Moving on, remember when Attorney General Eric Holder hatched the brilliant idea in 2009 to give the madman behind 9/11 Khalid Sheik Muhammad and his gang of four co-conspirators a civilian trial in NYC. After Mayor Bloomberg and city residents said “hell no, you won’t” Holder backed off with his tail between his legs and said these terrorists would be tried in military courts.
Ever bent on treating terrorists with kindness, this week Obama issued an order which would allow civilian investigators to handle US terrorism cases bypassing military custody. Thanks to the White House’s insistence, the Defense Authorization Act of 2011 grants Obama the right to waive the military detention requirement for terrorists accused of plotting against America. Looks like a slippery slope toward civil trials to me.
President Obama gives terrorists at GITMO a $750,000 playground and apologizes to Afghans for US soldiers burning the Quran but doesn’t demand President Karzai apologize to the US for the Americans soldiers killed by Afghans. Something is very wrong with America, the land of the free and the brave, rolling out the red carpet for terrorists and being more concerned about protecting their freedom, civil liberties and feelings than those of the American people or more importantly our soldiers fighting and dying for us. No wonder America’s enemies feel safe these days.
