Former Attorney General Mukasey Says Obama Wrong on Bringing 9/11 Conspirators to New York for Trial - Video 11/14/09

Here is video of former Bush Administration Attorney General Michael Mukasey saying he believes President Obama's decision to try 9/11 conspirators in New York Civilian courts is the absolutely the wrong decision.

Mukasey said they should be tried using Military Tribunals. Mukasey said Obama is putting Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the others on the "big stage" they want to spew their Jihadist propaganda.

Mukasey said, "Beats me," why the Obama Administration is bringing the five 9/11 conspirators to trial in New York in a civilian court, while they are going to put the USS Cole terror suspect on trial using a military tribunal. He would not speculate as to why.

Maybe if Mukasey had done his job when he HAD the job (instead of sitting on his thumbs) the trials would be over and done with, the way he now thinks they should be conducted.

These buttmunches sit around for eight years doing nothing, and NOW they offer criticism on how to do things properly? If they had done ANYTHING themselves, this discussion wouldn't even be happening!

They have said they wanted to continue getting useful information from them, but I do agree that the Bush Administration should have brought them to trial using Military Tribunals and had this over with. But that does not mean it is a good decision to give them civilian trials in New York.

He's been in custody since March 1, 2003, for gosh sakes! How much more "useful information" could he provide, after being waterboarded 183 times? Sorry, Brian, but that's more of Cheney's BS. The Bush administration wanted these guys buried in a deep dark hole. They weren't EVER going to prosecute them anywhere... probably because the story of the torture, errr... sorry: "enhanced interrogation" would come out. That's the only thing that would mitigate against a slam-dunk conviction in any court anywhere.
