This is exactly what people predicted would happen, if these cases were tried in open court.

You either hold back sensitive information knowing your contacts and methods will be revealed, or you allow the terrorist to walk to protect them.

Congrats Lefties. Chalk up another victory for terrorists and their enablers.

Should have read: You either provide enough evidence to convict and reveal your methods and sources, or you allow the terrorist to walk to protect them.

The Judge disqualified the main witness. Too coercive don’t you know.

And about that juror who demanded to be released from the jury. She remained.

Thank you Eric Holder.

The anonymous federal jury deliberated over seven days, with a juror writing a note to the judge saying she felt threatened by other jurors.

Let me guess! /s

I can’t even get indignant anymore. No matter how much of the back-and-forth political theater we are treated to, this country is already leaning over the cliff and just needs a firm shove to send it careening into space. The shove could come in so many ways-ammesty, drastic economy meltdown, another terror attack, or just the drip-drip of Chinese water torture of PC enactments to which most are already inured if not celebratory, wearing away our individual rights and liberty, while desensitising us to immorality unthinkable just decades ago. Undermining the churches with the “social gospel” just as they undermined academia with “social justice” until it’s the norm and true Bible-believing Christians are “dangerous extremists” and “radical fundamentalists”, to be confused with the Islamic version which is murderous. I’m still voting, that’s all there is, but my eyes are looking above.

Ghailani was acquitted on 224 murder charges in connection with the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. He was found guilty for only one charge of conspiracy to destroy government buildings.

Read more: here

So I guess they bought the argument that he didn;t know there would be people in the embassies. And he only did one of them.

I believe it was conspiracy to harm a Government building, at least that's what I think I heard on fox.

Min 20 years and up to life.

The other day there was a FR thread on the TV show Dexter. THIS is why the show is so popular. It's about a serial killer who goes around doing what the court system more and more frequently cannot, will not and has not done - punish very bad people.

Letting him walk is the plan. Letting ALL terrorists walk is part of the plan.

Remember - Eric Holder was the lawyer who advocated and pushed through the Clinton pardon of the 14 FALN terrorists

Eric Holders Law firm was representing about 30 of the Gitmo terrorists and about 30 new Justice Dept Lawyers previously represented Islamic Terrorists

The one count he was convicted on carries a mandatory minimum of 20 years in prison, and a maximum of life. And there is no parole in the federal system.

So then is the claim of ignorance (of how many people would be killed) jihadi bliss?

This is an Obama/Holder travesty upon each of the 200 dead and their families.

And just by cowinky-dink, the quisling responsible for this travesty is off for Europe tomorrow so he can avoid the 24/7 beat down he would receive if he stayed in Washington.
