Michelle Malkin has come out in favor of fair trials for convicted terrorists, argues for their right to see evidence used against them at trial, and hopes the International Criminal Court hears their case. Of course, these standards do not apply to the United States government, in which case she supports indefinite detention of a journalist without charges, and accuses him of being a terrorist on the word of the military.

It is, as Glenn Greenwald explains, "beyond satire."
