Happy Friday the 13th !! Now that we got the pleasantries out of the way, let’s get down to business.
Later today, Attorney General Eric Holder will announce that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the September 11 terrorist attacks, along with 4 others also involved in the attacks, will be put on trial in New York City. In past months, authorities have squashed another potential terrorist attack in the city. Now with this circus coming to New York, Homeland Security should raise the level to RED.
And just when you thought this story couldn’t get worse. The White House plans to try these terrorists in civilian courts with a criminal trial. That means that they will get the right to a fair trial, the right to a taxpayer funded attorney, the right to review all evidence against him including the classified intelligence material, the right to exclude evidence against him, including the information collected through enhanced interrogation techniques. How do you like that? With the access to possible classified material, the percentage of this information leaked through his lawyer to other terrorists increases drastically. We have had that scenario play out already. It is incredible that someone who masterminded the murder of thousands of people would have the right to get a trial like any other American. How despicable is it that the terrorist who killed thousands on 9/11 is going to have a lawyer funded by the families of those he killed? Like I have said before, everyday Obama proves why he is incompetent to serve as our Commander in Chief. Is this the doing of Barack Obama trying to appease the Muslim world and prove to them that the evil Western Empire came be nice to radical Muslims? I think so.
Wait, it gets a bit worse. The administration will also announce later today that Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, alleged to have planned the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, will get a military tribunal trial. So the terrorist who blows up New York gets to have a trial with the same rights as every American is entitled to, but the one who blew-up soldiers get a military tribunal. I don’t get it? Mohammed should never step on U.S. soil, yet Obama is under the impression that a jury in New York is going to find him guilty. Don’t be so sure Mr. President because Mohammed can easily claim that he did not receive a fair trial. Don’t be surprised if it back fires.
