Treason is a strong word, but that is exactly what the act of bringing the 9/11 terrorists to New York for a civilian show trial is. This is the most insane act of domestic terrorism ever perpetrated on American soil.
No, I’m not talking about 9/11 here. I’m talking about Barack Obama’s decision to try these terrorists, the CONFESSED masterminds of 9/11, like they were shop lifters.
As has always been the case at a time of war, we have set up military tribunals to deal with all detainees at Gitmo. These Muslim terrorists have been classified as illegal enemy combatants, as prescribed by the Geneva Conventions.
Past that, this particular group, the ones who planned the attacks, and coordinated them, have already confessed and asked to be put to death!
Now I know there are some who don’t want to give these animals the satisfaction of being martyrs for the cause. But that is silly. We can’t fret over whether or not this will "inflame the Muslim street." Enough is a enough. Grant their wishes and end them, end of story.
The perils of bringing these animals to civilian court are many. My guess, knowing Eric Holder’s track record, is he is hoping the case will be thrown out and the terrorists set free. More on that later. But all kinds of things can happen. Evidence can be excluded, idiots can find their way onto the jury, and so on.
Even more dangerous to the nation, these terrorists will indeed have attorneys. Now as confessed mass murders, there isn’t a hell of a lot for these attorneys to do to serve their clients except to put the United States of America on trial. Discovery will be incredibly dangerous, as some of our most secret techniques will be revealed. Many good agents can and will be compromised, as will many state secrets, which is most likely the whole idea.
With this in mind, Sarah Palin has weighed in:
Obama Administration's Atrocious Decision
Today at 3:39pm
Horrible decision, absolutely horrible. It is devastating for so many of us to hear that the Obama Administration decided that the 9/11 terrorist mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, will be given a criminal trial in New York. This is an atrocious decision.
Mohammed and his terrorist co-conspirators are responsible for the deaths of more than 3,000 Americans. Thousands of American families have suffered through the loss of loved ones because of the disgusting attacks launched against the United States, and now this trial venue adds insult to injury, in addition to compromising our efforts in the War on Terror. Heaven forbid our allies see this decision as a reason to become less likely to support our efforts in the future.
Criminal defense attorneys will now enter into delaying tactics and other methods in the hope of securing some kind of win for their "clients." The trial will afford Mohammed the opportunity to grandstand and make use of his time in front of the world media to rally his disgusting terrorist cohorts. It will also be an insult to the victims of 9/11, as Mohammed will no doubt use the opportunity to spew his hateful rhetoric in the same neighborhood in which he ruthlessly cut down the lives of so many Americans.
It is crucially important that Americans be made aware that the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks may walk away from this trial without receiving just punishment because of a "hung jury" or from any variety of court room technicalities. If we are stuck with this terrible Obama Administration decision, I, like most Americans, hope that Mohammed and his co-conspirators are convicted. Hang ‘em high.
I wholeheartedly support the survivors and the families of the victims in their appeal to the president regarding this matter. You can read more about it here.

You have to love the way Sarah puts it, and her feeling about these terrorists. "Hang ‘em high" indeed!
Now why is this more of an act of treason than just a simple act of stupidity that has become a hallmark trait for the Obama administration?
Quite simple. One, this is perilous for no good reason. No reason on earth to do this. These killers have confessed! Two, Eric Holder is demonstrably treasonous, and demonstrably favorable to terrorists.
It was Eric Holder who engineered and advocated the Clinton pardon of the 16 FALN terrorists. You can read about that outrageous act here and here.
It was also Eric Holder this year who intervened after members of the ultra-racist terror group, the New Black Panther Party, were convicted in absentia for their acts of Civil Rights violations and voter intimidation stemming from their appearance at a polling place dressed in paramilitary uniforms and armed with deadly weapons. You can read more from Michelle Malkin here, here and here.
Here is video of the incident:
This doesn’t just lay at the feet of Barack Obama though. Every single member of the United States Senate who voted in favor of confirming this man as Attorney General is guilty as well. Holder’s radical bent was well known, and well discussed before he was confirmed. It would have been very easy for the Republicans to have blocked Holder’s confirmation from ever coming to a vote. Instead, many actually voted to confirm this traitor.
I promise you, the democrats have blocked more than a few Republican nominees over the years, with no good reason, except petty politics. Allowing Eric Holder to be confirmed was a serious lack of judgment, and yet another reason there needs to be a mass turn over in Congress. We need to throw a bunch of these lifetime "you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours" politicians out of this office, and replace them with commons sense leaders.
It’s bad enough to have a Congress full of inept, corrupt, hangers on, but this latest act of stupidity has the potential to bring great harm to our nation. The act of confirming Eric Holder proves these Republican Senators in incapable of using good judgment.
To see a full list of who voted to confirm Holder, those who needs to start looking for a new job, look here.
Look, the bottom line is this. These trials are insane. In all of the history of war, these sort of things have never been tried in civilian courts. These sort have always been tried as enemy combatants and war criminals, by military tribunals.
In our 233 year history, this nonsense has never happened.
That’s not the only issue. The other serious issue is Obama, Holder and the rest of the left wing loons want this not only to damage America, but so they can bash the previous administration of George W Bush. These America hating traitors take their hatred Bush, and America to a psychotic level. They have no problem putting an entire nation at peril, and by extension, the entire world, if it means they can further trash George W Bush, and those who served under him.
This is very much a pattern with Obama. He is voting "present" on Afghanistan, unable, or unwilling to make a decision while our brave troops are dying at the hands on Muslim extremists.
Then you have the issue with the Ft Hood terrorist, the first act of domestic terrorism to occur since 9/11. Obama refuses to call him a Muslim extremist, or a terrorist. Never mind the fact that every single day we find another link between this terrorist and Al Qaeda!
Hmmm, could it be that Obama doesn’t want you to know that Hasan, the Muslim Terrorist who attacked Ft Hood and murdered brave Americans actually worked on his presidential transition team?
Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) has all of the details here.
This is simply outrageous. Either Obama knew this guy, and his terrorist ways, or he has the most incompetent vetting staff in the world. Either way, our nation’s security has been compromised at the very highest level.
But still not as outrageous as bringing the 9/11 terrorists to American soil and civilian court.
Will this finally be the straw that breaks the camels back? Will this finally be the act of treachery that will cause the American people to demand that Barack Obama resign and take the rest of his insane administration with him?
Only time will tell.
