Ronald Radosh writes this morning on his Pajamas Express blog: “Historian Martin J. Sklar Makes the Case for Eric Holder’s Impeachment” for holding the trial of Alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in Manhattan.
There’s a 99.9995 chance this is entirely coincidental, but still, we might as well have some fun with this: the New York Daily News reports this evening, “White House orders Justice Department to look for other places to hold 9/11 terror trial.”
One of Ace’s co-bloggers suggests a possible location:
It’s not a done deal yet and this clowns could double down on stupid but this isn’t exactly how the day after the State of the Union was supposed to go.
If they are looking for suggestions, might I suggest this naval base we have in Cuba? I hear it’s lovely there this time of year.
Update: Or maybe not. According to Fox News’ Major Garrett on Twitter, “Obama still committed to civilian criminal trials for KSM and co-9/11 defendants. [the question] now, or soon will be, [is] where.” Particularly since, “Military charges against 9/11 plotters have been dropped, ruling out military commissions. No timeline yet to resolve talks on alt NYC site.”
