Now that the President has signed the Military Commissions Act into law, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed must be prosecuted for his involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Some have recommended Khalid Sheikh Mohammed be prosecuted after lesser, but equally dangerous terrorists are prosecuted, presumably so the new tribunal system can be tested. I strongly disagree with this approach.

The Military Commissions Act was created by legal professionals in the Administration, House and Senate and provides a structurally solid prosecutorial system. It is time Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is brought to justice.
