The left said, the terrorists could be tried in civilian courts. What could go wrong?
Well, today, we just found out.
The government was ready to try terrorist Ahmed Ghallani for his role in the 1998 African Embassy bombings. Suddenly, on the morning the trial was supposed to begin, Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that the government could not use its star witness against Ghallani.
Ghallani was on the receiving end of “enhanced interrogation techniques.” In other words, he was water boarded. Good for him. I doubt the 224 people killed in those attack or their families would really care whether this terrorist received “enhanced interrogation.”
Judge Kaplan is… wait for it. Drum roll please. Judge Kaplan is a Clinton appointee. I know that comes as a shock to everyone that a liberal president would appoint a liberal judge. And when a liberal judge has the chance to hurt America, guess what. He does not hesitate.
The dumbest lawyer in America, Attorney General Eric Holder said he remains confident terrorists can be prosecuted in civilian courts. As Dr. Phil would say, how’s that working out for you?
Since the first terrorists were captured after 9/11 and put in Guantanamo, liberal lawyers have lined up to help the terrorists. Their help has not simply been limited to trying to make sure they got a “fair trial,” but to help them identify (and endanger) CIA operatives, expose classified information that helps the enemy and generally give aid and comfort to those who want to attack America.
Ghallani is not an American citizen. He does not deserve the protections of the United States Constitution. He deserves to rot in a cell some where for the rest of his miserable life. But, if the liberals have their way that will never happen.
The media reported that when Judge Kaplan announced his decision, Ghallani smiled.
I bet he did.
