Reining in Eric Holder
The New York Daily News reports that the White House is ordering the Department of Justice to move the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed presently scheduled to take place in Manhattan nor far from the site of the former World Trade Center whose destruction he allegedly masterminded:
White House officials have told the Justice Department to consider other venues for the 9/11 terror trial that was to be held in lower Manhattan, the Daily News has learned. The decision came after Mayor Bloomberg and other politicians across the state railed against President Obama's plan to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in Manhattan Federal Court.
I think no one wants it in NYC. And I bet soon Obama will learn Congress will not vote to transfer the jihadis to the US for trial. This decision to try jihadis as criminals here in the US is the most unpopular decision the administration has made.While I am sure holder's views reflect Obama's, I think Obama will continue to distance himself from them.
