Video: Holder grumpy about having to try KSM in military tribunal
hot air ^ | 4/4/11 | Allahpundit

Posted on 04/04/2011 1:25:40 PM PDT by Nachum

They woulda coulda shoulda had a slam dunk against Mohammed in federal court but that darned legislative branch just won’t cooperate.

In that context, Holder took to the podium on Monday not only to announce the new decision — that KSM will be tried in a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay — but to blast those who criticized the notion of a federal, civilian trial.

“Those unwise and unwarranted restrictions undermine our counterterrorism efforts and could undermine our national security,” Holder said of the ban imposed by Congress.

Congress, in essence, doesn’t know what it’s talking about, he went on to say…

“Sadly, this case has been marked by needless controversy since the beginning, but despite all the arguments and debate that it has engendered, the prosecution of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his co-conspirators should never have been about settling ideological arguments or scoring political points,” Holder said.

In other words: Shame on you.

And so, with a heavy heart, it’s back to Gitmo, which is convenient for a bunch of reasons.

But we elected our representatives to REPRESENT us. He’s talking about the general public being too dumb to know what’s being talked about.

Nice to know we have all the smarts under Obama to run things.....

If it wasn’t about settling scores then why did holder try to move KSM’s trial to civilian court. The entire obama administration has been about settling scores and failed liberal idealogy run amuck and the American people see through it.

This is true. So it should never have been seriously considered to try KSM in any way other than before a military tribunal.

No one elected Holder. He’s just another commie plant. They wanted federal courts so they could have discovery and undermine our national security, and use it against Bush.

Sorry, no tears for you Holder. Crawl back under that rock from which you came.

Holder wanted to try him in a Criminal copurt so some smart and witout a moral value could getrich and get him off.

Obama told Holder to get the Muzzie off, like he got the Panthers off, but now they cannot do it.

That’s why he is all wee wee’d up.

You are correct, Thank You.

Holder wanted to try him in a Criminal Court so some smart assed lawyer, without a moral value ,some Johnny Cochran clone, could get rich and get him off.

Obama told Holder to get the Muzzie off, like he got the Panthers off, but now they cannot do it.

That’s why he is all wee wee’d up.

He has only his own party to blame. These congressional restrictions were passed when there were veto-proof Dumbocrat majorities. And the bill was signed by Obummer himself.

Lets see here a quick list of them that so far do not like this.
ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero, which vehemently opposes military courts, said the Obama administration’s decision “is completely wrong.”
“There is a reason this system is condemned: it is rife with constitutional and procedural problems and undermines the fundamental American values

So far If He’s against it, I’m for it.

And Holder. They might be His people, Again If he don’t like it, I do.

holder has mediocrity writ large all over him! Mediocrity spread by our own nanny-statism pussyfooting policies. We are addicted to race in this land and we reap what we sow.

It was the media questions that got him so grumpy.

He was not amused, not a bit.

Too bad, so sad.

Not sure about that - there is Janet Reno to consider.
