Sometimes, you can't really make stuff up...

Sometimes, it is impossible for fiction to surpass reality.
Trying war criminals in a civil trial is just that weird. So, in light of the idiotic decision to try non-citizens in a court reserved for US citizens with inaliable rights...Many have called for the Attorney General to call this fiasco off...but he's not having any of it.
The Associated Press story writes "Critics of Holder's decision - mostly Republicans - argued the trial will give Mohammed and his co-defendants a world stage to spout hateful rhetoric. Holder said such concerns are misplaced."

But their story started off like this... "The five men facing trial in the Sept. 11 attacks will plead not guilty so that they can air their criticisms of U.S. foreign policy, the lawyer for one of the defendants said Sunday"

Duh. Am I part of the only people in the country that smell the irony here?
OF COURSE they'll spout off hateful rhetoric. You don't have to be a genius to figure that out. And evidently, Holder ain't a genius after all.

He was supposed to be a great legal mind, yet he has set up this idiotic trial where the US will get it's ass handed to it, and he has openly tainted a jury pool in pronouncing that he knows he's got the conviction in the bag.

This thing smells of dead fish at so many levels, it's like watching Romper Room operate this administration.

You seem to think that Holder does NOT want criticism of the US from the terrorists. I must disagree. The Obama administration relishes any and all criticism of our country.

Oh, I agree...they want the criticism of the country's just that the rest of us don't. This is supposed to be a representation of the people's will?
They are content on pushing us off of the relevancy map, so they can reinvent us in their desired image.
It's well past time to begin impeachment proceedings over the level of contempt and outright scheming to undermine the United States. I swore an oath to protect her from ALL enemies, foriegn and domestic.
