Obama! Hello! The REASON You are giving a trial to KSM is ostensibly for the sake of justice

20 November 2009 at 4:04:01 PM

I completely agree that I want to see KSM brought to justice and put to death or imprisoned for life or whatever else can be done to him. But if you're going to say what the outcome will be, and YOU'RE the one who is recommending a *fair* trial in NY, doesn't that kick the skids out from under the appearance of a fair trial at all?  From Jonathan Turley. So, this *trial* is really a show pony, eh?

It is highly ironic that, in defending the noble decision to grant a fair trial to these men, Obama may have crossed the line in contributing to the prejudicial atmosphere against them. It is always a bad idea for a politician to comment on cases pre-trial. However, the greater damage may have been caused by Attorney General Eric Holder in his original press conference on the decision. The only thing missing from that transcript is a case caption to make it a formal motion for venue change. Holder specifically states that he wanted KSM tried a couple blocks from ground zero and wanted to give New Yorkers the satisfaction of trying one of the villains of 9-11.
