Image via WikipediaDo you feel safer with the Obama administration waging the war on terror (excuse me, man made disaster) instead of the Bush administration? I don't. Especially after the news was released this morning that Kahlid Sheihk Mohammed and four other Gitmo terrorists will be put on trial in civilian court in New York instead of the military courts.
Mohammed is generally regarded as the "worst of the worst" of the Gitmo prisoners. He is considered the mastermind behind the terrorist attacks of 9/11. He has also been involved in several other attacks or plots against the US and our allies. KSM is one of three of the Gitmo prisoners that was waterboarded. Thanks to waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques, we were able to get info from him to avert other terrorist acts.
These people have committed acts of war against the United States. They are prisoners of war. They are not, and should not, be entitled to the Constitutional rights that govern the citizens of the United States. Do you really want to take the chance on a guy like Mohammed getting released on a technicality? The government better not fuck these trial up and let any of these pieces of garbage free. Personally, I think they should be "shot trying to escape" if you know what I mean.
