Poll Shows Majority of Americans Disagree With KSM Trial In NYC

(Photo: Associated Press) The last thing KSM should see.

The Obama administration’s decision to give 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shieikh Mohammed and other terrorists ” fair trials”, (as opposed to a military tribunals) we are  told “upholds American values”.

It turns out, two thirds of us don’t share those values:

Two-thirds of Americans disagree with the Obama administration’s decision to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed in a civilian court rather than a military court, according to a new national poll.

William Teach has more at The Pirate’s Cove.

Among those two thirds happens to be New York’s Democrat Governor Paterson.

“This is not a decision that I would have made,” he said when asked about the upcoming trials of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and his four underlings in Manhattan Federal Court.

“It’s a little inconsistent with what he told me last week,” U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told the Daily News last night after being honored on the East Side with the Brennan Center for Justice Legacy Award.

Slightly less measured in his tone is Dan Riehl:

The Un-American Elitist Moron In The White House

Let’s just hope he isn’t successful in dragging America too far down with him before he’s run out of town in 2012 as the absolutely worst chief executive in America’s modern history. With his latest stupid move he’s simply handing radical Islam a perfect propaganda tool and causing NYC and America to experience more sadness and potential mayhem than they’ve already endured due to those miscreants.

Obama is a disgraceful incompetent never tested for the job he holds, not once in his entire life. And he lacks the wisdom, experience and genuine patriotism to even understand it. In two years, the half of this country that has come to outright despise him will join with the smaller segment of the electorate that is simply sick of him and his bad, dumb, holier than thou ideas and throw him out of the WH further than perhaps any former American potus has ever been tossed on his overly large ears.

Word.

The WSJ’ Bret Stephens has long thought that bringing KSM et al back to NYC is a good idea, but his vision is somewhat different from the Obama administration’s:

In my concept, the men would be taken by helicopter to a height of about 1,000 feet over Ground Zero and pushed out the door, so that they, too, could experience what so many of their victims did in the awful final flickering seconds of their lives.

And since al Qaeda intended the attacks as a spectacle for the benefit of its would-be recruits, I’d give al Jazeera the exclusive TV rights.

I get it now…ground zero should be the last thing KSM sees.

CNN poll: 64% of Americans are … un-American?

This weekend, Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) called people who oppose criminal trials in federal court for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the 9/11 plotters “un-American.” It turns out that there is an epidemic of this lack of patriotism, according to CNN.

Oh brother! Just when you think they couldn’t be more incompetent…

Just One Minute: The Fast Track To Dumb:

As he told us last Friday, Eric Holder wants to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed in civilian courts because he (mostly) attacked civilians, while the attackers of the USS Cole will be sent to a military tribunal.  The Dallas Morning News explained:

There is no contradiction here: military courts for attacks on the military, civilian courts for attacks on civilians.

OMG.  And if the next batch of terrorists are clever enough to attack an elementary school will they be tried in juvenile court?

There’s more, keep reading.

Yes, let’s give more rights to the nice folks who target civilians. Makes perfect sense. OMG indeed.

  1. People like Moran should be removed from office immediately. No one is more UnAmerican than most of our government. The elitist moron in the W.H. not putting his hand on his heart during the pledge..bowing to anyone he could possibly impress..selling this Country for his own ego should be the first to go.

  2. This circus will only harm the Liberals who have arranged it all. Whatever happens, it’ll be to our benefit and to their disgrace. I can understand what it is they are trying to do, but even if it comes off well, with no collateral damage, it will still only be seen as good publicity for terrorists all over the world. Like Gitmo, this is a lose-lose situation for our current Liberal rulers. Take heart, this too shall pass and make us stronger!
