What kind of trial will it be?

I think it comes down to this, the outcome of the trial is known to the whole world. Do you think there is a chance in hell that Obama would allow them to beat the charges. It could be said, a trial like this will show the world who we really are, and that our system is just. However those who hate us, won't trust the trial - civilian or otherwise. Those who do trust us, do so because of our record. We don't need to prove something to them.
The decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) and his fellow terrorists in federal court was a political decision pure and simple. It was an attempt to rebuke the Bush Administration to engage in tribunals, even though quite a few of the detainees will still get tribunals and not trials. It creates significant problems and legal headaches particularly with the prosecution and handling of detainees who do not get access to federal court.
