KSM: Thanks Hussein,
I can’t wait to tie your courts into a knot
That’s right folks, this trial is not about getting justice, but about an indictment against the Bush years that kept America safe for the past eight years, that is, up until the Fort Hood massacre by a Islamic terrorist, Major Jihad Nidal Hasan. Just you wait, any evidence gained by waterboarding this creep will be not admissable by the court and most likely any other statement he has made in Gitmo and elsewhere, will be stricken from the record.
It would not surprise if KSM were to walk and end up suing the US government for damages. Barack Obama is doing massive damage to US security efforts by allowing sensitive information to be seen by KSM and his team of lawyers, which will totally disrupt the US’s methods and means it uses in tracking terrorist suspects. This is utter foolishness. KGS
VIA: M. MALKIN :” It will be a soapbox for al-Qaeda’s case against America.”
Self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees will be sent to New York to face trial in a civilian federal court, an Obama administration official said Friday.
The official said Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce the decision later in the morning.
The official is not authorized to discuss the decision before the announcement, so spoke on condition of anonymity.
Bringing such notorious suspects to U.S. soil to face trial is a key step in President Barack Obama’s plan to close the terror suspect detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Obama initially planned to close the detention center by Jan. 22, but the administration is no longer expected to meet that deadline.
It is also a major legal and political test of Obama’s overall approach to terrorism. If the case suffers legal setbacks, the administration will face second-guessing from those who never wanted it in a civilian courtroom. And if lawmakers get upset about notorious terrorists being brought to their home regions, they may fight back against other parts of Obama’s agenda.
