There are only two possible explanations for President Obamas decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other al Qaeda terrorists in a civilian court for their role in the 9/11 attacks. Either he doesn’t understand that the United States is a nation at war and that civilian trials will undermine and compromise U.S. national security and ultimately cause many more American deaths or he does understand that America is at war and doesn’t care about the consequences or thinks they are acceptable in the face of criticism which would be directed toward him for trying Mohammed and his cohorts before Military Tribunals. Whichever it is this decision is the latest indication, no proof, that Obamas fitness to hold office is very questionable at best and that the decisions he makes are detrimental and dangerous to us all.
And make no mistake, this decision was made by the President and the President alone. Trying to make us believe that it was made by Eric Holder, his Attorney General, is a cynical ploy to deflect blame when the inevitable recriminations come. Holder is a potential fall guy, nothing more. The human and political blood that will be shed because of this utterly irresponsible and idiotic decision is on Obamas hands alone, no matter how much he tries to foist it off on someone else.
