Why is Obama putting a former child terrorist on trial in a military tribunal…

…but he won’t do the same for the 9/11 mastermind?

Make no mistake, I don’t care if  he was 15 years old when he murdered a U.S. soldier, he should hang for it. But why aren’t the worst of the terrorists tried this way? Oh, that’s right, the 9/11 terrorists can put America on the witness stand.

Omar Khadr, known as the ‘Child Soldier of Guantanamo Bay’, is accused of killing a US soldier and receiving training from al-Qaeda. Transferred to the detention camp in Cuba in 2002, aged 15, he is to be the first detainee tried under the Obama military commission. If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison. But his defence lawyers are trying to prove that none of the evidence in the case can be used because it was tainted. (“Tainted” because he was subjected to sleep deprivation?Awwww, poor baby)
