There are no words to describe how disgusted I feel upon hearing what this administration is about to do. As a New Yorker who lived through the horror of 9/11, I’m appalled, that this misguided, arrogant and self-serving administration would tarnish the memory of those 3,000 innocent lives, by bringing the masterminds of this terrorist act to stand trial in shadows of the Twin, in lower TowersManhattan. They’ve already pleaded “guilty” in front of a military tribunal, why then reopen this process and bring additional heartache to those families…it’s simply a DISGRACE!
President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder should hang their heads in shame, for what they’re about to do. The evidence that was gathered on the battle field and the information extracted by interrogation (water boarding) can be inadmissible in a civilian court and challenged by the defense.
Imagine if these murders should be acquitted on a technicality…it’s not impossible. They’ve already spoken of “gaming the system”…It’s simply a DISGRACE!
Since 9/11, I’ve walked in the Shadows of the Twin Towers many times, and each time I do I’m reminded of my own personal loses's, of dear friends snatched without warning. Sadly this President seems to have a blind side when it comes to defending and protecting this great nation…he seems ambivalent, disengaged when it comes to anything “American”…perhaps this is the change he meant.
Mr. Holder, it doesn't take a genius to realize that New York City will once again be in the cross-hairs with such a high profile case, and although we have the best police force in the world, it only takes one, as was demonstrated at Fort Hood, to create carnage and blood shed…it’s simply a DISGRACE!
