“Can you give me a case in United States history were an enemy combatant caught on the battlefield was tried in civilian court?”—Sen. Lindsey GrahamSen. Lindsey Graham in one of his rare moments of political clarity dresses down AG Eric Holder and the Barry Hussein Soetoro administration for their decision to make “bad history”, according to Graham, by deciding to try Khalid Shaikh Mohammed (KSM) in New York City. Graham essentially told Holder and the Barry Hussein Soetoro administration that they are making up a situation that could have grave and dangerous implications for America.
Graham skillfully fillets Holder’s reasons for bringing the five terrorists to United States soil. Graham exposes Holder’s stated reasons as arbitrary, capricious and serendipitous opposed to being plans that were carefully thought out and logically based in tradition and law as Holder attempted to imply.
In a stroke of genius Graham asked Holder, “Can you give me a case in United States history were an enemy combatant caught on the battlefield was tried in civilian court?”
After what seemed to be eons of silence Holder managed to sputtered out, “I’llllll have to look at that…” to which Graham punctuated his point with an answer made completely obvious to one and all by now.
“We’re making history here Mr. Attorney General,” Graham said, “I’ll answer it for you and the answer is no!”
With that Graham underscored that there is absolutely no precedence for what the Obama administration and his Attorney General are doing. They're making it all up as they go along, just flying by the sit of their pants. And they’re doing all of this as they put American lives at risk.
This video is well worth the time to see because it makes the case so strongly that there is no justifiable ethical, moral, logical or legal reason why Obama and Holder should bring KSM and four terrorists to New York City to be tried. (see 9:06 min. video)
This is perhaps Graham’s finest hour compared to another dismal example of a presidency and a president’s administration that is headed on a downward spiral to disaster.
I think it is every American’s prayer that Democrats don’t manage to take America into the abyss with them. Maybe the prophecy is true and 2012 will be the end of the world. The end of the world for the Democrat Party that is!
And the end of the world for all who helped them defraud this nation with their lies and their president whose true identity is still held under legal lock and key.
This is one unique time that Lindsey Graham deserves kudos for a job well done.
