    It seems nineteen Democrat Congressmembers have written a letter to President Obama, asking for the federal government to shell out some big bucks to New York for the criminal trial of Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his co-conspirators.

    So let's get this straight. These puswads insisted that this act of war against the United States - 9/11, for those of you who haven't been following along - should be treated like a simple violation of the civilian criminal code; these guys should be treated like they stole an old lady's purse, and then shot the old lady, rather than like they stole three airplanes and flew them, full of passengers, into the World Trade Center, also full of people.

    But NOW . . . oh, NOW these belly-crawling, terrorist-aiding dumbasses have noticed that this is just a BIT bigger than a everyday, run-of-the-mill crime, and MIGHT bring extra problems with it, like . . . oh, I don't know, an insanely high risk of more terrorism in the city these animals already ravaged? Not to mention that there might one or two (thousand) people in the area who would - justifiably - like to have these evil bastards' cojones for trophies? So gee whiz, this is going to cost a bundle for added security and the federal budget should bear the brunt of it.

    Seriously, have people in New York ever considered the possibility of electing people with three-digit IQs? Who has been keeping these possibilities a secret from these rocket scientists all this time?

    My first instinct is to say: screw you, suck it up. You troglodytes wanted this to be a civilian criminal matter. That makes it New York's problem now. I'm not aware of the federal government making a habit of funding any other trials in the civilian courts. I feel a little sorry for the people of New York, who have been raising a ruckus about these concerns ever since Obama announced this decision. Their local politicians are trying to put a stop to it. On the other hand, they elected these mushbrains, so I don't feel THAT sorry for them. What goes around comes around.

    Yes They got mesmerized by Obanas magic money machine and then reality hit. Holder needs to reversa his decision. Its the only compromise.

    Thank you for that useful post Jillian (gotta get that sarc mark). Do you think the people of NY should have to pay? I believe they've estimated the costs at $400 million.

    i'm sorry. Did you say anythign of any value which required that I take the time to bother with you?

    ny'ers vote for repubs when they're worth voting for.

    hint: ny'ers are idiots if they vote for someone who thinks they're not part of the "pro america parts of the country". and it was kind of important that we voted for someone who knows how to read a presidential daily briefing.

    So that's a "yes"? Or a "no"? Should the feds or the city pay for the trial? Personally, I don't think it's fair to the victim's families. However, if the precedent is that the city pays...

    If the President and his Attorney General had left well enough alone all these men would already have been tried. KSM plead Guilty in the Tribunal. More money down the drain because Obama wants to make a statement against Bush. He knows he can not get any real evidence against Bush so he will settle for this crap. A waste of time, money and resources for a show trial the likes of which even the Kremlin would be proud.

    I generally go to NYC 4 or 5 times a year. I have a feeling I'll stay away during those two or more years. That $400 million doesn't include loss of tourism dollars.

    If the last administration had any intention of giving them military trials, they'd have been tried during the six years the last administration had them.

    I'm still trying to figure out why it was ok for bush's admin to try the shoe bomber and blind sheikh, but now we've suddenly lost our ability to hold a trial.

    I think NY should always have more funds to control terrorism. Do you think NY should get what Iowa did like what happened under the last admin?
