Accused Sept. 11 plotter Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is likely to be executed after being tried and convicted, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Sunday.

Gibbs spoke on CNN’s “State of the Union.” The Obama administration has begun looking for places other than the heart of New York City to prosecute Mohammed and four alleged co-conspirators in the face of fierce criticism tied to security and costs.

What was the reason why Barack Hussein Obama and AG Eric Holder took Khalid Sheikh Mohammed out of the military tribunals and put him into a civilian court? They stated that they wanted the world to see how US Courts would fairly and justly handle KSM.  Such a statement by the Presidential spokesman would seen to do just the opposite and prejudge the trial.

Hmm, Obama spokesman says that KSM will be tried, convicted and executed … so I guess we are forced to agree with FiredogLake, why have the trial then? If this is the case then why not keep it in a military tribunal and save the costs of a civilian trial?

Am I the only person left who still remembers a legal concept called presumption of innocence? Am I the only one who remembers that the whole point of a trial is that the outcome is not certain?
You don’t. So stop shooting you mouth off and calling our system of justice and the dedicated professionals of both bench and bar in the Southern District of New York into disrepute.

Listen, the White House needs to back off and let the professionals handle this trial. USAO SDNY and the judges of SDNY are pros at this. David Axelrod is not. Robert Gibbs is not. People who have no clue what they are talking about, need to back out of this loop, now.

This is what happens when a Presidential Administration that is perceived to be weak on terror tries to politicize the war on terror. The Obama Administration has already had to do an about face when it came to trying KSM and other 911 terrorists in NYC. What next, back to GITMO and military tribunals?

      What complete idiots we have running this country into the ground. Gibbs is the worst Press Secretary of all times.

      Not good to set or establish precedent (by president) in
      wartime terrorist trials. Military tribunal is the correct
      method. Bringing these warmongers into our civilian
      court system is outrageous and uncalled for! Blatant
      political move only.

      So we’re showcasing the American legal system by having the White House announce, before the trial starts, that the accused will be executed. :::tilts head:::

      Where did our President find these people?

      Dear Mr. President:

      Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since?

      Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from the nation’s capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

      Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn’t they?

      And I’m supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against
      in a brutal insurgency.

      I’ll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

      Maybe Americans will starting caring about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .

      Maybe America will care about when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg’s head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

      We’ll care when the cowardly so-called ‘insurgents’ in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.

      We’ll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

      We’ll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

      In the meantime, when we hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

      We don’t care.

      When we see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:

      We don’t care.

      When we hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and ‘fed special food’ that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being ‘mishandled,’ you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts:

      We don’t care.

      And oh, by the way, we’ve noticed that sometimes it’s spelled ‘Koran’ and other times ‘Quran.’ Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it,

      We don’t care!

      Sooner or later, this message may finally get through to you, President Obama & then get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behaviour.

      If you don’t agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don’t complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country and then more loss of American lives is on your head. Please also don’t complain that your popularity rating as our Leader is sinking, and that if you continue your softness on Terrorisim, you will be promptly voted out of office.

      Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Soldiers don’t have that problem.

      Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for us and you:

      1. Jesus Christ

      2. The Australian Soldier.

      3. The British Soldier

      4. The Canadian Soldier, and

      5. The US Soldier !!!

      One died for your soul, the other four for your freedom.

      We hope you take this to heart.
