The New York Times runs a piece featuring Rudy Giuliani's hooting about Eric Holder's decision to try suspected 9/11 terrorists in federal court, without once mentioning that Mr. Giuliani praised and even testified at Zacarias Moussaoui's criminal trial in Alexandria, VA.
And, like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Moussaoui isn't an American citizen either. These days he's just a permanent legal resident.
Nor was the late Timothy J. McVeigh convicted by a military tribunal.
Speaking of potential 2012 GOP presidential candidates, there's also poor old Mitt Romney, who accuses the current commander in chief of "dereliction" — a mighty loaded term in the military context — and barely warrants a notice, thanks to Sarah Palin and Oprah Winfrey.
