USS Cole Mom Sorry She Voted For Obama

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 …

    This is not really a big deal, they stopped all trial because they want to come up with a better way to process these prisoners. The man will be re-charged and tried at a later date. Big deal.

    I just hope that sending them home is not Obama’s “better way” to process these monsters.
