Another gift to terrorist! Atta Boy Obama!
The Obama thugocracy has shelved the planned prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a court filing.
This trial is stopped/stalled indefinitely, the trial of the 9/11 terrorists is not even being discussed. Is it me or does it seem like the Muslim-in-Chief doesn’t want any of his Muslim terrorist brothers to be brought to justice? Is THAT his gift to the Muslim world?
Washington Post In a filing this week in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the Justice Department said that “no charges are either pending or contemplated with respect to al-Nashiri in the near future.”
The statement, tucked into a motion to dismiss a petition by Nashiri’s attorneys, suggests that the prospect of further military trials for detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has all but ground to a halt, much as the administration’s plan to try the accused plotters of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in federal court has stalled.
The decision at least temporarily scuttles what was supposed to be the signature trial of a major al-Qaeda figure under a reformed system of military commissions. And it comes practically on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attack, which killed 17 sailors and wounded dozens when a boat packed with explosives ripped a hole in the side of the warship in the port of Aden.On October 12, 2000, while most Americans slept, a group of Islamic terrorists launched an attack against the USS Cole in Aden harbor, Yemen. 17 American sailors died in the attack and this American warship was nearly lost.
Now, almost a decade later, Obama has decided to stop the military prosecution of the mastermind of the Cole attack.
Commander Kirk Lippold will be joining us at the National Tea Party Unity Convention, just a few days after the tenth anniversary of the attack on the USS Cole. Commander Lippold was the Captain of the USS Cole at the time of the attack. He has been on the front lines of the war on terror and has remarkable insights on the war.
Come hear this American hero at the National Tea Party Unity Convention in Las Vegas, October 14-16. For more information, visit the convention website.
