In the string of amazing decisions made during the first year of the Obama administration, nothing seems more like sheer insanity than the decision to try foreign terrorists, who have committed acts of war against the United States, in federal court, as if they were American citizens accused of crimes.
Terrorists are not even entitled to the protection of the Geneva Conventions, much less the Constitution of the United States. Terrorists have never observed, nor even claimed to have observed, the Geneva Conventions, nor are they among those covered by it.
But over and above the utter inconsistency of what is being done is the utter recklessness it represents.
The last time an attack on the World Trade Center was treated as a matter of domestic criminal justice was after a bomb was exploded there in 1993. Under the rules of American criminal law, the prosecution had to turn over all sorts of information to the defense information that told the al-Qaida international terrorist network what we knew about them and how we knew it.
This was nothing more and nothing less than giving away military secrets to an enemy in wartime something for which people have been executed, as they should have been.
Secrecy in warfare is a matter of life and death. Lives were risked and lost during World War II to prevent Nazi Germany from discovering that Britain had broken its supposedly unbreakable Enigma code and could read their military plans that were being radioed in that code.
"Loose lips sink ships" was the World War II motto in the United States. But loose lips are mandated under the rules of criminal prosecutions.

This is a full body slam of B. Hussein.
Thanks for the ping, Kaslin.
Obama and Holder are filth, anti-American pondscum. Not so much for placing terrorists on equal footing with American citizens in our system of law, but for using this heinous move as a major distraction so they can slip through legislation designed to end we the people sovereignty. Cap and tax has yet to be signed into law, and it is about to be linked to teh Copenhagen Protocols thereby placing American sovereignty under a governing body of international power. Obamacare is a hallmark of usurping the sovereignty of we the people, by extending the federal oligarchy into every aspect of your life via government run and dictated ‘health issues’. When these two are signed into law, the end of American economic resilience will be finalized and our economy will come crashing dwon in preparation for the world economic order. BUT, it requires soemthing so outrageous that it sucks attention away from the demise in prgress by the democrat party, and holding show trials of terrorists murderers in New York, with the accomapnying fears and perhaps terrorists suicide bombings should do the trick the wicked bastards are seeking.
The whole 0bama administration is filth and anti American pondscum if you ask me
You are welcome
I haven’t found one yet that wasn’t/isn’t, but I’m still researching them.
PWNED! LOL Dr Sowell eviscerates Barry again!
Thanks for the ping jaz. Another one hit out of the ballpark by Dr. Sowell.
Obama can as a private citizen make as much of a jackass of himself as he wants just as Dr. Sowell states in the article, but as President of the United States he is making us all into jackasses in the eyes of those he wants so badly to impress.
The man is quite a fool.
This was singularly and succinctly well put by Dr. Sowell.
If Bush had had any balls, he would have ordered a military tribunal to be held as soon as the CIA had determined that the terrorists had no more useful intelligence.
Bumpitty- bumpitty -bump -bump!
I thought the deepest bow was reserved for Larry Sinclair.....
People Holder consulted about holding civil trials in NYC:
1. His Wife
2. His Brother
People Holder did not consult.
1. The President.
2. The Vice President.
3. Holder on one of the MSM shows said that the only people 4. The Congressional
5. The Judicial Branch
8. National Security Advisor
9. Secretary of Defense
10.Governor of New York
IOW: We are to believe that Holder consulted mo other human being that has any position of responsability in the government about creating the trial of the melinnium in New York City?
Holder is either very stupid, very dangerous, just lying or all three.
Thank you ... as always.
Get over your BDS
Tom Sowell is SHEER BRILLIANCE!
May he live to be 200!!!!!!!!!
