U.S. Risk Loosing Conviction of Khalid Sheik Mohammed

thecheers.org    2007-03-16 17:21:25    

If Khalid Sheik Mohammed was indeed responsible for the 9/11 attacks as well as the 'shoe-bomb' attempt, he should be tried in the U.S. proper, not through some illegal tin-pot military process that means nothing.

 

 

Khalid Sheik Mohammed Admissions Questionable.

 

While there appears to be very little doubt that the person involved is a 'nasty piece of work', the admissions made by alleged terrorist Khalid Sheik Mohammed in relation to the various terrorist activities that he allegedly has been involved in raises doubts about the processes through which the admissions were obtained.

 

Khalid Sheik Mohammed is currently held at the Guantanamo Bay concentration camp and is due to appear before the illegally constituted U.S. Military Commission.

Prior to his detention at Guantanamo, the CIA, America's own terrorist organisation, held him in various 'places of detention' in Pakistan for three years following which he was eventually transported to Guantanamo through via various 'extraordinary rendition' processes.

 

These processes are illegal under international law.

 

Questions that must be answered by the U.S. are numerous.

 

If Khalid Sheik Mohammed was indeed responsible for the 9/11 attacks as well as the 'shoe-bomb' attempt, he should be tried in the U.S. proper, not through some illegal tin-pot military process that means nothing.

 

We need to know what methods were used as to obtain the admissions, this given the fact that the CIA terrorist organisation uses torture to obtain such admissions.

 

We need to know what processes took place as to extradite Khalid Sheik Mohammed to Guantanamo, this given the fact that Guantanamo Bay is an illegal facility and that therefore normal extradition processes would not have been legally possible.

 

And we also need to know who gave permission to transport this person and under what legal process.

 

As far as I can see it, while it may well be that Khalid Sheik Mohammed may be responsible for some very serious crimes, the illegal processes through which he was detained, processes and then transported, renders any conviction of this person virtually useless in international law as well as U.S. law.

 

Whatever this man has participated in, he is still entitled to fair and indeed legal processes, regardless.
