President Obama (pbuh) and his Attorney General and all of their supporters on the left defend their decision to try KSM in an American civilian court by holding our legal system up as a model for the world to admire. With no rationale based on reality they are simply saying, “Look at us, aren’t we fair? Please like us!!!” It’s baffling that they dismiss the whole part of our legal process that led to the creation of the tribunals… not American civil court… to handle this unique situation.
Maybe it shouldn’t be baffling, I should not be surprised by the juvenile way Obama and his Administration dismiss and ignore anything of value if it can be tied to George Bush. So what can one conclude about Obama as a result of the decision?
1. He has a knee-jerk reaction to erase Bush from all memory of anything that might be considered good or effective. Conversely he has a knee-jerk reaction to blame Bush for everything that isn’t perfect.
2. He has an unnatural and unhealthy need to be liked… and to be liked on his terms. He’s going to give birth to a new name for extreme narcissism… something like Barackissism.
3. He is either extremely naive about the nature of our Islamist enemy or he shares some of their agenda… The result is the same.
The decision is so wrong and so disturbing to me, but I’m not alone, some of Holder’s supporters agree.
A third signer of the letter [in support of Eric Holders’ appointment as Attorney General] who leaves no doubt about his opposition to the decision is Joseph DiGenova, former United States Attorney for the District of Columbia. “It’s insanity, absolute insanity,” says DiGenova. “I think it’s a reckless decision borne of ideology, absolutely bereft of any reason for it happening. It’s just mind boggling.” DiGenova cites a long list of reasons for not holding the trial in an American civilian court: “It’s going to be extremely difficult to make a case against him. The litigation involved in the case is going to be lengthy. You make New York a target again. The judge is going to have protection for the rest of his life. Some of the jurors may want protection for the rest of their lives.”
Both DiGenova and his wife, former Justice Department and Senate Judiciary Committee official Victoria Toensing, signed the letter endorsing Holder. While DiGenova does not say he would not sign the letter if he had it to do over again, the Khalid Sheikh Mohammed decision is troubling. “It would have raised serious questions,” DiGenova says. “This type of thing is really important — it’s very disturbing and so, so unnecessary.”
Yes it is… very disturbing and So Unnecessary.
