Eric Holder and Ahmed Ghailani

On bringing terrorist Ahmed Ghailani from Gitmo to New York to stand trial for the bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, AG Eric Holder was quoted today,

“The Justice Department has a long history of securely detaining and successfully prosecuting terror suspects through the criminal justice system, and we will bring that experience to bear in seeking justice in this case.”

What a bald face joke. I guess we all have forgotten his leadership role in releasing the FALN under Bill and Hillary Clinton?

The FALN terrorists proudly claimed responsibility for over 130 bombings including the infamous January 24, 1975 murder of my 33 year old father, Frank Connor during the lunch time bombing of Fraunces Tavern in downtown NYC. (please see link for detail)

And how about bringing CONVICTED terrorists like William Morales and Joanne Chesimard here from Cuba to serve their sentences? I don’t hear that mentioned by DoJ. (please see link for detail)
