Let’s Do The Time Warp, Again

It’s like deja vu all over again. The Obama administration is apparently seriously considering holding Khalid Sheik Mohammed’s trial in a new venue, since New York City is out.

That would be at Guantanamo Bay.

In front of a military tribunal.

The trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed won’t be held in lower Manhattan and could take place in a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay, sources said last night.

Administration officials said that no final decision had been made but that officials of the Department of Justice and the White House were working feverishly to find a venue that would be less expensive and less of a security risk than New York City.

The back-to-the-future Gitmo option was reported yesterday by Fox News and was not disputed by White House officials.

Mind you, that is exactly the right thing to do. KSM had not business ever being in a civilian court with civilian rights. He conducted an illegal act of war against the United States. Barack Obama had absolutely no right to grant KSM the access to civilian courts in the first place.

But one has to ask:

How many heads are exploding on the left right now?

    Gaius –

    Maybe I’m thinking of the USS Cole bombers, but I thought KSM and Co. WERE already involved in a military tribunal/trial in Gitmo when Obama and his DOJ had those charges/proceedings ‘dropped’ (if that’s the correct wording) in order to charge them for the civilian court??

    So, now it would be friggin square one all over again?!?

    And here’s the other thing.

    Whenever you hear the left/dems/Obama Admin. complaining about all the years these terrorists have been detained, and the LONG time it has taken for them to go to trial, nobody EVER calls them on the fact that the ACLU and the detainees’ legal defenses have been the ones throwing up roadblocks for years to keep them from going to trial. It wasn’t Bush letting them ‘sit and rot’ unfairly or stupidly and lazily. It was the legal defense teams of these terrorists.

    KSM could be tried at The Naval Observatory-that would make Ms. Biden happy!
    Perhaps, KSM could help First Lady Michelle in the White House vegetable garden when he wasn’t out trialin’ with the guys!
    Maybe KSM would to go for a MBA from George Mason University!

    The best place for the trial — and all such trials — would be in Chicago, maybe right between Chez Barack and the Ayers/Dohrn bunker.

    also we need to get the Buddy Holly Bomber down to Gitmo, where he belongs
