Argument: Military tribunal would have been faster with KSM
Charles Krauthammer. "Travesty in New York." Real Clear Politics. November 20, 2009: "Alternatively, Holder tried to make the case that he chose a civilian New York trial as a more likely venue for securing a conviction. An absurdity: By the time Obama came to office, KSM was ready to go before a military commission, plead guilty and be executed. It's Obama who blocked a process that would have yielded the swiftest and most certain justice."
