Nothing like a bunch of Dems coming out of the woodwork to voice an opinion after the dirty deed is done.
Now that it has been decided to hold the KSM trial in NYC with an estimated cost of $200 million dollars PER YEAR, 19 New York Democrats have decided that NYC can not afford the trial. Not only that, they also have the gall to now say that it's very dangerous to hold the trials in NYC and that because many people lost family and friends on 9/11 it will be traumatic, therefore the Federal government should provide the needed funds to keep everyone safe. They have written a letter asking the Federal government for full reimbursement of the costs.
Where were these self-serving b*stards when the subject first came up? Could it be a little CYA was taking place at the time? Now that costs are being estimated they speak up to show the citizens of NYC that they're on their side. BS. Sounds to me like a plan just waiting to happen.
This is just my "conspiracy theory", but could it be Obama promised them the money all along? Told the Dems in NY to agree to have the trial in NYC (or just don't oppose it) and he'll cover the cost in the end. Did Obama give these 19 Dems a chance to look like heroes while he gets what he wanted...the chance to put President Bush and his administration on trial along with KSM?
Will this letter convince Prez BO to pay up? Or was this the plan from the beginning? What do you think?
New York Democrats: Trying KSM in NYC is Kind of Risky

Remember back when Charlie Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, and the rest of the New York Democrats thought that trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City posed no significant security risk? Remember how they said we could easily guarantee the safety of New Yorkers whose memories of 9/11 remained fresh? Well, apparently they’re suddenly worried, because now they’re concerned enough about costs that they’re demanding the federal government pay billions for it:
