9/11 Terrorists to be Tried in New York: No Evidence Obtained Through Coercion Admissable
Breitbart.com via BigGovernment.com ^ | 9/13/2009

The alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks will be tried in a civilian court blocks from where Al-Qaeda hijackers crashed two airliners into the World Trade Center, the US government announced.

Attorney General Eric Holder said prosecutors would seek the death penalty against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four suspected co-plotters, who are held at Guantanamo Bay but will be moved to a New York prison ahead of their trial.

"After eight years of delay, those allegedly responsible for the attacks of September 11 will finally face justice," Holder said, without giving a date.

"They will be brought to New York to answer to their alleged crimes in a courthouse just blocks away from where the Twin Towers once stood."

Five more Guantanamo detainees, including Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, accused of plotting the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole destroyer off Yemen that killed 17 US sailors, will be tried before military commissions.

The military tribunals were heavily criticized after being set up by former president George W. Bush in late 2001, but have since been reformed to grant defendants more rights to evidence and bar evidence obtained through torture.

The announcement, key to President Barack Obama's plans to shutter Guantanamo by January, was blasted by families of the nearly 3,000 victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

"To allow a terrorist and a war criminal the opportunity of having US constitutional protections is a wrong thing to do and it's never been done before," said Ed Kowalski of the 9/11 Families for a Secure America Foundation.

Peter Gadiel, who lost his 23-year-old son James in the World Trade Center's north tower, accused Obama of trying to establish a "show trial" that would end up being "a circus."

Just like Rush said today, this is Obama’s way of putting the United States on trial. These terrorists will get off scott free and all of the terrorist countries will learn our techniques of getting information out of terrorists. Just great, hey Obama, why don’t you just put bulls eyes on all of us and get it over with already

There’s only two motivations for such to be brought before civilian courts.

1. To force the disclosure of classified materials to the prisoners and their lawyers. This allows that classified info to be given over to our enemy, in part or in whole.

2. To grant freedom to the prisoners because it is, all too often, impossible to play the CSI game at point of capture, so no court appropriate evidence can be gathered.

He’s probably just doing this because such cases mean huge ratings for CNN.

We tried using civil courts for terrorists in Canada. Look up “Air India Flight 182” and “trial”; if you want to know how all this is likely to turn out. It ain’t pretty.

......and yet I’ve been asking people to try to move towards civil disorder and national strikes and sit ins against Obama and no one wants to move..Do have any idea what this will do to us having a trial for this scumbag in NY City? Do you ? They will be the victims and America will be on trial. Some snot nosed NYU lawyer and civil liberties union fagot will be drooling at the chance to disgrace this country on national tv...But no of you want to storm DC I give up ..maybe we all deserve to live as slaves to a government.

What is going on in the minds of said NYU lawyers. Do they really consider thwarting the justice that 3,000 of their fellow countrymen deserve to be a feather in their caps? They’d better hope that their terrorist “friends” don’t come back and nuke the place.

You are right and so is Limbaugh, its about putting America on trial, the CIA, letting the world know how the CIA operates, dismantling the CIA and the military. They also run the probability of letting these people walk and subsequent lawsuits.

These should be military tribunals off the soil of America. These guys ate international war criminals and should be tried on that criteria. To bring them into civil courts and apply those laws does not make ANY sense as they never were Americans and never were. These courts and the rules are intended for that. Do we apply the laws of football to baseball? Although they are sports the are different sports and with different rules. To apply the irrelevant rules gives you an irrelevant outcome.

But, I guess if Aliens can have Obama amnesty, so can the Guantanamo boys! And we can have an illegal alien president!!

Roll out the carpet! Give them university scholarships! Break out the champagne for a welcome to America party!

Too many Assclowns in the White House!

NYU has the worst of the worst Marxist America haters going . They are falling all over them selves try for the shot to be famous for getting the Muslim piece of garbage free and get the chance to Bush bash and mock America.
I would hope thousands would riot but we just take all Obama and his Marxist cabal dish out. It’s a cakewalk for Obama , he meest ZERO opposition. Pelosi actually laughs at us . Don’t people see who Obama has hired , who he gives power to . I’m disgusted with this country . I though if this day ever came people would be up in arms..LITERALLY ...nothing..They fell on the floor laughing at the Tea Parties ..We need to get their attention the hard way . Jefferson told us there will be times when the tree of democracy will need to be watered ..Its here and we’re just chattin about it . Time has all but run out.

As the father of 5 adults who were all raised to believe in God & country I can tell you this. We are in the beginning phases of punishment and warnings from God. There are 2 generations of Americans now so addicted to porn, video games and self gratification that they ignore the world around them. My grandchildren will be the 3rd generation and their parents for the most part believe in an America where freedom of perversion is a right. This does not come from them as individuals but from what they perceive as guidance.Print media, Internet and motion pictures are all a constant visual onslaught that has warped their minds. These are good minds with the proper guidance at home but you cannot shut out the worlds influence. The war will have to be felt by these individuals right here at home before they understand the price of not only freedom but moral responsibility.
