What’s the story with the 9/11 trial?

It was in November 2009 that the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, announced that the 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other 9/11 defendants would be tried in federal court in New York City. By January 2010, intense popular opposition to that insane decision forced Holder to pull back from it. But in the ensuing ten months he has still not announced his alternative plans. It is now November 2010, a full year after the initial announcement, and still no decision. What is going on?

My guess: Holder knows that he can’t try Mohammed in civilian court, as public opinion simply won’t abide it. At the same time, it would be unbearable to Holder, as an anti-American, anti-white leftist, to do the right thing and try Mohammed before a military commission in Guantanamo. So he’s leaving the situation in limbo. He’s refusing to do his job, because his job requires him to treat an enemy of the United States as an enemy.

This is what happens when the American people elect a nonwhite, anti-American alien as president of the United States. Let us hope that they have learned the lesson.
