I believe that the trial of a Gitmo detainee for Cole bombing is bound to turn into a media circus. Starting with US Wants Death Penalty for Alleged USS Cole Plotter.
It has all the elements that the loony left will eat up. Allegations of torture, of a "coerced" confession, of a lack of due process, etc, etc, and the death penalty.
Remember- before it gets too out of hand- the 17 sailors who died and their families:
