If Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack H. Obama argue that an American federal district court has jurisdiction over Khalid Sheikh Mohammed -- all of whose alleged crimes were committed outside the United States -- simply because he plotted to kill Americans... then would they also argue that the same court has jurisdiction to arrest and try Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?
After all, he certainly plotted to send his Qods Force minions to kill Americans in Iraq; and they have successfully done so.
Do Holder and the Obamacle really want to open this kettle of worms?

Don't they also have to agree that Ahmadinejad, or Hugo Chavez, or any civilian court in the world has the right to arrest and try Obama, for killing Afghans or whomever?
