, before he was against it. Got to wonder what Clinton retread he has waiting on the wings to replace Holder once he ceremoniously falls on his own sword.
