Dershowitz might well be right. There is absolutely no telling what a jury will do and the federal procedural issues (aka "technicalities") are always in play.
From the minute they found him alive, I was hoping he'd go directly to enemy combatant status and be held in federal government custody without trial for an indefinite period of time--as is provided for by statute. Sadly, this has not happened.
We're a great country, but we too often overemphasize the exception and discriminate against the rule.
My views have No Movement Clauses.
