Holder: 9/11 suspects to face military tribunals

WASHINGTON – Yielding to political opposition, the Obama administration gave up Monday on trying avowed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four alleged henchmen in civilian federal court in New York and will prosecute them instead before military commissions.
The families of those killed in the Sept. 11 attacks have waited almost a decade for justice, and "it must not be delayed any longer," Attorney General Eric Holder told a news conference at the Justice Department.
In November 2009, Holder had announced the plan for a New York trial blocks from where the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks destroyed the World Trade Center. That idea was thwarted by widespread opposition from Republicans and even some Democrats, particularly in New York.

*****

It must not be delayed any longer?????
You sorry motherfucker, it's funny that this shit was announced the day the your fucking boss anounced he was running for a second term.
And who in the hell are you kidding when you think the idea of a civilian trial was shot down by political pressure?
It was shot down by We The People. There is no fucking way in hell you could've conducted a civilian trial in Manhattan for one of the savages that was responsible for the deaths of thousands of people in Manhattan that dreadful day and you know it.
WE THE PEOPLE WOULD NOT HAVE STOOD FOR IT.
We would've stormed that fucking courthouse and rioted.
Justice would've been served one way or another.
Dream on, motherfucker.
We The People know the truth.
