OUTRAGE: 9/11 Suspects To Face Trial In New York

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!

WASHINGTON -- 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.

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.

I hate to disagree with you, but this is one of those times when I must. I understand your trepidation at allowing these terrorists on our soil and into our courts. However, I must ask the question: who better to sit in judgment against them than the very people who suffered the crimes they committed?

I sincerely hope the trials do not turn into a media circus, but I believe that is a risk we must take, in order for justice to be served, in the American way.

We have never given prisoners of war access to our civilian court system and this has served us well for over two hundred years so why would we change that now. This trial is trampling on established traditions that have always worked and now to change them to gain favor with other countries and the far left in this country is sheer madness. It appears that most of the people who suffered the most from these attacks oppose such a move and they, yes they would rather the military sit in judgement on these bastards so that is a lame arguemnt.

Read the letter to Obama and sign it, protesting the terrorists being brought to the US.

Proudly added my name to letter. Impeach Holder and B. Hussein Obama.

NEVER allow the enmies of this nation to enjoy constitutional safety...


This is the action of an Ilamic SUPPORTER, not a TRUE American president...

Ron Russell said...

You've got it right Fred. The Constitution is for Americans and welcome visitors and certainly not for an enemy captured on the battlefields of the world. If shit like this keeps up just shoot all the bastards and save us millions and millions of dollars. How many million will this cost us. Obama is over in Asia now getting ready to beg for more money from a country(China) which in the end will destroy us just because of all this political correctness and the weakness he is showing in the face of the enemy.

This is sheer madness! He'll get to see classified information that he can then give back to the other towel heads!

Do you find it interesting that this decision was made/released just a little over a week after the Fort Hood massacre? Talk about bad timing. Or rubbing salt into the soldier of Fort Hood's wounds. Geesh. They could of waited just a little while longer.

Anyway, I agree with you. This guy is an enemy combatant, non-US citizen, therefore he is not entitled to being tried under our laws.

There is something else here. I don't know what it is but something is just not right. It makes no sense for Obama and his administration would do this.

If I didn't know better I would say we are witnessing Obama's split loyalties.

Ron Russell said...

I think too, Dominique that the Obama administration wants to use this trial to condemn the water-boarding tactics of the Bush years---a military trial would not have afforded the same opportunity.

Matt said...

I think that is more about putting the Bush administration on trial. I think the defense will be able to put the focus on how detainees were treated, rather than what they did. In the end, it'll just further embolden our enemies.

Unknown said...

I think there is a more insideous reason behind this decision. Considering these men already pled guilty I think that it is the Bush administration that is actually going to be put on trial here. Obama wants to highlight what was done to these men and the policies that led to their confessions. These men are not the true targets of this trial.
He will be weakening our national security in the name of appeasing the far left, it is criminal.

Teresa said...

I am outraged. This is abominable. Obama hates America. This proves it. These terrorists captured on the battlefield should be put on trial in front of a military tribunal/commission. I just hope this doesn't turn up like O.J.'s trial. Obama is undermining our military effort overseas. He is the most disgraceful commander-in-chief EVER!!!

These trials are going to turn into a media circus, turn into a big show trial against the Bush administration, instead of focusing on the real objective, which is to bring these terrorists to justice and execute them. If we had these pussies in charge back when WWII was going on, Hitler would have been able to expand his operation to kill more people.

It's not often that I do this, but I wanted to make another comment on your article. After doing a lot of reading and watching how this situation is playing out, I think I need to retract my earlier comment. I am beginning to see why these people should never be given access to our civilian court system.
