Terror Charges Against US Citizen

The US is considering terror charges for American-born Yemeni cleric al-Awlaki.

The Obama administration is considering filing the first criminal charges against radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in case the CIA fails to kill him and he's is captured alive in Yemen.
The decision continues the White House's strategy of fighting terrorism both in court and on the battlefield.
Al-Awlaki, a U.S. and Yemeni citizen born in New Mexico, has inspired a wave of attempted attacks against the U.S. and has become al-Qaida's leading English-speaking voice for recruiting and motivating terrorists. Counterterrorism officials said al-Awlaki, since mid-2009, has become a key operational figure who selects targets and gives orders.

So... military or civilian trial for him? Your comments below!
