Senator Lindsey Graham on Sunday outlined his plan to help President Obama close Guantánamo if the administration agrees to abandon a civilian New York terror trial for 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in favor of a military tribunal.

On Sunday, two moderate senators defended President Obamas apparent willingness to reconsider his administrations decision to use a civilian New York terror trial for the admitted mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
The first, Senator Lindsey Graham (R) of South Carolina, is seen as the architect behind the Obama administrations potential change in plans. He has promised to help Obama close the Guantánamo Bay detention facility if Obama gives up his plans of trying Mohammed and other sensitive terror suspects in a civilian court.
We need a legal system that gives due process to detainees while recognizing that there are sensitivities to national security in such a case, said Senator Graham, a former military lawyer, on CBSs Face the Nation.

Thats right Lindsey, stand by your man.....
Thanks for reelecting him, people of South Carolina. ‘preesh.
When is SC going to scrap Graham?
He must be the mamma... the receiver.
The bigger question is when is Ariz. going to scrap McCain.
If McCain defeats J.D. in August, he will likely win re-election, and we conservatarians will have to face 2+ years of his wrath, with Graham and Obama by his side.
Think about it.
Southern belles do stand by their men.
Thanks for the theme song.
Just shut up, grahamnesty. Obozo would have to scrap the NY terror trial anyway. When your enemy is shooting himself in the foot, you don’t take the gun out of his hands.
I wouldn’t bet against McCain. Tough to beat incumbents - and Juan is a seasoned campaigner. Then again, I thought the Colts would win the Super Bowl...
Lindsay Graham (R-I-N-O) needs to go away.
He’s a JAGass.
What a sell - out!
Senator Lindsey Graham, selling out America every chance he can get.
“Just shut up, grahamnesty. Obozo would have to scrap the NY terror trial anyway. When your enemy is shooting himself in the foot, you donât take the gun out of his hands.”
BINGO. This is obvious to everyone, except Graham.
Obama is giving away nothing, and Graham is providing him with the cover of Republican support for closing Gitmo. Graham needs a keeper,
Graham has no principles. Why on earth does he continue to get elected?
He should of course be voted out in November (or whenever he next comes up for re-election), but that alone isn't sufficiently punitive for the redress of his crimes against America, and his collusion with the O'Bunga Communist Cabal.
He should be deported to Venezuela or France, and forbidden ever to return to America. As should the whole stinking bunch of them.
The first name fits.
