Yesterday, Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina excoriated Eric Holder. He ripped Eric Holder to shreds. I love it! The Attorney General had much trouble responding to Graham's questions. Graham is right. The only reason Obama is backing Holder's decision is to appease his leftist base which is full of loons. This unconscionable decision will make history, and in a very bad way. The decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the 9/11 mastermind, and four other terrorists has nothing to do with the security of this nation, safety of Americans, or even about justice. This is purely politics of the worst nature. This decision only has the potential for harm. It will expose and increase the threat level for all Americans.
We must put pressure on the Obama administration to reverse course, to think about the safety of The United States of America and all of its citizens, so that they will try these terrorists in a military commission instead of trying them in a federal court in New York City.
