He rocks. This is an awesome observation. From Loewenstein/ [and lawyer] Greenwald:

The news that Washington will try some of the alleged 9/11 masterminds in New York is welcome news and yet, writes Salon’s Glenn Greenwald, don’t buy the spin:

…We’re now formally creating a multi-tiered justice system for accused Muslim terrorists where they only get the level of due process consistent with the State’s certainty that it will win.  Mohammed gets a real trial because he confessed and we’re thus certain we can win in court; since we’re less certain about al-Nashiri, he’ll be denied a trial and will only get a military commission; others will be denied any process entirely and imprisoned indefinitely.
