The horse trading Washington is so famous for is in full swing.

Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that if the White House agrees to try self-described 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a military tribunal he would press fellow Republicans to vote to shut down Guantanamo Bay.

The the issue has been a matter of intense discussion at the White House and at the Justice Department, but so far no decision has been made.

Graham also said on the CBS show a new legal system needs to be created to try dangerous detainees.

“We need a legal system that gives due process to the detainee but also understands they didn’t rob a liquor store,” he said.
