Obama Having Second Thoughts About NYC Terrorist Trial

White House asks Justice Department to look for other places to hold 9/11 terror trial
The White House ordered the Justice Department Thursday night to consider other places to try the 9/11 terror suspects after a wave of opposition to holding the trial in lower Manhattan.
The dramatic turnabout came hours after Mayor Bloomberg said he would "prefer that they did it elsewhere" and then spoke to Attorney General Eric Holder.

I have an idea...
How about move the trial to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

  1. This is not and never should be a civilian case... This creep along with his four partners are war criminals (I thought even Obummer has started referring to it as a war on terror) and should be tried in a military tribunal in Quantamo (which should never be closed) found guilty and executed the same day... They want martyrdom and think we should grant them their wishes...

    The same is true for the underwear bomber... Enemy combatant, not a run of the mill criminal...

  2. American:
    What is really frustrating is that these terrorists pleaded guilty in GITMO. The only reason Holder & Obama are bringing them to our shores for trial is to put President Bush on trial. Here is a terrific article by Andrew McCarthy spelling it all out:

  3. The only reason (not to be confused with excuse) I ever hear cited for wanting to try these terrorists in civilian court is that "America has the greatest justice system in the world."

    Yes. I agree 100%. However, I don't think we have to prove it to the rest of the world with a show trial. I don't think we have to prove it to ourselves to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

    If Holder and Obama need a legitimate reason to be proud of their country, they needn't look further than the positions they respectively hold.

    We're so this and that and bla bla -- but where else other than America?

  4. Lucky me, it looks like it is going to come my way. I am going to take pictures of the courthouse and the neighborhood that surrounds it.

    I am not kidding, the metro station is less than a half mile way, the patent building, condos, a movie theater, and other small businesses are all within walking distance of this courthouse.

  5. Josh:
    It was all for show and, as I mentioned to BA American, to get back at President Bush. With such a big backlash, Holder & Obama are left with egg on their faces as far as I'm concerned.

  6. JACG:
    I really hope they decide to take the trial back to GITMO so that you and your neighbors do not have to endure the spectacle of the trial and the threat of violence.
