Attorney General Casts Insult After Injury

I heard the news today like everyone else did, and I sat for some time thinking of what it would mean.  Something that has been said over and over still sticks in my mind.  Say this phrase to yourself and tell me in all honesty if it does not make you feel sick to your stomach.  “The mastermind, and his helpers, responsible for the heinous attack against America will be tried in our court system, benefitting from all the rights of an American citizen under our constitution.”  That thought went through my head and I honestly felt physically sick.  Then I watched the Attorney General speak.  He was asked a simple question that he refused to answer.  He was asked what would happen if something went wrong, and there was a mistrial, or a hung jury, or Gods forbid he is found innocent even after confessing.  Not only did he make a statement that did not answer the question he made a statement that craps all over our justice system, while professing that this trial will show the rest of the world how great our system is.

“I would not have authorized the bringing of these prosecutions unless I thought that the outcome . . . would ultimately be successful,” he said. “I will say that I have access to information that has not been publicly released that gives me great confidence that we will be successful in federal court.”

Correct me if I am wrong, but if we already know he is guilty then why are we even having this sham of a trial?  How will this, in any way, show the rest of the world how we hand out justice?  Don’t get me wrong, I think this guy, and his associates should face the most stringent penalty we can hand out, but there is too much that can go wrong.  How often do we hear of cases being thrown out on technicalities?  How many people go free because the defense found some ridiculous loophole in our legal system?  If the prosecutors cannot show, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this guy did it he will go free.  He will be released on U.S. soil, to do what he will.  That is the answer that our Attorney General seemed to uncomfortable, or too scared to say.  There is a chance that these guys will walk, even after bragging that they were the ones that orchestrated this attack.

This is another example of politically correct, lovey dovey bullcrap.  Let’s call a terrorist a terrorist, and a war crime a war crime.  I am tired of being told not to jump to conclusions, giving the benefit of the doubt to murderers, and feeling sorry for ‘freedom fighters’.  If you hate this country, or you want to kill Americans, then get out!  If you actually do it, then the wrath of the greatest nation in the world be upon you!

Sickening, just plain sickening.

  1. Another, somewhat parallel, story concerns a few SEALs and the capture of the man behind the murder of four Blackwater security agents. If you haven’t heard about it already, you’d probably find plenty online.

    It is indeed troubling that Holder & Co. are bringing KSM into civilian courts. But, the absolute most frightening, and hypocritical at the same time, comment was Holder stating that even if aquitted, he wouldn’t be released. If KSM _is_ aquitted, then there will certainly be a LOT of upset people in the US, and I suspect that anger will be shared among red and blue states – there is little, if any, sympathy for this the likes of KSM. But, if he is aquitted and then _not_ released, it’s a disturbing statement by this administration that if our courts’ decisions aren’t to our liking, then the decision can just be ignored.

    Make no mistake, even if aquitted I still wouldn’t want this guy released, but even then I am being the same hypocrit as Holder. If I am happy that he isn’t released, then it’s entirely an emotional decision, when our republic is founded on the fact that our laws can protect even slime like KSM. But I also don’t want politicians who feel they can ignore the absolute foundation of our system of justice. I agree with Holder that aquittal is not an option, but “not an option” is a stinging foreshadowing of some pols’ careers.

    Nonetheless, I predict that KSM will be tried and convicted. Then the administration will run around trumpeting how great our system of justice is. But, in a parallel universe, there is an angry mob gathering on the white house lawn.

    • The sad reality is Holder and company think, or say they think, this will show the rest of the world how fair, and benevolent we are, but our enemies only see our justice system as weak. The same people we want to ‘show our fairness to’ are the same people that laugh at the way we conduct justice. It’s a joke on so many levels, and clearly a political move.
