Justice?

Press Sec Gibbs on the likely execution of KSM,
"Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is going to meet justice and he's going to meet his maker," said President 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."
And if found not guilty, the US will hold him anyways as an enemy combatant.

How this kind of show trial can be called Justice, and how it will be seen as a positive reflection on American values, I'm at a total loss to see.

KSM belongs in Gitmo for the duration. When AQ defeated, and the fatwa of peace declared, we can send KSM to a War Crimes Tribunal.

Don't degrade the criminal justice system with a show trial and execution.
