Has a light bulb turned on in Obama’s skull?
The White House ordered the Justice Department to consider other places to try the 9/11 terror suspects after a wave of opposition to holding the trial in lower Manhattan.
The White House took the action hours after Mayor Bloomberg called Attorney General Eric Holder to say he would “prefer that they did it elsewhere.”
“It would be an inconvenience at the least, and probably that’s too mild a word for people that live in the neighborhood and businesses in the neighborhood,” Bloomberg told reporters.
“There are places that would be less expensive for the taxpayers and less disruptive for New York City.”
State leaders have railed against a plan to try Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in Manhattan federal court since Holder proposed it last month.
The order to consider new venues does not change the White House’s position that Mohammed should be tried in civilian court.
“…Obama is still committed to trying Mohammed and four other terrorist detainees in federal court,” spokesman Bill Burton said Thursday.
“He agrees with the attorney general’s opinion that … he and others can be litigated successfully and securely in the United States of America, just like others have,” Burton said.
This is horseshit. Obama is still determined to try these muslim terrorist mutherfuckers in a civilian court—just not in New York City. GITMO is the ideal place to set up a military tribunal. It’s already equipped with prison facilites, security, and enough isolation to prevent the MSM from being used as an Islamic propaganda forum.
Ah, but that’s right….Jug Ears wants to close it down.
