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.”

Officials: U.S. Aware of Hasan Efforts to Contact al Qaeda

The networks are not saying that this was an act of terrorism, but how can it be defined any other way? This is political correctness run amok, and in light of the news that he was in contact with the enemy, this should raise concerns about anybody serving in the military who goes against the purpose for which they serve. They swear to protect against enemies both foreign and domestic, but people had a fear of hurting someone’s feelings and it led to the death of 13 people and injured more than that. Will this change anything among the high-ranking decision makers in uniform? One can only hope.

U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.

It is not known whether the intelligence agencies informed the Army that one of its officers was seeking to connect with suspected al Qaeda figures, the officials said.

One senior lawmaker said the CIA had, so far, refused to brief the intelligence committees on what, if any, knowledge they had about Hasan’s efforts.
