For a bunch of people who called for the closing of Gitmo and decided to Mirandize terror suspects caught on the battlefield to prove to the world that the Bush-era is over and that all detainees will have fair trials, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs sounds like he’s running an Iranian-style “Justice” Department instead of acting as the spokesman for the Gumdrops, Rainbows & Unicorns wing of Camp Hopenchange:
Accused Sept. 11 plotter Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is likely to be executed after being tried and convicted, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Sunday.
Gibbs spoke on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Eric Holder is just as certain of the outcome of the trials as Gibbs.
Even Mohammed might agree that he was getting a fairer shake at Gitmo.
An administration that isn’t willing to admit that there’s a chance they won’t get a conviction in civil court is either dangerously ignorant or believes that the fix is already in. The answer is probably “a little of both,” which is the worst of all possibilities.
Actually, Mohammed will probably die from natural causes by the time the Obama administration finds an American city dumb enough to want to host the trial.
