9/11 Mastermind Will Be Tried In Civilian Court – In NYC

This is wrong on so many levels.  Not only will Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the others be afforded all of the rights of a U.S. citizen facing trial, but their defense teams will have all discoverable evidence handed over to them which will surely include sensitive intelligence information.  And if that isn’t bad enough, Mohammed and the others’ public trial (and repeated focus on “torture”) will surely be used as a recruiting tool for the Jihad.  The trial of a terrorist who has admitted he was the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks which took the lives of 3000 innocent human beings will likely take on a circus-like atmosphere.  What a slap in the face to the families of the victims.

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.

The official said Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce the decision later in the morning.

The official is not authorized to discuss the decision before the announcement, so spoke on condition of anonymity.

Bringing such notorious suspects to U.S. soil to face trial is a key step in President Barack 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.

Another Friday news dump.  Barry was conveniently on the other side of the world making excuses about his indecision on Afghanistan and blathering about climate change when this news hit.

Elections have consequences.  This is by far – in my opinion – the most appalling decision to come out of the Obama administration.  Yet.

  1. This has so many pitfalls for the Won in it I can’t count them all. The lawyers and civil libetarians will have a field day with this. KSM standing up in court and proclaiming his terrorist blather. How can you try some in civilian court and others in tribunals because of the “certainty of the outcome?” The number lawsuits filed by the defendants lawyers will crush the judicial system. This could take years.

  2. “Mastermind” is the title this “alleged” mega POS dog turd gave himself. I prefer to call it something most foul expelled from the nether regions of stan.

  3. And what is the most disgraceful aspect is that, now, KSM will have the opportunity to turn this whole deal into a political sideshow.

    Well played, Captain Awesome.

  4. Rudy Giuliani is right.

    Procedurally this trial has the potential to be an absolute nightmare. Even if the worst case scenario of an acquittal or hung jury fails to materialize, I suspect the Obama administration is going to regret this decision…then somehow try to blame Bush for it.

  5. We are back (as I expected) to the idea of terrorism as a law enforcement issue. How Clintonian! Good grief I wish that Bush was still president.

    “My God what have we done?” Putting Obama into the oval office is similar to giving your 10 year old the keys to your car.
