What’s the reason for the Obama Administration’s insistence that the Guantanamo Bay jihadi be tried in a civilian court? Why endow this jihadi ‘soldier-terrorist’ with what are meant to be American rights?
War crimes – captured combatants – terrorists, are not meant to be tried in a civilian court; that’s what military courts are designed to handle!
The reason is simple; it’s nothing new, but the media won’t tell you why! The government doesn’t want you to know; it would expose the fear and embarrass the President.
Problems present themselves to a civilian court that do not exist in a military court; civilian courts are handcuffed with the need to protect a non-American with American rights – things like “Mirandizing the accused”, chain of custody, long reports timely written by all involved … etc.
Attempting to put this into a battlefield situation, …… makes this whole scenario a huge joke.
Once again Attorney General Eric Holder is at the vortex of a legal whirlpool that could / can, take down the ship of state and the trouble is, – – – it was foreseen and fully predictable – – – so says Representative Rogers (Rep-Mi.) a former FBI agent! He currently serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
The voter intimidation case Holder’s DOJ refused to prosecute, echoes throughout the “halls of justice” …. in fact, thoughtout the entire country as trial Judge Kaplan has now barred the DOJ’s star “witness” from testifying in this — Holder’s “show trial”! Now, Rep. Rogers says, Holder’s DOJ lawyers will be required to litigate every piece of “evidence” they attempt to enter into the trial.
The defendant, Ghailani, confessed to bombing the U.S. embassy in Tanzania 12 years ago – simultaneously with the bombing of the embassy in KENYA!
Ghailani was a high-profile target …. so much so, he was a bodyguard to Bin Lauden. As typically as the Holder DOJ groups’ blowing off the voter intimidation case was, …. this case should have also been a “SLAM DUNK”. Not many, now believe it will be.
Either way, even though the media won’t touch it with a 10′ pole, …. it’s obvious what is going on here!
- Whether he is or not, Muslims believe Obama is a Muslim.
- If a Muslim is responsible for the death of a Muslim, the sentence is death.
- If Ghailana were convicted in a military court, it would require President Obama to sign the death sentence.
- Holder is protecting Obama from that – protecting him in such a way so as to chance (some say “insure”) letting Ghailani go free!
- Otherwise, the entire Muslim world would have a price on Obama’s head! Obama would be hunted down, until he is assssinated.
Though this “combatant / terrorist” is not a uniformed member of a nation at war with the U.S., he should be in military court. Hundreds, are dead at his hand, yet our leaders cower in fear of convicting him in such a way as to require our Commander-In-Chief to sign his death sentence.
All of a sudden, it becomes obvious why no one will talk about it.
FEAR, …. is not a pretty thing!
