Just in case readers haven’t heard, Attorney General Eric Holder, who in his other life opposed the death penalty and helped arrange the pardons of the FALN terrorists and sleazy financier, Marc Rich, has opted to try 9/11 confessed killer-mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four al-Qaeda buddies in New York City.
Instead of the far more appropriate venue of a military tribunal at GITMO, the trial will be conducted in federal court before a civilian juryÂ a block away fromÂ Ground ZeroÂ Â where Khalid and his ilk will be accorded all rights and privileges enjoyed by United States citizens.Â
At taxpayer expense, these Islamic reprobates will be assigned attorneys and be rewarded forÂ murdering 3000 innocents by giving them a public platform to spew their anti-American venom and spout their vile rhetoric against the evils of Western civilization.
Holder has announced he will abandon his long-held opposition to capital punishment and seek the death penalty.
He has also avowed that he made his venue decision unilterally and not at the behest of President Barack Hussein Obama.Â Â Â The president sports anÂ amazing detachment from it all considering he serves as our Commander-in-Chief and the trial involves acts of war committed against the American homeland.
To be sure, Obama doesn’t subscribe to the commonsensical truth that we are engaged in a worldwide, terrorist war but one would thinkÂ he would have–and should have–made the momentous and sickening decision to treat Khalid, Â et al. as common criminals, but apparently he didn’t.
Those opposed to this farcical show trial are planning a massive demonstration at noon next Saturday, December 5th in Foley Square, Manhattan.Â Â
The 9/11 Never Forget Coalition, http://defendourdefenders.org/, consisting “of 9/11 survivors, family members, first-responders, veterans, and active-duty and reserve military” in conjunction withÂ its “partners, TheBravest.com (a site maintained by New York firefighters remembering the fellows they lost on September 11, 2001), 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America, and Keep America Safe“Â will stage the rally: http://bit.ly/7soYrUÂ .
Foley Square, in the heart of N.Y.C., is accessible by various bus and subway lines.
The rally will be the first, and maybe the last, chance for Americans to be heard in opposition to Holder’s asinine and dangerous call to give Khalid and al-Qaeda what they’ve wanted all along.Â Within weeks,Â this crewÂ will be regurgitatedÂ on the doorstep of what once was the World Trade Center.Â
