WASHINGTON — Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-described mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, and four other men accused in the plot will be prosecuted in federal court in New York City, a federal law enforcement official said early on Friday. [...]
Isn't the Obama slimester OK?

Michelle Malkin: Bombshell: Obama bringing KSM to NYC for trial
It’s Friday. The president is flying off to Asia. Congress is not in session. Perfect time to drop a bombshell on the American people:
The Obama administration is bringing 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed to New York City for a civilian trial.
No, it’s not a joke. Via the NYT: [...]
NYT linked above. Ain't this a GREAT thing?
It was announced that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other al Qaeda terrorists that have thus far been detained at Guantanamo Bay will be tried in court in New York, but several other terrorists will be tried in a military commission. [...]
[...] The President knows he can't merely sit and do nothing this time. He made a bunch of nice words about closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay and sending these guys to criminal trials. His minders probably pulled him aside twenty minutes after sitting down in the Oval Office and explained that if he did that, he'd never see a second term. As a result, we have this bifurcated prosecution. Some go to criminal trials, some go to military commissions and not a rhyme or reason to it except the President wants to be reelected. [...]
Just a thought here...Nobama will not be re-elected even as a manager for a fart factory.
[...] This is guaranteed to be a circus. Team Obama has officially given all terrorist killers US citizenship rights regardless of where they were captured. Nice work, Barack. [...]
The Obama administration will send five of the 9/11 plotters to New York City to face a criminal trial for their part in the terrorist attacks that killed almost 3,000 people. Among the terrorists to be tried is mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, perhaps the most notorious detainee currently at Guantanamo Bay. The decision will raise questions about security — and what Obama is prepared to do if prosecutors fumble the case: [...]
Can you imagine what a circus this is going to be and what an interruption this is going to cause in the lives of everyday New Yorkers? [...]
OBAMA IS INSANE.
I'll agree with that one.
Obama’s presidency is already on shaky ground, but now his administration is going out of its way to create their own fault lines.
Attorney General Eric Holder will announce this morning that the 9/11 “mastermind” Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other terror suspects (I’m sorry… “Alleged man-caused disaster participants”) will be tried in a civil court in New York. [...]
This is really too much. Obama made an ass out of himself at Fort Hood. Then he did the same at Arlington National Cemetary. Then he tells the world that due to "corruption" in Afghanistan he won't be sending help to our Troops screaming for help. And now? We have The Jihadi scum bag in the White Marxist House rendering aid and comfort to known Jihadi bastards by bringing them to NYC for a CIVILIAN trial.
This tells me so much about the useless flake that is Obama. May he find a very special place in hell to bathe in the glories of Jihad.
The Snooper Report. Join us as we Take Our Country Back.
Sic vis pacem para bellum
Khalid Sheik Mohammed (KSM), the mastermind behind the 9-11 attacks and the murder of 2,996 American citizens, is being brought to the United States for a civilian trial. Yes. A CIVILIAN trial.
What the hell is going on? Is this now a police action? If so, why the hell are we wasting our troops? Why don’t we gather up all of our traffic cops and ship them to the battlefield? Maybe if we issue a few parking violations to the Taliban they will change their murderous ways. [...]
Thanks, Democrats, you dirtbags [...]
That's my only concern about bringing these lowlives up from Club Gitmo where they're safe and tucked away outside the reach of the liberals and our country, and that is the potential for some lone wolf local terrorist wannabe to take it upon themselves to Martyr the whole entire shabang with some kind of deadly disruption of some degree.....I just hope and pray they have that situation handily and entirely under control. [...]
It's Obama so the control is out the window.
The news that the administration plans to try the 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a civilian court in New York has placed the Holder/Obama team's legal idiocy in the spotlight. Some have noted how impossible it will be to impanel a fair jury in NY where the most awful destruction occurred.
Others note this makes NY the terror target of the world. [...]
Damn Obama. Literally.
In a stunning act of denial and capitulation to Islamic jihad, the Obama administration submits by bringing the masterminds of the shocking invasion of America into a New York courtroom to try the Muslim masterminds of the most brutal attack on American soil in modern history enjoining "over a millennium of jihad wars, land expropriations, enslavements, and humiliations of the conquered non-Muslim populations on three continents."
Imagine, the enemy is facing a civilian trial in NYC. Devastating. [...]
[...] The most significant impliation of the announcement is that the transnational alliance of America-haters will get first-hand information on America's counterterrorism and intelligence programs -- the great hope of the terror-backing neo-communist left, at home and worldwide, is that the Obama administration will continue to build a case for torture trials for former Bush administration officials. [...]
This whole debacle is one messed up deal.
