Retired Military Want to Try KSM in Federal Courts

Military commissions have convicted 4 people. Federal courts have convicted more than 400 terrorists since 9/11.

Retired military agrees: our nation will be stronger when we close Guantanamo. We should try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other suspected terrorists in federal courts.

Help us fight the fearmongering with facts.

Watch our video—and sign our petition below.

Dear Candidates,

I am writing to ask that you support closing Guantánamo and using our civilian courts to try terrorism suspects.

Congress should preserve the Administration’s ability to bring terrorist suspects to justice in the United States, resettle them abroad, or repatriate them as appropriate. Should you win the seat you are running for, I ask that you support efforts to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay and end military commissions.

Our federal courts have convicted 400 terrorists since 9/11. Military commissions have only convicted four, two of whom have already been released.

Please stand strong against the fear-mongering, listen to national security experts who support the decision to close Guantánamo, and use our tried and true system of federal courts to see justice served.

Guantánamo has been a stain on America’s reputation. It has undermined our values, undercut our counterterrorism efforts and squandered an opportunity to demonstrate the strength of the American justice system. If you win your office, please help us fix this and bring the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks to justice.

Thank you.
