The 9/11 Never Forget Coalition is holding a press conference tomorrow morning where they will announce a December 5, 2009 rally that will protest Eric Holder's reckless decision to try terrorists in lower Manhattan.
Congressman Peter King, for my money the best anti-terrorist person we have in the Congress will be there. 9/11 families will be there. Andy McCarthy, who prosecuted the terrorists who bombed the Trade Center in 1993 will be there.
The Coalition Message:
New Yorkers to Attorney General Holder:
"We Will Fight You All The Way!"

Back to Holder. The distinction he has made in deciding to try some enemy combatants in civil court and others in a military tribunal is that the target of the attack determines the type of trial the defendant will receive.
Thus, those who attacked the U.S. Cole, will get a military tribunal. Conversely, the Trade Center thugs get a full civil trial, with all its bells & whistles, because they attacked a domestic target.
That is Holder's argument/rationale.
But that argument holds less water than a man with no kidneys.
Here's why- KSM is the architect of the 9/11 attack. That attack included the Pentagon. Last time I checked, (and admittedly it may have changed under Obama) THE PENTAGON IS THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE UNITED STATES DEFENSE DEPARTMENT.
Since KSM attacked a military target, using Holder logic, why the hell is he receiving a civilian trial?
The answer: There is no logic, no legal rationale, and no precedent for giving KSM a civil trial.
It's purely a political decision made by the President designed to shed light on the CIA, the Army, and all things Bush/Cheney.
Holder has called this the trial of the century.
Remember, the trial of the last century was OJ's.
In the upcoming KSM trial, Holder & his ACLU brethren want to turn the CIA into Mark Fuhrman.
Here's hoping that protests like the 9/11 Never Forgets Coalition will hold will make a difference.
