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.
