Administration halts prosecution of alleged USS Cole bomber
Washington Compost ^ | 8/27/10 | Peter Finn

Posted on 08/27/2010 6:16:50 AM PDT by teddyballgame

The Obama administration has shelved the planned prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a court filing.

The decision at least temporarily scuttles what was supposed to be the signature trial of a major al-Qaeda figure under a reformed system of military commissions. And it comes practically on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attack, which killed 17 sailors and wounded dozens when a boat packed with explosives ripped a hole in the side of the warship in the port of Aden.

WTF!!! And this administration wonders why people think this President is sympathetic to muslims. Kick the can down the road...a real profile in courage. Next they'll be looking for a way to help this guy to be freed.

This is bizarre. I’m starting to wonder whether Obama isn’t a Top Secret Karl Rove plant, put in place to win the 2008 election and then to so thoroughly botch the job of POTUS that Americans would flock back to the Republican Party for generations to come. It seems like every day they are making a bonehead move that simply adds fuel to the fire of an already outraged public.

Some have speculated Obama wants a Republican Congress elected in 2010 so he has something to run against in 2012. If that truly is his strategy, he and his advisors are even more delusional and idiotic than I suspected.

You know, I think he and Holder are just sticking their thumbs in our eye for aslong as they can, as much as they can, before they’re thrown out.

They know they’re going to be thrown out and they’re doing as much damage as they can, for sheer meanness, or for their percieved ‘oppression’ as ‘people of color’.

I don’t think there is any conspiracy - he’s a hard-left liberal and he’s doing what liberals do.

I am sure he wants the house to go to the GOP. He will then position himself as hamstrung by the house.
