Arrest raises issue of where to try terror suspects

John Yoo quoted in The Wall Street Journal, March 7, 2013 (registration required)

“It does and should reopen the debate about the proper place to try high-ranking Al-Qaeda members,” said John Yoo…. Mr. Yoo said if there is a rush to send suspects such as Mr. Abu Ghaith to civilian courts, it could inhibit the government’s ability to fully exploit any intelligence gathered through his capture. Also, a civilian trial could expose classified intelligence-gathering techniques to the U.S.’s enemies, Mr. Yoo said.
