    White House orders Justice Department to look for other places to hold 9/11 terror tr

    White House orders Justice Department to look for other places to hold 9/11 terror trial

    The White House ordered the Justice Department to consider other places to try the 9/11 terror suspects after a wave of opposition to holding the trial in lower Manhattan.

    The White House took the action hours after Mayor Bloomberg called Attorney General Eric Holder to say he would "prefer that they did it elsewhere."

    "It would be an inconvenience at the least, and probably that's too mild a word for people that live in the neighborhood and businesses in the neighborhood," Bloomberg told reporters.

    "There are places that would be less expensive for the taxpayers and less disruptive for New York City."

    One fiery phone call and Obama folds? What's up there, did he and his henchmen finaaly figure out it was a dumb move from the start?

    Too bad Mayor Bloomberg didn't suggest just sentencing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed since he's already confessed. Now that would save some money time and trouble.

    What in God's name? An inconvenience......Mayor?

    Obama has painted himself into a corner.

    So what lucky city gets to host the terrorist trials?

    This whole thing has exposed without a doubt Obama's view on the war on terror.

    Bloomberg probably told him to get lost.

    And why I agree with Erod. We have the military, the voters, many Republican leaders....all telling him this is a catastophic mistake....and he changes his mind cause the NYC Mayor says it's gonna be an inconvenience.

    Our President is a circus clown, Gentlemen.

    I know three cities that would be perfect for the trial - Boston, San Francisco, or Seattle

    How about Abu Ghraib? I hear Lynndie England is available.

    I agree with that. There's nothing wrong with bringing terrorists to justice. There's nothing wrong with being practical about it either.

    Practicality would indicate that we should have tried him in a military tribunal, in Guantanamo Bay. Everything to conduct the tribunal is already in place. The logistical problem is already solved and we wouldn't be having this political clap-trap.

    Re: White House orders Justice Department to look for other places to hold 9/11 terro

    wow, another huge setback delivered to our dumb doofus by his own party in power

    right up there with gitmo, his debt commission, cap and trade, health care...

    makes one wonder if his capital gains, his nukes, his offshore oil drilling (LOL!) will experience any more shelf life than this movement of ksm to manhattan

    the presidency of empty pronouncements, whispy trial balloons

    state of the union comprehensive is coming to be seen as the classic case

    completely inept politics---the administration suffers all the political PAIN of this mindless maneuver, all for no GAIN

    the president's SURRENDER on this issue invokes the momentous memory of holder's astonishingly amateur testimony before lindsey graham when the addled AG couldn't even answer the undergraduate, pre-law question of PRECEDENT

    holder's hurry-hurry to hustle up miranda rights for mutallab is another major component of this political picture of incompetence and loss

    difi declared yesterday, probably the determiner

    bayh and lincoln wrote mr holder a letter requesting answers---LOL!

    we've already seen what that approach yields

    maybe the AG should ask alito

    the whole thing has exposed without a doubt doofus' view of our war on terror

    no wonder massachusetts mauled him
