Eric Holder with the blessing of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, the far leftest President of the United, States today slapped the families and the people of the United States in the face by giving full constitutional rights to prisoners of war captured on foreign battlefields by affording them the same rights you and I have. By allowing these terrorist, these Islamic jihadist, these madmen a public trial in our courts this president, a radical himself has given these terrorist a public forum from which to spew their hate and contempt for America. We have already had more than enough of that from the hate-America crowd who occupy the seats of power and now we must face the ultimate insult and have these killers of thousands of innocent Americans sit in the federal courthouse just a few blocks from ground zero with their high priced attorneys (probably members of the ACLU) objecting to every move made by the prosecution. Insults will be hurled at Americans, secrets will be revealed and the trial will last for months and possibly years. The trial of the century will not be a confirmation of the fairness of our judicial system, but a tragic comedy played out in front of the 9/11 families to the cheers of our enemies. Thank you Barack HUSSEIN Obama for extending your hand to those who hands have killed thousands of Americans.For All You Terrorist!
Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce the decision later in the morning.
President Obama, speaking in Tokyo, said he will insist that Mohammed be subject to "the most exacting demands of justice" and called the move both a prosecutorial and a national security decision.
"I'm absolutely convinced that Khalid Sheik Mohammad will be subject to the most exacting demands of justice. The American people insist on it. My administration will insist on it," he said.
Bringing such notorious suspects to U.S. soil to face trial is a key step in 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.
The New York case may also force the court system to confront a host of difficult legal issues surrounding counterterrorism programs begun after the 2001 attacks, including the harsh interrogation techniques once used on some of the suspects while in CIA custody. The most severe method -- waterboarding, or simulated drowning -- was used on Mohammed 183 times in 2003, before the practice was banned.
Holder will also announce that a major suspect in the bombing of the USS Cole, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, will face justice before a military commission, as will a handful of other detainees to be identified at the same announcement, the official said.
