On her Facebook page, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin criticizes the decision of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to prosecute some of the 9/11 conspirators.
In a Friday post titled "Obama Administration's Atrocious Decision," Palin writes: "Horrible decision, absolutely horrible. It is devastating for so many of us to hear that the Obama Administration decided that the 9/11 terrorist mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, will be given a criminal trial in New York. This is an atrocious decision."
She expresses concern that the alleged mastermind "may walk away from this trial without receiving just punishment because of a 'hung jury' or from any variety of court room technicalities. If we are stuck with this terrible Obama Administration decision, I, like most Americans, hope that Mohammed and his co-conspirators are convicted. Hang ‘em high."
She says "this trial venue adds insult to injury, in addition to compromising our efforts in the War on Terror."
Her concerns, she says, include that "Heaven forbid our allies see this decision as a reason to become less likely to support our efforts in the future."
She adds, "Criminal defense attorneys will now enter into delaying tactics and other methods in the hope of securing some kind of win for their 'clients.' The trial will afford Mohammed the opportunity to grandstand and make use of his time in front of the world media to rally his disgusting terrorist cohorts. It will also be an insult to the victims of 9/11, as Mohammed will no doubt use the opportunity to spew his hateful rhetoric in the same neighborhood in which he ruthlessly cut down the lives of so many Americans."
