In the wake of Attorney General Eric Holder’s boneheaded announcement, Friday, that he plans to try 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in federal court in New York, everyone under the sun is citing the Zaccarias Moussaoui trial as an example of the bad that can happen. It’s all stuff I warned you about, a year ago.
Is KSM the Next Karim Koubriti?
But a better case for an accurate preview of what can go wrong is that of USA v. Karim Koubriti and his other co-defendants in the Detroit terror trial. As I’ve noted in excruciating detail, after Koubriti was found guilty by a federal jury in Detroit, his lawyers and PC prosecutors conspired to get the verdict overturned. The Justice Department (yes, it was President BUSH’s Justice Department) indicted the prosecutor (who beat the absurd charges). Terrorist Koubriti is now living in my hometown making his way to becoming a U.S. Citizen (with the DOJ’s help). And he’s suing the prosecutor, Richard Convertino. That’s what can happen here with KSM and his buddies. I’ve written about this case in the New York Post, but far more on this site.
Yes, the Moussaoui is a stark example of the dangers, and the main danger we noted on this site that seems to have been skipped elsewhere is that the inane jury was like Dr. Phil a/k/a “Dr. Feel” audience members. They were lulled away from giving Moussaoui the death penalty through absurd Dr. Feel psychobabble–you know, the kind that Dr. Feel enunciated during a CNN appearance making New Age excuses for Islamic terrorist Nidal Malik Hassan and his Fort Hood rampage. The Moussaoui jury was forced to read a ridiculous sob story book by Moussaoui’ s brother, “Zaccarias Moussaoui, Mon Frere,” about how both of them were abused as kids. So sad, too bad. It was utter BS. But the Dr. Feel-style jury bought it and spared his life.
