Senator Obama in 2006: Try KSM in a military tribunal

Breitbart TV dug up this old video of then Senator Obama supporting the idea of a military trial for KSM.




Obama's remarks were made during a debate over the Military Commissions Act that set up regulations in response to the Supreme Court's Hamdan decision that outlawed the tribunals because of unconstitutional procedures.

Obama assured the senators that terrorists like KSM would not receive the same rights as American criminals get, that he would certainly be tried in a military court "with all the bells and whistles."

That was then. This is now.
