It wasn't as wrong as measured in the cold calculus of immediate human
suffering and loss of life, but we also should hold our elected
representatives to a higher moral standard than we do terrorists.
Watergate was more than just a petty bungled burglary, for example.
I for one will relish KSM getting a fair trial, if only to see the 9/11
Troofers scramble to explain away his avowal of 9/11 as the result of
CIA torture, mind control, etc.
