Mr. Cole's comment "The UN and NATO recognized the US right to respond militarily in self-defense," makes me wonder which Constitution he is reading, if any. Neither the UN's nor NATO's recognition is necessary--or even relevant--to the US's right to defend itself.

Since the federal courts have some experience dealing with the earlier attack on the World Trade Center, I see no reason why they can't handle this trial. The object of any trial is to obtain justice, and federal courts can conduct a fair trial.
