The War on Terror comes to an end.

The Obama Administration will send 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and four other Gitmo detainees to New York to face trial in a civilian court.
MSNBC reported, via Free Republic:

Self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees will be sent to New York to face trial in a civilian federal court, an Obama administration official said Friday.

The official said Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce the decision later in the morning.

The official is not authorized to discuss the decision before the announcement, so spoke on condition of anonymity.

Bringing such notorious suspects to U.S. soil to face trial is a key step in President Barack Obama’s plan to close the terror suspect detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Obama initially planned to close the detention center by Jan. 22, but the administration is no longer expected to meet that deadline.

The New York case may also force the court system to confront a host of difficult legal issues surrounding counter-terrorism programs begun after the 2001 attacks, including the harsh interrogation techniques once used on some of the suspects while in CIA custody. The most severe method — waterboarding, or simulated drowning — was used on Mohammed 183 times in 2003, before the practice was banned.

Here's a question for DC and other purveyors of the legal black arts... Could Miranda actually become part of terrorist trials?

Another question. Is this a trail of terrorism activity, or the wrong doings of the CIA?

TSWS... This certainly looks like a horror show in the making.

Devil's advocate here, I know. This is an ugly, loathesome decision, but leftist majorities are like fascinating whores. They're full of promise and fancy until they get down to business. Then you suffer.

BTW, Roger Simon is reporting that Rahm wants to return to elective office this year. This means something. Rahm is one rodent who knows when the captain and crew are drunk.

He's not doing this stuff because he's stupid--although he is--he's doing it because it's his mission to destroy this country he hates.
