Obama Admin: Drops Charges Against USS Cole Bomber

Via Yahoo News:

The Pentagon’s senior judge overseeing terror trials at Guantanamo Bay dropped charges Thursday against an al-Qaidasuspect in the 2000 USS Cole bombing, upholding President Barack Obama‘s order to freeze military tribunals there. The charges against suspected al-Qaida bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri marked the last active Guantanamo war crimes case.

The legal move by Susan J. Crawford, the top legal authority for military trials at Guantanamo, brings all cases into compliance with Obama’s Jan. 22 executive order to halt terrorist court proceedings at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba.

How the hell can the American people trust this guy with protecting us is beyond me?  As someone who lives in NYC I have zero confidence in being able to protect me like President Bush did.
