IT'S GOOD NEWS, BUT IT'S HALF A LOAF:
- THE ENEMY BENEFITS IMMENSELY WHENEVER JIHADO-TERRORSTS ARE TREATED LIKE CRIMINALS AND GET FEDERAL TRIALS.
- NYC WILL BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT THE KSM TRIAL.
- BUT AMERICA LOSES IF KSM GETS A FEDERAL TRIAL ELSEWHERE - AND THAT JUST AS IMPORTANT.
UPDATE: the next morning, the grrrrrreat Andy McCarthy agrees with us.
UPDATE #2: PALIN AGREES , TOO! HERE:
People are celebrating the fact that the Obama Administration is considering relocating the terrorists’ trial from New York to another American city. Yet there’s still no talk of moving the trial out of our U.S. civilian courts to where it should take place – a military tribunal.
Now the administration is backtracking in order to fix its initially blundered decision to try these dangerous terrorists in New York City despite the great danger and cost to New Yorkers. This scenario is all too common in Washington. The tactic is to propose something so outrageous that the public will rise up and demand common sense, and then the White House “concedes” and changes its initial decision to give the impression of newfound reasonability and moderation. But the problem still isn’t solved! The trial location debate becomes a diversion so that we’ll take our eyes off the ball. The point missed is that our President still wants to give these terrorists U.S. constitutional protections in our civilian courts, allowing them to lawyer-up on our dime.
