Posted on 01/18/2010 12:10:02 PM PST by Nachum
Top administration officials are getting nervous that they may not be able to proceed with one of their most controversial national-security moves: trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other accused 9/11 conspirators in federal court in New York City. Last November Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. portrayed the trial as a way to showcase the American justice system to the world and to accelerate President Obamas stalled plans to shut down the U.S. prison at Guantánamo Bay. But because of shifting political winds in Congress, the trial is now potentially in jeopardy, a senior official, who did not want to be named talking about a sensitive situation, tells Newsweek.

His worst decision was running for office in the first place, but this IS a close second.
“pick up enough support from moderate Democrats to prevail”
No such thing as moderate Democrats. This is a myth perpetrated by the MSM. There are only Democrats who are occasionally held in check by political realities.
I don’t have enough hands to count Obama’s worst decision yet.
LOL! I will really enjoy watching the Euroweenies, Code Pink and the National Lawyahs Guild jumping all over their heads!
“No such thing as moderate Democrats. This is a myth...”
True, very true.
But there are Democrats who are cowards. Those we can depend on to turn, because they are afraid of their own constituents, and vote with Republicans.
Not the greatest of situations, I know, but hey! You play the hand you’re dealt.
Obama made a decision?
LOL .... Those rotters Holder and Obama bit off more than they can chew
This cannot be said often enough! Should the GOP manage to regain Congress at any point in the future, I want it tattooed backward on their foreheads so it's the first thing they see each and every morning!
Every decision by Zer0 is capable of being the worst decision.
I am more interested in finding the way to get the right decision - to impeach and convict him - of high crimes in shredding our Constitution, unlike any before.
Are these people nuts? There are guys in the joint that would pass sentence on KSM for a couple packs of smokes.
