Obvious terrorist plot

  • Follow Editorials

The five terrorists that will be put on trial in an American courtroom plan to use the event to spread their virulent views, one of their attorneys admits.

We love that the attorney is being so open and honest about it. But as courtroom blockbuster surprises go, this is hardly one of them. The terrorists' plot to use the unwarranted mouthpiece of an American courtroom to spread their bile is so patently obvious that you have to ask: Is it just what the Obama administration wants?

Does the Obama administration have that dim a view of America and how it has protected itself against Islamic terrorists that it wants to give five of them a soapbox? Do they hate the Bush-Cheney team so much that they're willing to use terror trials and terrorists to indict the former administration in a public courtroom?

Otherwise, what could possibly be the point of trying enemy combatants in a civilian courtroom? The administration even admits that acquittals won't set the suspected terrorists free.

Again, what is the point?

Asks The Wall Street Journal : If military trials are unjust, why is President Obama still using them for other terror suspects? If they aren't unjust, the paper says, why aren't they good enough for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?

Good questions. It's as if the president of the United States and his attorney general, Eric Holder, were sympathetic to the terrorists' cause and want to give them a pulpit from which to attack America.

Since that's a quite unpleasant notion, you find yourself asking: Is there another benefit of giving some of the planet's most heinous killers a Broadway stage from which to belt out their ugly tunes?

Other than giving the killers the chance to desecrate the nearby grave that we used to call the World Trade Center, that is.

Eric Holder's blank look when

Eric Holder's blank look when Lindsey Graham asked him if this had ever been done represents the administration. They don't have a clue what they are doing or what they should do. It's a Chinese fire drill.

Families of victims of the World Trade Center attack are gathering in New York to protest against having the trials there. Obama has to be having second thoughts about this coming circus.

If one considers that

If one considers that President Obama's life began within the Nation of Islam and that it represented the only structure he knew through his formative years and from his teen years through today, Obama has been a practicing Marxist, TOTALLY enamored with the philosophy, then it isn't a stretch of the imagination to think Obama knows there is no legal president or reason for having this show trial in a civil court. He's smart enough to know the damage he is doing. He knows only the most blind of his worshipers feel there is any good that can come out of this mess. What he doesn't seem to know is that this mistake typifies all of his "leadership" efforts to date. Daily he proves what a horrible mistake the voters of this nation have made.

Riverman1 on Wed Nov 25, 2009

Riverman1 on Wed Nov 25, 2009 3:42 AM Obumbler is a socialist marxist ideologue and can't change his world view. America and Bush were wrong. Since we can't hold investigations of the Bush administration like we wanted because they actually did every thing they were supposed to and Democrates are implicated to the nth degree Obumbler is going to try Bush and America in New York courts along with the terrorists...

Carcraft, you give them too much credit as far as being capable of planning. But, I totally agree, that's what Holder is trying to do.

No precedent (or president as cliffj says)? Didn't we invade a sovreign country in 1989, capture their president (precedent?), bring him to the US, and try him in civilian court?

If it isn't differant why has the US let hundreds of people caught on battlefields return home, after reviewing the facts and the individuals activity, instead of holding trials ?

car; Noriega was a CIA front

car; Noriega was a CIA front man and much of his drug running was CIA backed. Reagan and GWH Bush got ticked when he wouldn't assist as much as they wanted with their arms deals and drug running to back the raping, murdering Contras in Nicaragua.

Unpublished

Eric Holder's deer in the headlights stare when he faced the senate panel is pretty indicative of this idiotic administration. They want to give constitutional rights to foreign combatants hellbent on destroying this country. Pure lunacy! Congrats voters...hope you're proud of this "change."

If the trials do take place

If the trials do take place in NY City, AND there is another terrorist attack, every single soul that is lost in the attack shall ride squarely on the back of HOLDER and OBUMBLER. Will they be held accountable? I think NOT. GODSPEED NOV 2012.

Only an Oracle could be presented with hard proven facts day after day and interpret a completely different meaning and be 100% correct. This might be the revelation I've been searching for.
