The perverted decision to try the illegal combatant, Khalid Sheikh Mohamed, in a civil court in New York City is such an Obaman blunder that little further comment is necessary:
I speculate that the DoJ left-wing lawyers from Holder down foresaw an opportunity to put Bush and Cheney on trial using KSM as their tool. Waterboarding could be criticized for excluding evidence and Obaman respect for due process a la Harvard Law School contrasted with cowboy justice. But they didn't think it thru, did they? Bush and Cheney now shine thru as resolute, effective defenders of America, while the Obamans look like agenda-driven political mice, squeaking about DoJ protocols to justify the unjustifiable.
Bear in mind that most of the Obamans have no experience running anything, so decision-taking is something they make up on the fly. When the decision looks bad have Holder say he didn't consult Obama, just told him, then Obama say he told Holder to decide and add that he takes responsibility for everything when pressed. Wouldn't it be nice to say "It's above my pay grade" again?
Another day, another ludicrous decision. Meanwhile Obama's "very close to a decision" on Afghanistan - in or out? win or retreat? God help the poor grunts who have to implement this naif's decisions. God help us all who have this fraud-for-President deciding how to cope with a nuclear Iran.
