Obama And His Leftists Pander To 9/11 Terrorists

It’s no surprise that Barack Obama has blocked the military commission process that would have yielded the swiftest and most certain justice to the 9/11 plotters, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), the suicide-hijacking mastermind who brazenly took credit for 9/11 and numerous other attacks against the United States. It's no surprise because candidate Obama urged a return to pre-9/11 counterterrorism-by-courts and will go to such disgraceful lengths to exploit this terrible tragedy for political self-aggrandizement in order to continue his "blame George" agenda.

  1. Provides Constitutional protections to terrorists
  2. : Administration officials have admitted that detainees present in the United States likely have more protections—including constitutional rights—than those held outside the country.
  1. Intelligence:
  2. Past public criminal trials of terrorists have compromised U.S. intelligence information on al Qaeda, namely the Blind Sheikh and Ramzi Yousef trials.
  1. Increased possibility of release:
  2. Once the Administration voluntarily brings al Qaeda terrorists to the United States, even for detention and trial, it increases the chance they could be released into the country. Where detainees have sought a court order of release into the country, the main case denying that order turned on the fact that the detainees were outside the country.
  1. Prisoner radicalization:
  2. Importing the 9/11 conspirators into domestic U.S. prison facilities would provide them access to a prisoner population FBI Director Mueller has identified as particularly vulnerable to extremist recruitment.
  1. Logistics:
  2. The logistics of the Zacarias Moussaoui criminal trial do not seem like something local officials wish to repeat. Media reports described the city of Alexandria, VA, as a “virtual encampment” during his trial.
  1. Propaganda platform:
  2. Delay and abuse of the criminal process would likely attend the criminal trial of the 9/11 conspirators, such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. By comparison, Moussaoui’s guilty plea was almost four years after his indictment, and now, close to eight years after his indictment, his appeal remains pending in which he claims that his guilty plea should be withdrawn and a new trial ordered because he was confused about the charges against him. Moussaoui used the trial as a platform to mock the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Moussaoui abused the judicial process throughout the course of the trial, filing, among other things, motions “for a 1st Class Ticket on 747-400 Out of the United States Now” and to have a duel with “Chief Liar Ashcroft” in the judge’s courtyard.

It’s no surprise that Obama Attorney-General Eric Holder has made the decision to try the five cowards who plotted the 9/11 attacks in civilian court. Eric Holder's list of clients of his former law firm, Covington & Burling, represent 17 Yemeni nationals and one Pakistani citizen held at Gitmo. Covington & Burling’s Gitmo bar roster has included some of the most radical detainee advocates. 

It’s no surprise since Holder, while deputy Attorney-General in the Clinton administration, pushed for the release of 16 violent FALN terrorists against the advice of the FBI, the US Attorneys who prosecuted them and the NYPD officers who were maimed by them, suggests that he was perfectly willing to put politics before the national security interests of the country.

It’s no surprise that Barack Obama’s Justice department overseeing the New York trial of these 5 gutless 9/11 plotters, overflows with lawyers who spent the last 8 years representing America’s enemies list.The military commission system is tailor-made for the 9/11 plotters. Last December, KSM and his four co-defendants indicated to the military judge that they wanted to plead guilty and move on to execution. But then the foolish and dangerous Obama administration swept into power and undertook to repudiate President Bush’s counterterrorism practices, declaring its intention to close Gitmo within a year and forcing a moratorium on military commissions so the process could be “studied.”

The announcement that KSM and the other 9/11 plotters will be sent to federal court in New York for a civilian trial is the most significant step to date in Obama’s determination to turn back the clock to the time when government believed subpoenas rather than Marines were the answer to jihadist murder and mayhem.The Obama left delusionally argues that trying KSM and the other four 9/11 plotters will make us safer, the international community will see how enlightened we are, and on and on with their delusional, naive, anti-American sentiments. Our enemies will lay down their arms and be as weak and feckless as Obama, and suddenly stop plotting, planning and devising means to attack Americans. 

As observed by former attorney general Michael Mukasey, who presided over terrorism cases as a federal judge, “We did just that after the first World Trade Center bombing, after the plot to blow up airliners over the Pacific, and after the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. In return, we got the 9/11 attacks and the murder of nearly 3,000 innocents.” Are we not surprised?

For more insight into the opportunities that Barack Obama and his feckless administration and followers have served up on a silver platter to the 9/11 terrorists refer to the following from The U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee (RPC). The RPC has identified 6 opportunites presented by the Obama administration to the 9/11 terrorists and al Qaeda because of their irresponsible, dangerous and politically charged decision.
