Krauthammer: Giving KSM the rights of an American citizen is unconscionable



Even with the best court system, Krauthammer says that this isn’t about comparing ourselves with the rest of the world, but about comparing ourselves with our traditions:

“I’m not sure that FDR, or Lincoln, or any of our war presidents, or Johnson, or Kennedy would take a combatant and give him the constitutional rights of an American citizen and give him a trial in civilian court. That doesn’t happen.”
