'We are going to find out who did this.' And then what?

Bruce Johnson

"We are going to find out who did this."  Says the President.

Are we going to find out like we were assured we would "find out".... in the post Benghazi media aftermath

And many ask...."And then what?" Even when we do find out, nothing seems to happen beyond the discovery. Is finding out the end game in today's world?  Or just in the Obama / Holder world? 

And if the perpetrators are indeed caught, will they get the KSM treatment, or the Nidal Hassan treatment? Likely who ever is brought to justice will not be....brought to justice...in the classic sense.

Our country, for some reason, doesn't want to hurt those who hurt us.  We have become entangled in some type of fowling net of our own weaving and design.  Is it the litigious maze or is it some other factor?

Nidal stills draws breath, and a salary from the United States Army.  KSM apparently won't be put on trial unless it is in New York City.  And it seems equally apparent that neither will meet the penalty they both deserve via the actions of a legal system under direction of Eric Holder.

How would Major Nassan have been treated if he shot up a fort in, lets say, 1944?  I venture to say the matter would have been resolved in weeks rather than years.

The sixth amendment states.." In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence."

But just as the defendant is due a speedy trial, so also it is owed to the nation when crimes against the nation occur.  Our nation awaits the resolution of the KSM, Hassan Fort Hood massacre, and now the Boston bombing.
