By now, we are all familiar with the acronym NIMBY (not in my back yard). It is currently being touted by the far Right and Republicans in Congress concerning the 9/11 trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) and his accomplices. I was very impressed by the Obama Administration and Attorney General Eric Holder deciding to try these terrorists in civilian courts. It’s already been proven that military tribunals do not work. On top of that, defendants facing the death penalty in military tribunals are not allowed to plead guilty. So that means there will be long drawn out trials when a simple guilty plea in civilian court can be over in a matter of minutes.
Republican representative Peter King (R) of New York and Senator Lindsey Graham (R) of South Carolina are proposing legislation to cut off funding for trying terrorist suspects in the United States. This is a course of action that would further diminish the reputation of the United States throughout the world. We’ve had a judicial system in place for over two hundred years that generally works depending on your point of view. I see no reason to bastardize the judicial process now. What difference does it make when the verdict is already inevitable?
KSM has already pleaded guilty and wants to go to Paradise and receive his 72 virgins as I am sure the rest of his colleagues also desire. I am 100% percent against the death penalty but I don’t get to make the rules. But what the fuck? But what the hell are you going to do in front of Allah? I don’t think you want to be trying to get some pussy in front of your God. I’d like to see them get life sentences and imprisoned in the state of California. Either the Northern or Southern Mexicans would make all of them their prison bitches.
I guess the point that I am trying to make is that the atrocities of 9/11 happened on American soil so the trials of the suspects should be held on American soil. All of the Republican bullshit is a superfluous argument. It’s time to stop undermining the President in bringing these thugs to justice. 9 years of stupidity by the American public must come to an end. Let’s try and execute these bastards as soon as possible. And let’s do it in a way that follows the way of American jurisprudence. American courts for American justice. Fuck the Republicans!
