Hundreds Protest in NYC Against KSM Civilian Trial

Hundreds of protestors rallied Saturday against the plan to give the alleged mastermind of 9/11 and four others a civilian trial in New York City.

“They are war criminals,” one of the speakers, firefighter and US marines veteran Peter Regan, said to cheers. “The terrorists should be tried in a military court.”

The crowd huddled under umbrellas in chilly rain outside New York’s federal courthouse where Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other 9/11 suspects are due to be tried after being transferred from the controversial US prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The courthouse is a few blocks from Ground Zero, site of the former World Trade Center, which was destroyed on September 11, 2001 when hijacked airplanes slammed into the Twin Towers and into the Pentagon outside Washington, killing nearly 3,000 people.

The rally was organized by the 9/11 Never Forget Coalition, which argues that those responsible for 9/11 do not deserve the legal rights of US citizens.

……Many at the rally said they worried that bringing (Khalid Sheik) Mohammed, commonly referred to as KSM, to public trial would give the Al Qaeda figure and his co-accused a platform to make militant speeches.

“Holder is giving a megaphone to the terrorists to spout their hatred of this country,” said Sue Vaccaro, an elderly, elegantly dressed woman. “Do the terrorists give all these rights to our people when they cut their heads off?”

Kudos to these folks for not letting this idiotic move by Obama and Holder to go unchallenged.
Expect the protests to grow in size and volume when KSM is paraded in front of the civilian court.

    Before the Khalid Shaikh Mohammed Circus comes to town attracting freak shows and illusionists to the midway, I thought the following information would be of interest:
    Todd Beamer’s memorial service was held on 09/16/01 at the Princeton Alliance Church in Plainsboro, New Jersey. Todd Beamer’s wife, Lisa Beamer, a grieving mother of two and four months pregnant with her third child, registers TODDBEAMER.ORG four days later on 09/20/01, incorporates The Todd M. Beamer Memorial Foundation eight days later on 9/24/01 and then applies for the trademark “Let’s Roll” ten days later on 9/26/01. Instead of acting like a wife and mother who should be experiencing untold grief and loss her behavior turns a catastrophic personal tragedy into a cold and calculating cheap publicity stunt. But then, the U S Government’s 9/11 propaganda machine needed heroes as well as villains paraded through the media to support endless wars that murder indigenous people for control of their natural resources.

    The most pivotal image of the events of 9/11 was what the Associated Press published as the photograph of United flight 175 frozen in time as it approached World Trade Center Two and credited to a Carmen Taylor. However, there appears to be a discrepancy in an early image of her and ones that followed. Real jet planes filled with fuel explode and break apart upon impact. They DO NOT mysteriously enter steel and concrete buildings like a hot knife into soft butter without a spark or bent wing tip. The following link elaborates:

    1. Emmanuel,

      Put down the Kool Aid and stop frequenting the “troofer sites”.

      Information of interest that would be helpful to you:

      “Troofer”: An individual belonging to a group known as the 9/11 “Truthers”; a managerie of wack-job conspiracy theorists who believe that either the government had specific warnings of the impending attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, or worse, that it was behind the attacks.

      Scientists, architects, and engineers, including those who built the World Trade Center, have spoken up to debunk these crazy-assed theories and the loonies who embrace them.

      The buildings did not “implode”, they collapsed under the weakening of the structures resulting from the jet-fuel-based inferno. Those planes were chock full of flammable material which in turn, caused massive fires to spread throughout the buildings.

      Popular Mechanics published a comprehensive, detailed, investigative analysis which dissects all of the myths and idiotic claims surrounding the attacks and the subsequent damage.

      Just one of the points covered:

      FACT: Jet fuel burns at 800° to 1500°F, not hot enough to melt steel (2750°F). However, experts agree that for the towers to collapse, their steel frames didn’t need to melt, they just had to lose some of their structural strength — and that required exposure to much less heat. “I have never seen melted steel in a building fire,” says retired New York deputy fire chief Vincent Dunn, author of The Collapse Of Burning Buildings: A Guide To Fireground Safety. “But I’ve seen a lot of twisted, warped, bent and sagging steel. What happens is that the steel tries to expand at both ends, but when it can no longer expand, it sags and the surrounding concrete cracks.”

      “Steel loses about 50 percent of its strength at 1100°F,” notes senior engineer Farid Alfawak-hiri of the American Institute of Steel Construction. “And at 1800° it is probably at less than 10 percent.” NIST also believes that a great deal of the spray-on fireproofing insulation was likely knocked off the steel beams that were in the path of the crashing jets, leaving the metal more vulnerable to the heat.

      But jet fuel wasn’t the only thing burning, notes Forman Williams, a professor of engineering at the University of California, San Diego, and one of seven structural engineers and fire experts that PM consulted. He says that while the jet fuel was the catalyst for the WTC fires, the resulting inferno was intensified by the combustible material inside the buildings, including rugs, curtains, furniture and paper. NIST reports that pockets of fire hit 1832°F.

      “The jet fuel was the ignition source,” Williams tells PM. “It burned for maybe 10 minutes, and [the towers] were still standing in 10 minutes. It was the rest of the stuff burning afterward that was responsible for the heat transfer that eventually brought them down.”

      Secondly, anyone who spews shit like “the U S Government’s 9/11 propaganda machine needed heroes as well as villains paraded through the media to support endless wars that murder indigenous people for control of their natural resources”, is clueless and just plain fucking stupid. Before you link to a site that calls itself “progressiveindependent”, make sure you extract your head from your ass.

      By the way, those protesters are raising hell for a good reason. KSM and every other muslim jihadist fuckstick we capture should be tried before a miltary tribunal, not a civilian court.
