Administration Endangers Americans: Send Eric Holder Back to Law 101

Terrorists should be tried under military law. The administration's decisions to send five terrorists to New York to be tried under civilian criminal law is insanity. Obama has already compromised the trial by saying that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind behind 9/11, will be tried, convicted, and executed. How can the man get the "fair trial" assured to him under American law? He and his cohorts are being treated like American citizens instead of like enemy combatants. Obama has set up a situation where these men may very well get off on technicalities. Is he just plain stupid or is it deliberate? Hard to imagine the man described as the smartest president we've ever had being so dumb or so crazy. So what's the alternative? Crazy like a fox?

I have to say I was surprised with the absurdity of such a decision. It doesn't make any sense no matter from which point of view you are trying to look at it. Was there a reason to re-qualify the war crime and change it into a common murder when KSM and his four co-operators where held as POWs for years? Is there reason why to take a risk of these people being acquitted? There's no logic in that and I would like to know at least one reasonable motive that could lead to this. Lorne
