U.S. Congressman Jason Altmire (PA-04) today welcomed the Obama Administration's announcement that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and other suspected terrorists accused of attacking America on 9/11 will be tried in military courts in Guantanamo Bay. Congressman Altmire has consistently advocated for military trials for these detainees due to national security concerns.
What a goddamn chicken. And that goes for the President too. There is no reason, NONE to not try these defendants in a civilian court. Little Timmy McVeigh was tried, convicted, sentenced, and executed by the civilian system, and he had a heck of a lot of domestic support through the white supremacist and Christian Identity movements. No one hid under the bed. But for some reason, the jihadist boogyman turns otherwise rational people into cowering imbeciles.
