Gitmo North returns: Obama’s shady prison deal by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 If you thought President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had given up on closing Guantanamo Bay and bringing jihadists to American soil, think again. Two troubling developments on the Gitmo front should have every American on edge. The first White... Read More
We're back to square one on Khalid Sheikh Mohamed and his murderous band of jihadists at Gitmo. Sgt. Tim Sumner of 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America reports that the Office of Military Commissions has notified 9/11 families this evening that charges will be re-sworn Tuesday. Thank jihad-coddling Attorney General Eric Holder and... Read More
The blabbermouth media formed a stampede over the weekend in a rush to publish a new round of Wikileaks documents on al Qaeda and Guantanamo Bay. The Memeorandum round-up is here and the breathless tick-tock on how lib outlets stepped all over each other to get the "scoops" is here. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air... Read More
Scroll for updates... Buzz out of Washington this morning is that the Obama administration has signaled it will end efforts to try 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a civilian trial and instead will use the Gitmo military tribunal system pursued by, yes, George W. Bush. AG Eric Holder is reportedly holding a 2pm Eastern... Read More
The dream of Cirque du Jihad in the Big Apple lives. The White House won't rule out multiple Gitmo civilian trials in NYC, despite bipartisan opposition and massive public outrage over the costs, risks, and recklessness. Still stuck on stupid, via the NYDailyNews: Related: Team O's civil-liberties woes White House spokesman Robert Gibbs declared last... Read More
Marc Thiessen's must-read book, Courting Disaster, skyrocketed to #9 on the NYTimes best-seller list this coming week. Thiessen has relentlessly exposed how the Left and Obama are sabotaging all the effective intelligence-gathering programs that the Bush administration created to prevent jihadi attacks after 9/11 -- and how media propagandists are helping them. Here's one of... Read More
"From A to Z."
Watch this video and pass it on (*Update*: Traffic seems to have brought the vid down; the producer is working on getting it back up. Have patience. It is worth it!):
Hell has frozen over. Pigs are sprouting wings. The left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has removed a moonbat judge from the botched LAX millenium bomber case and ruled that his sentence was too short, unreasonable, and in blatant violation of federal sentencing guidelines. The story is breaking. Seattle P-I reports: The 9th U.S. Circuit... Read More
My syndicated column today expands on Tuesday's blog post about the Aafia Siddiqui terror trial debacle in New York City (see here for background/links) and what it portends for the future. Yes, I call it Cirque du Jihad. The White House and DOJ are now scrambling to cook up contingency plans for their jihadi show... Read More
Photo credit: Urban Infidel. President Obama's rhetoric meets reality, again. After pushing hard to try Gitmo detainees in New York City, the White House has now ordered the Justice Department to try and find other venues. They are still insisting on shipping suspected jihadis to federal courts on U.S. soil. It's going to be a... Read More
The Siddiqui circus.
You want a glimpse of the future that crime-coddling Eric Holder and the White House will be bringing up en masse? Right now, in New York City, jihad scientist Aafia Siddiqui is on trial. See here, here, here, and here for background on the MIT-trained microbiologist/suspected KSM operative who went missing after 9/11 -- and... Read More
Obama brings the Gitmolympics home by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2009 President Obama’s hometown cronies lost their bid to bring the 2016 Olympic Games to the Windy City. But this week, they got a consolation prize: the Gitmolympics. On Tuesday, the White House went public with its official plans to purchase the Thomson Correctional... Read More
Navy SEALs Face Assault Charges for Capturing Most-Wanted Terrorist:
That didn't take long, did it? (Source) Remember: It's all about putting America on trial, not the jihadists. *** Remember the Dancing Itos from the OJ Simpson trial farce? That's going to look like Pulitzer Award-winning drama after the 9/11 show trials are through:
"Their assessment is negative."
One of the Gitmo defendants' lawyers confirms the obvious: The civilian trials for 9/11-linked enemy combatants are nothing more than a grand excuse to use our legal system to bash America and spread the jihadi virus on the world stage. Bleeding-heart Barack Obama and
It's Friday. The president is flying off to Asia. Congress is not in session. Perfect time to drop a bombshell on the American people: The Obama administration is bringing 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed to New York City for a civilian trial. No, it's not a joke. Via the NYT: Here is
Attorney General Eric Holder's old pals at Gitmo detainee-repping Covington & Burlington give this latest news two thumbs up. Way up: Congress took a step toward President Barack Obama's goal of closing Guantanamo Bay prison on Tuesday when it cleared a measure allowing foreign terrorism suspects held there to face prosecution in the United States....

