It's sad that the fight is with our own government over something that doesn't have to happen. 9/11 families and many other Americans are outraged by Obama/Holder's decision to try the 9/11 terrorists in a civilian trial. A protest is planned in NYC on Saturday, December 5. Check out 9/11 Never Forget, Keep America Safe, 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America, and Atlas Shrugs for information.
This will break your heart:
Daniel Pearl's dad is sickened by Obama's 9/11 trial decision
The father of slainreporter slammed the Obama administration's decision to hold a public trial for admitted 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed -- who boasted of killing his son in Pakistan.
Judea Pearl said he was "sick to the stomach" when he heard that the Justice Department decided to prosecute Mohammed in Manhattan federal court.
"I don't want to hear every morning in the papers what KSM did," Pearl told The Post last night. "Danny was killed once. Now he will be killed 10 times a day. Leave him alone."
John Bolton doesn't want his family in NYC during the trial and sees this decision as more proof of the Obama administration's ineptitude and lack of commitment to fighting terrorism:
Host Melanie Morgan: Given the nature and danger of bringing these terrorists to American soil, where do you think is the most safe place to be when they get here and this trial begins? Where would you put your family?Most recent posts here.
John Bolton: Well, not New York City, I'm afraid to say. This is part of the callousness and the really, lack of professionalism and judgment to put them on trial anywhere in the United States in civilian courts. It's a major strategic blunder. It will give Khalid Sheik Mohammad and his co-defendants an opportunity, a la Joseph Stalin, to put on their own show trial in New York. This time it won't be the prosecution conducting the show trial, it will be the defense. Again, it shows the administration is not serious about the war on terrorism. It's a pre-9/11 law enforcement paradigm rather than the paradigm of a global war on terrorism which I think the Bush administration correctly adopted with near-unanimous support in this country after 9/11.
