Well, if it bombs in New Haven it’ll never make it to Broadway.

That would be an ... amusing ... place to hold the trials. The defendants should fit right in when they're released after all charges are dismissed.

Holder could deputize the Black Panthers to provide court house security.

With DeStefano as Mayor, he’d have them reside in the Omni and hand out ID cards. And I bet this STILL won’t make my liberal neighbors see the truth about Obama and Co.

Maybe he could put them up with your liberal neighbors - do you think that might convince them?

Noticed no mention of costs either...how quaint.
What makes the NY pricetag any smaller in New Haven, which is just as densely crowded?

This doesn’t surprise me considering Mayor DeStefano declared New Haven a sanctuary city.

Anyone else think the very name “New Haven” may be symbolic to Holdbama?

First heard about New Haven being considered one of alternate cities to hold the KSM trial this morning on my friend’s and local mid-morning conservative talkradio show host on WTIC AM, Jim Vicevich.

Professor Koh (Yale Law) is the New Haven connection...Yale is very proud of his “human rights” work relative to Gitmo, as is Obama and Holder.

See link for more on Koh’s position in the State Dept:

The ACLU has launched an initiative called the “John Adams Project.”…What is it? In a nutshell, the ACLU has assembled a “Dream Team” of attorneys with an $8.5 million budget to defend terrorists currently held at Guantanamo. Who’s the primary object of the ACLU’s affection? Khalid Sheik Mohammed.

The ACLU, true to form, impugns the professionalism and competence of men and women of infinitely more honor than their accusers by referring to tribunals as “kangaroo courts.” But could the ACLU really be so scandalized that this mass murderer will stand before a military tribunal? Could the ACLU truly be standing up for his “fundamental rights?” What is the true purpose of a multi-million-dollar campaign to get KSM off the hook?

The ACLU explains: “The ACLU chose to focus on Mohammed’s defense, Romero said, because he appears to be “the government’s top priority in the prosecution. And whether or not they are able to convict Khalid Sheik Mohammed under these rules may well determine the fate of the almost 300 other men who are detained at Guantanamo.”

So that’s it. The ACLU wants to set KSM and 300 other terrorists free or at least make it impossible for the tribunals to serve their function. Because KSM is the worst of the worst, because he is the terrorist in custody most responsible for 9/11, the ACLU is his champion.

This PR stunt can only serve to undermine American credibility by creating the illusion – sure to be propagated by the mass media – that mass killers are somehow being denied “justice.” Think our enemies don’t appreciate the ACLU’s efforts on their behalf – on both legal and the PR fronts? Clearly, this will leave America more vulnerable to attack.

Role of ACLU Decisive in Moving KSM Trial to New York

Eric Holder called his decision to try the suspected plotters of 9/11 in New York City “the toughest decision I’ve had to make as attorney general.” It was unarguably the most controversial one. In my opinion, it was also the stupidest one. The decision has rightly received plenty of criticism, but what has not been talked about is the months of lobbying behind closed doors that made this happen. Meanwhile, one of the major players responsible for pushing this is popping the cork and cheering the decision.

That the ACLU cheers this latest attack on American national security is no surprise. After all, they are up to their ears in making sure Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his friends get sprung, although the mainstream media seems to be ignoring the ACLU’s role. I wrote last year at Pajamas Media that the “John Adams Project” would undoubtedly play a role in securing three hots and a cot for Khalid Sheik Mohammed while he awaits his day in an American court:
