Senator Lindsey Graham on Sunday outlined his plan to help President Obama close Guantánamo if the administration agrees to abandon a civilian New York terror trial for 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in favor of a military tribunal.
BY MARK SAPPENFIELD
On Sunday, two moderate senators defended President Obamas apparent willingness to reconsider his administrations decision to use a civilian New York terror trial for the admitted mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
The first, Senator Lindsey Graham (R) of South Carolina, is seen as the architect behind the Obama administrations potential change in plans. He has promised to help Obama close the Guantánamo Bay detention facility if Obama gives up his plans of trying Mohammed and other sensitive terror suspects in a civilian court.
We need a legal system that gives due process to detainees while recognizing that there are sensitivities to national security in such a case, said Senator Graham, a former military lawyer, on CBSs Face the Nation.

Thats right Lindsey, stand by your man.....
Thanks for reelecting him, people of South Carolina. ‘preesh.
When is SC going to scrap Graham?
He must be the mamma... the receiver.
The bigger question is when is Ariz. going to scrap McCain.
If McCain defeats J.D. in August, he will likely win re-election, and we conservatarians will have to face 2+ years of his wrath, with Graham and Obama by his side.
Think about it.
Southern belles do stand by their men.
Thanks for the theme song.
Just shut up, grahamnesty. Obozo would have to scrap the NY terror trial anyway. When your enemy is shooting himself in the foot, you don’t take the gun out of his hands.
I wouldn’t bet against McCain. Tough to beat incumbents - and Juan is a seasoned campaigner. Then again, I thought the Colts would win the Super Bowl...
Lindsay Graham (R-I-N-O) needs to go away.
He’s a JAGass.
What a sell - out!
Senator Lindsey Graham, selling out America every chance he can get.
“Just shut up, grahamnesty. Obozo would have to scrap the NY terror trial anyway. When your enemy is shooting himself in the foot, you donât take the gun out of his hands.”
BINGO. This is obvious to everyone, except Graham.
Obama is giving away nothing, and Graham is providing him with the cover of Republican support for closing Gitmo. Graham needs a keeper,
Graham has no principles. Why on earth does he continue to get elected?
He should of course be voted out in November (or whenever he next comes up for re-election), but that alone isn't sufficiently punitive for the redress of his crimes against America, and his collusion with the O'Bunga Communist Cabal.
He should be deported to Venezuela or France, and forbidden ever to return to America. As should the whole stinking bunch of them.
The first name fits.
I pray he is just using the “Keep your enemies closer” tactic...
“This effeminate puke knows damn well that O’Bunga is going to be forced to scrap the NYC terror trials because of the public outcry. So, this “scrap the KSM deal and I’ll stand with you” is a canard. It’s Linda Graham’s CYA smokescreen for turning traitor on conservatives and patriots all over this country who want this O’Bunga Communist Gateway Bill torched.”
The biggest reason Grahamnesty is cutting this deal is because McCain is giving him his marching orders. That’s why. Behind the scene skullduggery.
Obozo would have to scrap the NY terror trial anyway. When your enemy is shooting himself in the foot,Why would you assume they're enemies?
This time the north should force South Carolina to secede and seal the border until such time as they can grow up and stop sending heartless narcissistic scumbags to Congress who use trial balloons that insult the thousands of American dead over the last 9 years for political farce.
Great post. I agree.
He knows he’s toast in S. Carolina. The party has censured him twice, he’s doing horrible in polls.
This tells me he is simply planning on switching parties. He can’t get re-elected as a Pub but he may as a Dem.
Mark my words - he’s gonna jump; the scumbag.
What a dumbass. zero was going to drop the civilian trials anyway. Leave it to a *&$!#@$ pub to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory once again.
There is a mental disorder infecting the GOP it’s called RHINO
Unfortunately, they just gave him the nod in ‘08. We’re stuck with him a longo time.
He can do more damage from within, and he isn’t up until 2014.
Thanks Lindsey! Obama has stepped in it and it stinks! Now you have stepped in it too and now share the blame! I’m sure you can get your buddy Juan and maybe your “gang of 14” to stepp in it too! Screw you!
As God is my witness....I’ll never be partisan again
Lindsay, as your fearless leader is so fond of reminding McRino, “Elections have consequences!” We in SC elected you to represent our conservative values. We did not vote for the more conservative democrat because a democrat is always a democrat first. I gotta say that based on your recent record, we would have gotten the same result. 2014 is coming, and you had better tweak your resume!
And Obama says, “uh-ok, thanks, I think.”
Lindsey never misses and opportunity to jump on a democrat bandwagon.
With ‘Republicans’ like the pansy Graham and the ‘hoarse whisperer’ McCain the party doesn’t have a chance of warding off a true revolution!
Whata butt boy.
Somebody needs to look in his closet.
2014. That’s when he’s up for re-election. SC does not have provisions for recall.
Before you rag too hard on South Carolina, remember who their other Senator is—Jim Demint. Also, I was there when Graham ran and won in 2002 and he ran as a conservative, with a conservative record (remember, he was one of the House managers for the Clinton impeachment). He didn’t get booted in 2008 because no big-name conservative ran against him in the primary. There’s a very good chance that he’s dead meat in ‘14.
If there were any doubts over supporting J. D. Hayworth, this should dispel all of them. We’re stuck with ‘Lil Ms. Lindsey until 2014 and need to put the fear of God into him. The best way to do that is defeat McLame in the primary and elect J. D.
You just know someone has pictures, perhaps tucked someones a pair of socks,
Off with his head!
Let the Kenyan president try to have the trial in NYC.
Every NYC politician is against it. We won the Battle on this already, and now Grahm wants to negotiate it into a loss.
Limpy Lindsey strikes again.
