Guantánamo 9/11 suspects to go to NYC for trial

Confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his four co-accused will face a federal trial in New York City -- not a military tribunal in Guantánamo, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Friday.

Charges against the alleged al Qaeda kingpin have not yet been filed in the Manhattan court.

But President Barack Obama's administration has decided to abandon a Pentagon prosecution and pursue the case of the mass murder case of nearly 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001 in a civilian setting.

Well they say timing is everything as well as location, location, location! Is it coincidence that these accused men are finally going to get their long overdo trials on the heels of the Ft. Hood shootings? I do wonder.

I also wonder about the states of minds of the accused after 8 years of captivity in Guantanamo Bay with it’s wide spread allegations of tortures and deprivations. I also wonder just what evidence will be withheld based on “National Security Concerns”. I mostly wonder though if the timing of this announcement while emotions still run high in the wake of the tragic events at Ft. Hood is designed to make Americans a little less cognizant about the virtues of Constitutional Court proceedings versus highly censored National Security Concerns Court Proceedings.

Regardless of the government’s intentions or the procedures that might be followed these trials are years over do and might finally provide some opportunity for 9-11 Truth Movement Sources to present evidence contrary to the Government’s version or conversely end the controversy all together if the Government can present a strong, fair, open and legitimate factual case.

Either way events with the War on Terror seem to be in high gear these past couple of weeks and picking up steam.

Hopefully where it is all leading to the American people will have a say in for once!

``They will be brought to New York -- to New York -- to answer to their alleged crimes in a courtroom just blocks away from where the Twin Towers once stood,'' Holder said.


Lot’s of pageantry and high drama to be sure surrounding this announcement but it should be noted that even the Attorney General the highest ranking law enforcement officer in the United States uses the word ‘alleged’.

More and more people who remember and stand up for our sacred Constitutional principles of all people are assumed innocent until proven guilty find themselves under attack for using the word alleged in online forums by those in a rush to condemn people prior to their day in court and an airing of all the facts in a Constitutional Court instead of the highly manipulative network media sponsored court of public opinion.
