Joe Biden is under fire from the families of 9/11 victims who are disgusted by his move to offer plea deals to Guantanamo Bay inmates accused of engineering the terrorist attacks that killed 2,977 Americans.
Under the deals, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — named in the 9/11 Commission Report as the “principal architect” of the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil — and four of his alleged co-conspirators would “accept criminal responsibility for their actions and plead guilty … in exchange for not receiving the death penalty,” CBS News reported Aug. 17.
Last week, 2,000 family members of 9/11 victims wrote to the Biden administration demanding it stop bargaining with men, saying it’s tantamount to negotiating with terrorists, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reported Sunday.
Dennis McGinley, whose brother died at New York’s World Trade Center, said sparing the death penalty for terrorists is a slap in the face to all Americans.
“Here we are on the eve of the 22nd anniversary of 9/11, and we are getting kicked in the gut by our own government once again,” McGinley told the Daily Mail.
……Brett Eagleson, whose father perished in the World Trade Center, said offering plea deals to Guantanamo Bay suspects is a “sickening betrayal.”
“To the 9/11 victims, we’ve been fighting for 22 years for peace, closure and accountability,” he told the Mail. “We need to hear what KSM and these other detainees have to say.”
Troy Rosasco, an attorney representing the 9/11 victims’ families, said Biden is trivializing the tragedy by bargaining with Mohammed and the others.
“The Pentagon is embarrassed that it’s taken them 20 years to try to prosecute terrorists,” Rosasco told the Daily Mail. “They think this is going to be a one-day news cycle, and they’re going to be able to sweep it under the rug.”
He added, “U.S. policy should always be — and I thought it was — that we don’t negotiate with terrorists.”
……McGinley agreed. “The same DOJ and FBI that has been blocking the 9/11 families from receiving all of the 9/11 evidence are now sending us letters telling us that there most likely won’t be a trial for [Mohammed], preventing that same evidence from ever being made public — all to cover up for Saudi Arabia and U.S. government’s embarrassment,” he said.
……Eagleson said the Biden administration’s ploy to sweep the 9/11 attacks under the rug with plea deals speaks volumes about what it’s trying to cover up.
He said there’s a trove of documents U.S. intelligence agencies have not released spotlighting Saudi Arabia’s complicity in the terrorist attacks.
“By refusing to give us the documents is accomplishing two things,” Eagleson told the Daily Mail.
“They’re protecting the kingdom from embarrassment, but they’re also protecting our own intelligence failures,” he said.
“They buy billions of dollars of U.S.-manufactured weapons, they stabilize global oil markets. So there’s not a lot of people, or there’s not a lot of big willingness, to try to push them around much.”
The five muzzie terrorists in question are: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-described architect of 9/11, Ramzi Binalshibh, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi, Walid bin Attash and Ammar al-Baluchi. Al five of them facilitated the act of war against America on 9/11. All five of these rancid muzzie turds should have been executed already, instead of breathing precious oxygen.
The Saudis are not our friends. Those rag heads are some of the worst terrorist facilitators on the planet. As a matter of fact, the Saudis funded a dry run for the attack on America. After 9/11, we should have bombed them first.
The Biden regime and his praetorian thugs at the DOJ and FBI target President Trump for political theater, while they work out deals with murderous Islamic pigs. Reminds me of how Obama let free some of the worst Taliban thugs in GITMO in exchange for a sack of shit deserter who has no remorse for collaborating with the enemy.
Biden is morally, ethically, and intellectually bankrupt. This is just one more thing that proves it.
