Sept. 11 Defendant Seeks a Trial, and a Platform

Eric Holder and Back Hussein Obama will have blood on their hands should KSM and his cohorts have their day in Federal Court. Both the Attorney General and the President are either naive to think that this will not result in a huge platform for these alledged terrorists, or they are doing this on purpose. Obviously the appeasement approach isn’t working because these terrorists excoriate President Obama, and describe the current era as “the black ages of Barack” and call him “a liar.” Nice job guys. I can’t wait to see how you handle Iran when they don’t cooperate. Let’s hold hands and talk some more.  Hey Holder and Obama, remember this?

Obama is going to give the animals who did this, their day in court

The five men the Justice Department has said will be charged in the attacks of Sept. 11 intend to plead not guilty so they can express their political and religious views during a trial, the lawyer for one of the men said on Saturday.

The lawyer, Scott L. Fenstermaker, said that during a meeting at the Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, prison on Tuesday, his client, Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, expressed the desire for a trial despite his intention to admit his role in the attacks and seek “martyrdom” through execution.

“He acknowledges that he helped plan the 9/11 attacks, and he says he’s looking forward to dying,” Mr. Fenstermaker said of Mr. Ali. But he said he expected Mr. Ali and his co-defendants to plead not guilty “so they can have a trial and try to get their message out.”

Would U.S. Need To Read Bin Laden His Miranda Rights?

Yes, you’re seeing this correctly. NPR actually referred to Sen Lindsey Graham as “stumping” Attorney General Eric Holder. I’m generally not a fan of Mr. Graham, but he does a good job here. What really surprises me are the comments from NPR readers that basically say they think this guy is an idiot and dangerous. Can anyone say Obama buyer’s remorse? I’ve attached the video of some of the questioning.

Lindsey Graham Destroys Eric Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to give a federal court trial instead of a military commission hearing to five Guantanamo detainees the government has linked to the 9/11 attacks has led to criticism that the Obama Administration is transforming the war on terror from a military to law-enforcement affair.

This has led some critics to wonder if captured terrorist suspects would have to be read their Miranda rights on being captured by U.S. military or law enforcement representatives.
