Trial and Terror by Andrew C. McCarthy on National Review Online
Obama is going to destroy U.S. intelligence capabilities and put Americans, particulary New Yorkers, where this "trial" would be held, at incredible risk of attack, for political gain. To discredit Bush and the Republicans for his re-election campaign, which began the day after election in 2008. He risks this country's national security again and again with his kow towing to Islamic regimes that hate us, and he has lost the respect of our allies. We are more alone on the international stage than we were when Bush invaded Iraq.
"From indictment to trial, the civilian case against the 9/11 terrorists will be a years-long seminar, enabling al-Qaeda and its jihadist allies to learn much of what we know and, more important, the methods and sources by which we come to know it. But that is not the half of it. By moving the case to civilian court, the president and his attorney general have laid the groundwork for an unprecedented surrender of our national-defense secrets directly to our most committed enemies."
