Remember the hullabaloo surrounding the Khalid Sheik Mohamed case when Attorney General Eric Holder planned to bring him to trial in civilian court.
The noise died down only after the recent decision for him to face trial in a military court at Guantanamo Bay. The original decision was insane and if you remember this AG was also the same one who decided not to prosecute the voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia during the 2008 Presidential election.
President Obama and Holder are probably the most leftist pair that ever held office together and it is not surprising that they would want to make a showcase out of that proposed trial. They abandoned it only after an outcry by the citizens and local law enforcement supported by New York Senators.
When our Navy Seals made their brilliantly executed strike on Osama Bin Laden’s compound and put a bullet through his left eye, they had essentially saved Americans the expense and the grief of putting up with a trial which the left would have demanded. When Holder wouldn’t answer the question of whether he would release the man if acquitted at trial, he insisted only that there won’t be an acquittal. If that is the foregone conclusion why even go through the charade that they planned.
Whether it was by order or volition, I and America rejoice and thank our Navy Seals for a wonderful job in the service of their country in more ways than one. Thank you guys!
