Please read this post because, after you do, you will likely agree that the people running this country are idiots.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs agreed that part of a civilian trial is the presumption that the accused is innocent until proven guilty, but Gibbs also said that Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, would be “convicted” and “executed for his crimes.”
On Wednesday, CNSNews.com asked Gibbs, “The vice president (Joe Biden) said on Meet the Press that he guarantees that KSM (Khalid Sheik Mohammed) would not be acquitted. Isn’t part of a civilian trial presumed innocent?”
Gibbs said, “Yes.”
On NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, Feb. 14, host David Gregory asked Vice President Joe Biden, “The reason for a civilian trial as given by the president and others was a question of perception: That it was very important that the rest of the world see that we treated Khalid Sheikh Mohammed fairly. But hasn’t the administration already made the decision that even if he were to be acquitted that he would never be released?”
Biden answered by guaranteeing that Khalid Sheik Mohammed would not be acquitted.
“Look, there is no doubt that he would not be acquitted,” said Biden. “The facts we have are overwhelming. We are absolutely confident he will be convicted and for whatever he is tried. The attorney general made the decision that he should be tried in the court of the greatest jurisdiction, which was in New York City.”
Nevermind the fact that the trial isn’t going to be held in New York (Joe must have missed that White House briefing), here’s a prediction:
If the trial judge does not toss the case first, KSM’s “conviction” will eventually get overturned after BHO, Joey “Botox” Biden, and Gibsy are long gone because the government does not have a case once KSM’s [non-Mirandized] confession and the [warrantless-obtained] evidence is tossed out.
KSM cannot have a ‘fair trial’ by a ‘jury of his peers’ in any venue within the United States when you have the President and the Vice President declaring him guilty [on Meet the Press(!), no less]…and the President’s spokesman (to reporters) stating the same thing.
If BHO thought putting KSM through a ‘civilian court’ would show the world “we practice what we preach,” his administration has undone everything he claims he wanted to do.
The ONLY way BHO can get out of the mess he and his team of idiots created is for them to put KSM in the lead car of Joe Biden’s motorcade.
Should our enemies’ arrows blot out the sun, then we shall fight in the shade.
