Poll: Almost two-thirds want miliary trial for KSM

By Eric Zimmermann – 11/16/09 05:00 PM ET

Almost two-thirds of Americans want the Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the other 9/11 plotters to receive a military trial instead of facing a civilian court, a new CNN poll finds

64% of respondents prefer the plotters to be “tried by a military court run by the U.S armed forces,” while just 34% prefer the detainees be “brought to trial in a criminal court run by the civilian judicial system.”

78% of respondents favor the death penalty for Mohammed, including 19% of respondents who said they “generall oppose” the death penalty but think it's appropriate for KSM.
