A bad joke? You bet! But not as bad a joke as Eric Holder's decision to bring Khalid Sheik Mohammed to New York to stand trial for his role in planning and executing the 9/11 attacks.
By making this a criminal (rather than military) trial, the intelligence gathering operations of the United States will almost certainly be compromised. And do we really want to risk another decision along the lines of "if the glove don't fit, you must acquit?"
Moreover, by bringing 9/11's mastermind into the heart of New York, Holder increases the likelihood that the city will be ground zero for new attacks.
Of course, it seems unlikely that Holder would take such a bold (and preposterous) step without first getting the approval of Barack Hussein Obama. But as the president has claimed no role in making the decision, we don't want to jump to conclusions...
IN ALL SERIOUSNESS: Want to do something about this travesty? Follow this link to "The Bravest," where you can sign a letter from New York's firefighters, police, and the families of 9/11 to tell Obama to stop this anti-American circus before it starts.
