Recently, Kent Conrad (S-ND) remarked that those of us who don't think sleazoids like Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and his gaggle of murdering Islamic fascists should get a trial should "leave the country."
*SIGH!* I know trying to sell Senator Comrade and others of his EcoNazi ilk on the concerns of people with common sense or the virtues of our Constitution is like selling ice cubes to Eskimos, but I'll give it a try. (Can we even say Eskimo anymore ? Are we supposed to call them Warmth Deprived ? Who the hell even knows anymore ? The last thing I need in this stage of my life is to be charged with a hate crime. That or Soviet-style health care rationing, but that's another round of bellyaching for another time.)
Let's look at the concerns of giving these murdering deathpigs their supposed day in court.
--Eric Holder, our wunderkind Attorney General who is supposedly acting independently of Chairman Obama, was instrumental in getting the FALN terrorists pardoned by the outgoing horny hick Bill Clinton. (If you'll recall, these creeps blew up Fraunces Tavern back in 1975.) It has been speculated by Morris and McGann in their awesome book Catastrophe that this was done to pander to Puerto Ricans during Hillary's Senate run in New York. Call me crazy and off my meds, but is this a person we want to have anything to do with prosecuting terrorists ?
--Chairman Obama, in his infinite wisdom, has already poisoned any jury by remarking that KSM and his gang will be found guilty and executed. Any lawyer, even the guys you see on those lame late night commercials while waiting for the 2am repeat of Glenn Beck, could easily claim that Obama was attempting the influence the jury. Scary thing is, the shyster would be right. Way to go, Dear Leader, way to go.
--Speaking of juries, where on God's green (and not to mention cooling) earth are they going to find twelve New Yorkers who haven't heard of 9/11 or don't already have an opinion ? (New York being New York, that opinion can go either way. Remember, this is the place who gave us Chuck Schumer, much to our chagrin.) What are they going to do, put seven year olds on the jury ? By the way, who in the hell would even want to be a juror ? This isn't like being a juror in a case against the mob. al Qaeda isn't going to try to bribe anyone. They'll just mark the jurors and their families for a fiery, horrible end. The jurors would have to go into the Witness Protection Program. (Don't feed me a bunch of compost claiming the government would protect them, either. A couple trying out for a reality TV show just crashed a White House state dinner, so I'd be hard pressed in believing the government can protect anyone.) Literally, any juror in this case could spend the rest of their lives living under a death sentence. I don't think any citizen should have to shoulder that kind of burden just because Chairman Obama has a political axe to grind.
--KSM and his cohorts were not read their Miranda rights when they were captured. (Probably, and I could be spitballing here, that the Bush administration considered them enemy combatants and not US citizens elligible for Miranda rights.) I'm no lawyer and I don't play one on TV, but that would mean that any confessions made by these monsters would be inadmissable in court. I can see it now: Obama and Holder having long faces at a press conference called to announce KSM's confession will be not be admissable and it's all that evil George Bush's fault.
Isn't a scary thought that we have three more years of this ?
