    Hey , who's pathetic and fiscally stupid idea was this? To try terrorists close to ground zero, New York City, give them citizen rights and a pulpit to spew. Oh come on now, this is just ridicules..:cuckoo:

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

    Estimates put the cost of a multiyear terror trial in lower Manhattan at about $200 million a year. Leaders have suggested other venues for the trial, such as the Military Academy at West Point or Stewart Air National Guard Base in upstate Newburgh.

    The federal government has said they would reimburse the city for the costs, most of which cover overtime for increased security, but they won't reimburse business owners for lost revenue during the chaos, said Steven Spinola, president of the heavyweight business group Real Estate Board of New York.

    "Is the federal government going to give the city $1 billion plus the cost of propping up businesses? I don't think so," Spinola said.

    What a fucking joke. How much longer will the government be able to bleed Americans dry to Celebrate 9E? Know why modern Empires fall? The dumbasses who finance them actually believe the Policy makers care. Why not put the suspected terrorists in Office in DC? Other than names would anyone be able to tell any difference? Maybe Obushama could create the Department of "Stupid Fucking Tax Payers Are Clueless."
