Petition Against KSM Carnival Trial

Human Events is offering a chance to speak out against the insane show trial Comrade Obama is granting 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a stone’s throw from Ground Zero. A petition to be sent to Chairman Zero’s pro-terrorist AG John Holder lists the following reasons for opposing this sick spectacle:

1. Trying these terrorists in a civilian court would be a break with 200+ years of American jurisprudence. From British spies during the War of Independence to Nazi saboteurs caught on U.S. soil during World War II, we have tried those who make war against America in military, not civilian, courts. This change in policy sets a potentially catastrophic precedent. This would not happen with a military tribunal;

2. The very real possibility exists that if tried in a civilian court, KSM and the others could be acquitted on a technicality, such as their not having been informed of their Miranda rights, or having been denied a speedy trial. This would not happen with a military tribunal;

3. KSM and the others should not be allowed to hijack our courts, using them as a media circus to promulgate their hate-filled, extremist views. This would not happen with a military tribunal;

4. A civilian trial would send the dangerous message to our enemies that the United States has reverted to its ineffective, pre-9/11 crime-fighting approach to terrorism. This would not happen with a military tribunal;

5. In a civilian trial, valuable intelligence about interrogation techniques and other classified information will be revealed to America’s enemies, giving them a huge advantage in successfully carrying out terrorist plots in the future. This would not happen with a military tribunal;

6. Americans are willing to pay to ensure justice is served. However, the estimated security cost of $200 million for the KSM trial is completely avoidable and a total waste of taxpayer money. This would not happen with a military tribunal; and

7. While Americans are willing and able to stand up to protect themselves and their property, trying KSM and the others in New York invites a terrorist attack, creating a huge, unnecessary risk to our court workers, jurors, and everyone in the New York City area. This would not happen with a military tribunal.

Of course, against these cons we have to weigh the big pro of the opportunity this will present for the leftists running our government to blame 9/11 on pre-Obama America.

Don’t pass up a chance to petition our rulers for redress of our grievances while our “deeply flawed” Constitution is still more or less in force.

Let’s not let them exploit this to score points against America.
