Source: 9/11 Terror Detainees Face Trial in N.Y. Friday, November 13, 2009

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.

Obama was hired on to attend meetings, preside over barbeques on the White House lawn, do parties, and go to fancy restaurants with his wife.

I assure you Eric's boss is someone else.

This allows the terrorists attorneys to question our methods and practices of collecting information. They will get to see top secret documents.

Ft. Hood will be the first of many terror acts here in the USA

The blind sheik’s attorney, Lynn Stewart, was convicted of carrying terror messages for him. She’s still walking free.

Like the Lockerbie bomber, she is supposedly near death, for YeaRS now, from cancer.

Put him in Gen Pop while awaiting trial.

Say what you want about our prison population but if you think a 9/11 conspirator could survive 72 hours in maximum security? I highly doubt that in NYC even in the criminal class that someone wasn’t touched by 9/11 enough to vent these clowns with a few extra holes.

I doubt the guards would care much either. “We’re just going to go on break now. By the way, this guy is on trial for blowing up the WTC. Feel free to make introductions as we go get some coffee and have a smoke for say... 20 minutes.”

As for our AG and President. You are both unfit to hold office. May God have mercy on your souls because I never will.

This is truly a kick in the gut, right after the Fort Hood massacre.

What must the people of NYC think of this? What’s to stop Mumbai-like attacks during the trial...border security?! (That was a joke)

My greatest fear has been their taking over a school. Imagine the horror and terror as parents appear on TV begging and pleading for their child’s life.


(Speaking of Mumbai-—there’s a special on HBO next week that sounds well worth recording. “Terror in Mumbai”.)

Dangerous game here. They’ll have the best lawyers in the country, and most of the evidence may be thrown out. There’s a slight chance they’ll walk free.

I venture that the majority think it’s just great! After all, it’s been 8 years now. Time to move on, right?

The majority in New York HATE George Bush.

The majority in New York voted for the odious anti-War-on-Terror, anti-self-defense, “village people” Hillary and Schumer as their sentators.

The overwhelming majority in New York voted for 0bama.

I have detected absolutely no traces from that quarter of “buyer’s remorse”.

Not so sure. NY is filled with left wing loons.

The prisoners are pretty much co-opted to become muslims.

We are doomed. And notice how the coward leaves the country when this is announced.

Also announced today, the departure of Gregg Craig. He is being replaced by Bauer, husband of Anita Dunn.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

I don’t agree. Muslim is a fast growing religion in today’s prisons. Give them a week in an American prison and they will be leading the prayers 5 times a day to their converts.

The reason that the mosques and skyscraper were seized was a judicial decision that came out on Tuesday in a long-running money-laundering case against the individual who was head of the “foundation” that owned these things. Charges were filed in December, 2008 and the judge decided against the defendant this week, which automatically meant that these buildings were up for seizure.

I think the timing was coincidental. Because the case was already underway when Hussein took over, Holder couldn’t stop it and can’t intervene publicly to stop the seizure (but I bet you that he’ll manage to stop it somehow).

No, I think they’ve been quietly “mulling,” as the press likes to call Hussein’s plotting, how to try their precious terrorists in the way that would be most insulting to the American people, and they came up with the idea of giving the poor babies an ordinary criminal court trial in the very city that was so cruel to these innocent little Muslim boys, who were just looking for their virgins...

Don't you remember? This administration expunged the term terrorist from its vocabulary.

These guys are no longer terrorists. They are mass murderers and will be tried as such.

They'll probably get off if our law enforcement didn't follow procedures to a tee.

If I was the judge, I would toss these cases out on these two pretenses:

1. Defendants were denied right to speedy trial.
2. Crimes were not committed within US.

For individuals who have never set foot inside the US, bringing them here for trial in domestic civilian court is a gargantuan mistake. They should be tried by military tribunal outside the US.

Shi-ite.

The entire trial is going to turn into a seminar on Islam.
They couldn’t have asked for a bigger stage.

And, I ask again, does anyone believe Greg Craig won’t be whispering in defense counsel’s ear? He’s had 10 months in the White House, pouring over every scintilla of evidence the gov’t has against them. Worth a goldmine, wouldn’t you say?

A Friday bombshell of the worst kind. This starts woith trying to close Gitmo and ends with the circus that will be a trial.

On the agenda for 2010:
- Trial in NY for 9/11 terrorists (liberal lawyers to defend)
- Nationalizing U.S. Healthcare
- Cap & Tax
- Withdrawing from Afghanistan
- Increase in taxes
- Increasing the defecit

How’d you like to be a Democrat up for election in 2010?!?

If you believe that 9/11 was a plot hatched by the Bush Administration (or if you wish to perpetuate that conspiracy theory), then it’s against your interest for these guys to be found guilty. This is the usual Obama set-up.

Justice should have been exacting and swift for the Islamic Jihad Terrorist POS, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, long ago...and by military tribunal. Just as soon as we thought we had all the G2 (intel) out of him.

Now this individual, pictured below on the left of the photo, is using him as his own political pawn and tool to justify civilian court for those whose very appearance there will be a travesty. Disgusting.

I hope those in power who let this Quisling ascend to the highest office in the land are pleased. An investigation into his background, his campaign finances and activities in Chicago and elsewhere should have been launched and the results leaked to a vigilant press. Unfortunately, those who now complain about what this man is doing to the CIA and the military and our government had the power to actually do something to avert the travesty/trauma this Islamic Quisling is now inflicting upon us.

What will be left of this country when this Trojan Horse Precedent has repaid all of his Islamist oil supporters, his SDS/Communist-Socialist Party friends, his NWO/CFR connections?

Survive? They’ll thrive. Who’s going to stop them, the Aryan Brotherhood? They’re more likely to join them than take on the islamists.

The Muslims have been working on taking over the prisons and turning them into recruiting/training centers for years. Nobody will cross them in the joint. Nobody.

With respect, the changes are far greater than “slight” that these individuals will either be found not guilty or a mistrial declared for failure of the government to disclose all relevant evidence. O.J. Simpson got off when the evidence against him was overwhelming. We should not be under any illusion that the prosecution will be able to bring forth witnesses to put the finger on these people, when some of them may be dead or whereabouts unknown. There’s probably some illiterate goatherder living in a hut in Yemen, who provided key evidence, who will never be brought to the US to testify.
