A “must read” of the day: Mary Katharine Ham’s article about the reaction of 9/11 victims’ families to the Holder decision on the KSM trial. Very moving. Sample:
“Peter Regan–who lost his dad, a New York firefighter, on 9/11–is disturbed by the plan on several fronts. After 9/11, the then 20-year-old joined the Marines, serving two tours in Iraq before coming back home to follow in his father’s footsteps in the fire department. The possibility that they may face trial in civilian courts means suspected terrorists captured on the battlefield may have to be informed of their right to counsel and to remain silent. I just couldn’t imagine,” Regan says. “We’re soldiers and Marines and sailors. It’s not our job. We’re not cops. We learn Miranda rights once we come back if we want to pursue that career.””
