It’s almost like the Obama administration is on “bad idea commission” and getting paid extra for every stupid idea they can come up with. But even they probably won’t be able to manage to follow through on something as dumb as holding civil trials for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and some of his psychotic colleagues in Manhattan:
White House officials have told the Justice Department to consider other venues for the 9/11 terror trial that was to be held in lower Manhattan, the Daily News has learned.
The decision came after Mayor Bloomberg and other politicians across the state railed against President Obama’s plan to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in Manhattan Federal Court.
Attorney General Eric Holder now has to think of other places where the trial could take place, officials said.
Yet another big-time public relations, political and legal disaster from a presidency that is backfiring like a poorly maintained ’72 Buick Skylark. So far this administration has been like a year’s worth of watching Charlie Brown trying to kick a football with Lucy holding. The Three Stooges thought things through better.
So, what city will be lucky enough to eat the $400 million tab for these animals’ trials now that it probably won’t be in NYC? I vote to send ’em either to Berkeley or Dick Durbin’s basement.
Won’t it be awesomely funny if KSM ends up back at Gitmo?
