Civilian Trial for KSM

Can some one explain why Justice Department is not advancing the argument that Bush administration gave up the idea of a "war on terror". The minute they decided that the Geneva Convention did not apply they were effectively arguing that it is not a war.
 All those criticizing the idea of a civil trial should be asked to explain why were these people not treated as Prisoners of War with the usual protections of the treaties that we signed on to.

Re: Civilian Trial for KSM

Al Qaeda is not a signatory to the Geneva Accords, so there's no reason to even apply them to then anyway.
