Desperate But Not Serious: Numbers Show Justice Won’t Prosecute Terrorists

By Debbie Schlussel
War on Terror? Sounds like there really isn’t one, judging from the ludicrously low numbers of terrorism cases developed by the FBI that are not pursued for prosecution by the Justice Department.
The Justice Department rejected 87% of international terrorism cases referred to it by the FBI during the first nine months of Fiscal Year 2006, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).
TRAC found that the number of terrorism case rejections by DOJ decreased almost ever year since 9/11. In Fiscal Year 2002, there were 118 defendants prosecuted in international terrorism cases, but with most of Fiscal 2006 over, there have been only 19 such defendants prosecuted. It is abysmal:

So much for saying terrorism is a national security problem, not a crime problem–and worrying about the way terrorists use courts assert technicalities and Constitutional rights they shouldn’t have. It seems very few of them ever see a court, or any other type of justice.
After the 9/11 attacks, both the FBI and the Department of Justice announced that they would focus their mission on investigating and prosecuting terrorism cases. But what use is that, if the Justice Department refuses to pursue solid FBI investigations to their logical conclusion?
One other thing: The data shows that in the Eastern District of Michigan, the HEART of Islamic America (and terrorist America), U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III a/k/a “Abu Porno” has an abysmal record of pursuing and convicting terrorism (the worst of any U.S. District handling terror cases). He and his office are a JOKE!:

What “war on terror,” Debbie??
You mean war on “the peaceful Muslim terrorists”??
Come on now Debbie, how short is your memory!!
Our beloved president is calling Islam “the religion of peace,” so how in the world do you want his Justice Department, under his buddy Gonzales, to go after the peace-loving Muslims?
It doesn’t make sense, right?
I think the first people to be arrested are you and me who are bashing the peace-loving Muslim terrorists and their supporters!!

Are you really trying to say we need to do more to fight this one in the courtroom? Debbie I think that is a dangerous idea to support and a waste of energy to focus on these prosecution numbers. It just encourages the liberal justification for the Al-Qaeda “Bill of Rights” and assumes these murderous bastards actually deserve a day in court. Due Process is pristine American ideal that should not be forwarded to these fascist ideologues that prey on civilians.
NO. YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT OF THIS ENTRY, ENTIRELY. WE ARE NOT TREATING THIS AS A NATIONAL SECURITY PROBLEM, AS YOU ADVOCATE (AND I DO, TOO). WE ARE TREATING IT AS A CRIMINAL PROBLEM TO BE DECIDED IN THE COURTROOM, ONLY. AND THESE NUMBERS SHOW THAT WE ARE NOT EVEN PURSUING THAT TO MUCH OF ANY DEGREE. INSTEAD, THE JUSTICE DEPT. IS LETTING MOST OF THE FBI (AND OTHER AGENCIES’) REFERRALS GO DOWN A BLACK HOLE–WITH TERRORISTS AND THEIR PLOTS (USUALLY MONEY LAUNDERING TO TERRORISTS OVERSEAS) ALLOWED TO PROCEED, UNFETTERED.

According to those figures, there’s an awful lot of terrorism plots going on…and those are just the ones we know about.
Solution: Expel the Muzlum barbarians!
