    The mother and father of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl are disappointed with the federal government's decision to try Pearl's professed killer and Guantanamo detainee Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City, according to The Hill.

    Pearl's father, Judea Pearl, told the New York Post that the Justice Department's decision made him "sick to the stomach."

    The foundation started by Pearl's parents, Ruth and Judea Pearl, released a statement to The Hill Saturday night, explaining their disappointment. The Hill:


    We are respectful of the legal process, but believe that giving confessed terrorists a worldwide platform to publicize their ideology sends the wrong message to potential terrorists...

    Remember the Brady Bill? Remember how it got almost unanimous support from conservatives, out of respect for James Brady?

    ...oh wait...

    Daniel Pearl was no American. He was a Jew, a journalist, and an "international citizen", if you will. I am simply pointing this out. I doubt, as the Arabs think, he was a spy for Israel. But he was a Jew and his interests were plain. You can make all the fucking Hollywood movies about him you want, but the truth remains.

    The ironic thing about Mr. Pearl's murder was he was attempting to give Al Qeada a chance to make their case in one of the most respected papers in America, the WSJ.

    This is the nature of the demented hatred of Al Qeada, they can't help but to kill first and think, if at all, latter.
