Are you kidding me?! Who in the hell is running this country?
Khalid Sheik Mohammed -- the self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks -- and four co-defendants will be tried in federal court in New York instead of a military commission, a federal official said Friday morning.
This is a very bad, very dangerous decision. Stop for a moment and imagine the circus that this will be. How long before KSM lawyers up, with some of the best New York lawyers no doubt, and half the evidence is tossed out. As soon as he gets here he'll be the grateful recipient of a host of Constitutional rights.
For the record, the 9/11 families are against this and believe that these guys should be tried in military courts. They have appealed, fruitlessly it would seem, to Obama not to bring them to the United States or provide them United States Constitutional rights, "a social compact of which they are not a part, do not recognize, and which they seek to destroy."
Like I said last night, every day it's a new ambush by this administration. Your world just became a whole lot less safe today.