Steve Hayes has the scoop on how "the Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan," according to GOP Representative Mike Rogers, "who recently met with military, intelligence and law enforcement officials on a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan."...

LAX bomb plotter Ahmed Ressam reneged on his deal with the feds and continues to play games with prosecutors. They requested that a federal judge double his sentence for terrorism-related convictions. The judge (more on him in a moment) refused: Ahmed Ressam was resentenced this morning to 22 years in federal prison for conspiring to... Read More
What's that sound? The thunder of left-wing lawyers and Gitmo detainees jumping up and down for joy at the Supreme Court's ruling this morning. Brace yourselves. Dissenting Justice Antonin Scalia warns that the ruling "will almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed" and concludes "The Nation will live to regret what the Court has... Read More
Defeatists defeated.
Scroll down for updates... I've been keeping you up-to-date on the FISA fight in the Senate (see here and here). This morning, a series of votes took place and you'll be happy to know that the defeatist Dems were defeated. Carter Wood at the NAM's ShopFloor blog sums up the votes: The Senate Roll Coll...

Lawyer for jihad.
When we last caught up with the convicted, disbarred, disgraced jihad lawyer Lynne Stewart, she was preparing to teach a legal ethics class at Hofstra U. (Previous Lynne Stewart blogging here.) The New York Post editorial board brings news that a three-judge panel met earlier this week to consider prosecutors' requests to mete out a... Read More

DJN: "Lawmakers in the Senate defeated an initial attempt Thursday to strip immunity for telecommunications companies out of a bill reauthorizing the federal government's warrantless wiretapping program.

"I’m al Qaeda. I’m a sworn enemy of you. You, you, you, you, for me you are enemy."
John Rosenthal has an important piece in Policy Review that reveals the hidden truths about the Zacarias Moussaoui trial gleaned from never-before-published transcripts of his testimony. Rosenthal e-mails: "The transcripts reveal that on numerous issues -- charges of prosecutorial misconduct, Moussaoui's supposedly "troubled" childhood, and above all his supposed "desire for martyrdom" -- the media...

"It should be zero."
While the lawyers diddled and fiddled, American soldiers' lives were endangered. The NYPost has the exclusive: Nine hours and 38 minutes. That's how long it took to has
Lots of buzz and left-wing triumphalism over the Fourth Circuit's split decision ruling against the Bush administration's detention of alien enemy combatant Ali Al- Marri. Orin Kerr's quick read and conclusion is up at The Volokh Conspiracy. Kerr tends "to doubt the decision will stand." SCOTUSBlog and How Appealing have background analysis and links.
Via Drudge and the Associated Press, we learn: "Kerry in favor of U.S. bin Laden trial:" So, this is how Kerry proposes to make America "stronger and more secure?" By adopting the Clinton law enforcement approach as the primary means to combat Islamic terrorism? "Fastest, surest route" to a murder conviction? What about the need... Read More
As the Supreme Court gets ready to release its decisions in the enemy combatant cases, the Scott Peterson case offers a helpful reminder that establishing proof of guilt beyond reasonable doubt is a tall order--as it should be in conventional criminal cases. In cases involving individuals suspected of waging war against us, however, a different... Read More
Habis Abdulla Al Saoub is dead--the FBI confirms that he was killed in a shootout in Pakistan last fall--so the feds have dropped terrorist charges against him. Now, that is how to fight the war on militant Islamists. Better to kill them on the battlefield before they hook up with lawyers like this and follow... Read More
