The Barack Obama Administration Blame Game Continues … When will this Administration take ownership and stop the blaming others for their screw ups? Obama has certainly shown the American people that the “Buck Stops” no where with him. This is getting real old … Obama plays politics with an issues against the will of the people and then blames Republicans, yawn!
In an interview this weekend on CBS’s Face the Nation, Obama AG Eric Holder told CBS News chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer that it was politics that delayed bringing self-proclaimed September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to trial. Who is playing politics with the KSM trial, YOU? The reason why KSM has not faced justice is squarely on the shoulders of Holder and Obama.
I BLAME YOU!
In an exclusive interview with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Attorney General Eric Holder said that political posturing has delayed some of the administration’s top priorities — bringing self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to trial and closing the prison and Guantanamo Bay.
Holder said the administration will make a decision as to where [the KSM] trial will occur “as soon as we can.”
“But we are bound and determined to hold Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and those who worked with him… responsible for happened on September 11,” he told Schieffer during the interview, which took place at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen, Colo.
Holder wants to try Mohammed in civilian court, but some others say the trial should take place in the military tribunal system. The Obama administration is still in the process of determining what course of action to take, but Holder expressed frustration over the debate.
Barack Obama was for military tribunals before he was against it. Remember when Senator Obama in 2006 was singing a much different tune?
Are these people serious? The people playing politics with the KSM trial is Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder. The trial of KSM (Khalid Sheikh Mohammed), the mastermind of the September 11, 2001 terror attack was set and going forward in a military tribunal. It was Holder and Obama who played politics and halted the proceedings. Had they not done so, this case would have been over months ago and justice would have been served to this terrorist. It was Obama and Holder stopping the military tribunal which inturn created the possibility for KSM to have a show trial in NYC and make a mockery of justice.
The question that needed to be asked is why did Holder and Obama stop the military tribunal and insist on this being a civilian trial? No party politics there, huh? As Hot Air states, let’s get one thing perfectly clear who played politics with the KSM trial.
Instead, Obama wanted to score political points at the expense of his predecessor and canceled the trial — even though the White House later conceded that they would have to use the military commission system for other Gitmo detainees.
The only people who politicized this process are those in the Obama administration who insisted on delaying KSM’s commission for their own political goals. I’m not sure whether this is more chutzpah than projection, but it’s certainly both.
It was Obama who as a Senator was for a military tribunal, until he was against them to make political hay and attempt to embarrass GWB. That was until the topic got way to hot and he bit off more than he could chew and was forced to do a 180.
