    I drove up from FAY to NJ today. Nine hours in the car. Along the way I must have heard bits and pieces of about 37 different Republicans and their water-carriers pontificating about the decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in the US. What fucking morons! I swear all 37 don’t come up to 100 points on the IQ scale. Combined. The absolute dumbest “concern” was expressed by some really, really dumb congressman who wondered if Mohammed were acquitted would he be released into the US. Now why would/how could anyone even think that was a possibility? Do we have a special line at ICE for alleged terrorist masterminds who escape conviction?

    Yes. He will be acquitted and released in your living room. There. No need to worry about that any longer!

    My only concern is that it will be impossible to find 12 people who are qualified jurors. Is anyone in the NYC metropolitan area really neutral about this case?
    Sorry if that puts me in the ignorant wing-nut category.

    That might be a concern, but it’s not one the wingnuts have expressed. And in a city of 8MM, I’m sure there are 12 who could be neutral.
