So President Barack Obama and AG Holder do do think this is going to be a show trial and a farce putting US foreign policy on trial and not the terrorists, eh? Grow up. One truly must ask what Obama’s purpose is behind making this trial public except to put GWB, Cheney and the CIA & water boarding on trial.
Of course the trial is going to provide a platform for these terrorists for their propaganda. As Stop the ACLU states, “anyone with an IQ of about 40 could see this would happen. What’s Obama and Holder’s excuse? Or do they want the Islamic terrorists to view their criticisms?”
The five men facing trial in the Sept. 11 attacks will plead not guilty so that they can air their criticisms of U.S. foreign policy, the lawyer for one of the defendants said Sunday.Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer for accused terrorist Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, said the men would not deny their role in the 2001 attacks but “would explain what happened and why they did it.”
What is the motivation why Obama and his AG would take these terrorists out of a military tribunal and place them in civilian criminal court? How will this not become a 3 ring circus? Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the Department of Justice stated the following in regards to the trial being presided over appropriately.
Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the Department of Justice, said Sunday that while the men may attempt to use the trial to express their views, “we have full confidence in the ability of the courts and in particular the federal judge who may preside over the trial to ensure that the proceeding is conducted appropriately and with minimal disruption, as federal courts have done in the past.”
These people better hope so because of majority of Americans do not feel that these terrorists should be afforded the rights of Americans in a US criminal court and the backlash against Obama could be something fierce.
