KSM being tried in New York, in perspective

The announcement Friday that KSM and four others will be tried in a civilian court in NYC -- rather than in a military tribunal at Gitmo -- is welcome news.

But, Glenn Greenwald argues, don't get too excited: we're now at an officiallya multi-tiered justice system, where the government decides what kind of justice system different prisoners will get depending on where the government is sure it can get a conviction. This is hardly great news.

Meanwhile, Jim Webb is with the right wingers: don't bring those terrorists onto our soil!
