Mentally UNFIT to stand trial?

Reader comment on item: Follow-up on Los Angeles' Would-Be Terrorists

Mentally UNFIT to stand trial?

Are they releasing IT from being properly prosecuted?

Who advocated on his behalf and got the "mentally unfit" accepted?

Coincidently, the only one that carries a Middle Eastern name.

Am I missing something? Who got the mentally unfit accepted? A CAIR style lawyer?
