Billable Hours and the 9/11 Conspirators

Posted by madjillmom on November 16, 2009

Attorney General Eric Holder’s tortured decision to try Khalid Sheikh Muhammed in civilian court is going to backfire on the Obama administration. At the outset, Holder is saying that KSM will not be acquited. Doesn’t that make it a show trial with a predetermined result? Further, how can KSM receive a fair trial in NYC? I guess it won’t be a fair trial. Do you want to serve on that jury, sequestered for months on end in a NYC hotel? The taxpayers will pay for that bill too.

Most galling to me is the certain knowledge that we as taxpayers will get to pay for the squad of New York attorneys for KSM. Discovery alone will eat up millions of dollars and a maximum of time even prior to a show trial with maximum bloviating by KSM and his cohorts. A military tribunal would cost the salaries of the military lawyers (who are already being paid thus no extra expense) and be brief and to the point. Think about an OJ type trial with the constant press 24/7. Our best hope is that KSM and crew want to plead guilty and be martyred. Somehow, I don’t think they will pass up the chance of a show trial for martyrdom.
