Stop Obama From Importing Terrorists Stateside

I received this e-mail today:

Today Barack Obama is going to announce that the terrorist mastermind of September 11th, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, will be sent to New York City for a criminal trial in a civilian court.

In that trial, the terrorist will get all the rights afforded an American citizen in a criminal trial, including the right to a fair trial, the right to a taxpayer funded attorney, the right to review all the evidence against him, potentially including classified intelligence matters, the right to exclude evidence against him including, potentially, any confession obtained through enhanced interrogation techniques, etc.

At best, this will be a show trial fit not for the American Republic, but a third world kleptocratic totalitarian regime. At worse, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will gain access to classified material he can then leak to other terrorists while New York yet again becomes a target for terrorists. We have already had occasions in this country where terrorists' sympathetic lawyers have conveyed information, orders, and plans to other terrorists.

You can find more details here.

Call your Congressman and Senator right now. Tell them they should use every tool at their disposal to block this. The number to call is 202-224-3121.

Sincerely yours,

Erick Erickson

This is amazingly poor judgement on the Admin's part, as it puts the CIA on defense. With the civil laws of discovery, the proscution will attack and demand disclosure of domestic secrets.

I hope that those members of the CIA who are called to testify (and others including Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld) will either lie and perjure themselves, or decline to testify and be held in contempt of court.

Good God, this is a travesty.
