If you were concerned the trail of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City would be a circus, don’t be disappointed, there is still hope. The self-proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington D.C., along with four co-conspirators have been charged with 2,976 counts of murder at a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay, and it’s all that we expected.
If getting tough on the bad guys is creating terrorists, then so be it … but using the lefty logic of the day … why yes he is, if we apply the GITMO standard. Hat Tip to Steve for pointing this one out. Read more
Too much. I know the lefties want to close GITMO, and they know most Americans are vehemently opposed to bringing these thugs to America, mostly because they are … ummm … terrorists intent on destroying America. So how else can you sell a plan that Americans don’t want to Americans. Tell them moving the “detainees” to a prison in Illinois is a great JOBS program. Oh brother.
Just finished watching CNN where they just concluded a debate on whether bringing these “detainees” to the US will grant them new legal rights they did not have at GITMO. The conclusion was, no one really knows although the speculation is yes, they will. Wouldn’t you think this would be something they would settle before they bring them here. But then again, we do need jobs? Unbelievable.
Just getting around to posting this but it is worth listening too. Neil Cavuto interviewing Diane McDaniel’s, who lost her son when AQ bombed the USS Cole in 2000. She turned down an invitation given to 9/11 and Cole families, to meet with President Obama last week after this happened.
The meeting took place a day after a senior Pentagon judge dropped charges against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, an al-Qaida suspect held at Guantanamo and accused of masterminding the USS Cole bombing. New charges against al-Nashiri could be brought later, and he will remain in custody for the time being.
A legal move late Thursday by Susan J. Crawford, the top legal authority for military trials at Guantanamo, marked the last active war crimes case there.
The Obama administration is reviewing the system to make sure the 245 suspects remaining there are given international and U.S. legal rights. That review largely will determine whether the terror suspects should be tried in U.S. courts or released to other countries.
Understandably, she’s not happy …
