Talking Military Judge Gives Obama the Bird - Refuses to Delay Trail of Terrorist

Military Judge Gives Obama the Bird - Refuses to Delay Trail of Terrorist

At least one military judge is refusing to kowtow to Obama’s suicidal politics:
Military Judge Denies Obama Request to Suspend Guantanamo Hearings
By Peter Finn
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, January 29, 2009


A military judge has refused the Obama administration’s request to delay proceeding for 120 days in the case of a detainee held at the U.S. naval prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, who is accused of planning the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole warship, an al-Qaeda strike that killed 17 service members and injured 50 others.

The decision throws into some disarray the administration’s plan to buy some time as it reviews individual detainee cases as part of its plan to close the prison. The Pentagon may now be forced to withdraw the charges against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi citizen of Yemeni descent. In one of its first actions, the Obama administration instructed military prosecutors to seek 120-day suspensions of legal proceedings in the cases of 21 detainees who have been charged.

The request was quickly granted in other cases when prosecutors told military judges that “the newly inaugurated president and his administration [can] review the military commissions process, generally, and the cases currently pending before military commissions, specifically.”

But Judge James Pohl, an Army colonel, said he found the government’s reasoning “unpersuasive.”

Nashiri is facing arraignment on Feb. 9, and Pohl said the proceeding would go ahead.

Default Speaking of the USS Cole...

The month before Bush took office the intelligence community finally confirmed that the Taliban was behind the attack. Clinton said that he didn't think it would be prudent to retaliate with the transition imminent. Richard Clarke came to Bush and Rice right away with a plan to retaliate.

So I've always been flabergasted as to how the media and the Rightwing folk have never read Bush the riot act over this, let alone why the leftwingers never made a stink over this.

Bush didn't do knee jerk responses and he didn't start organizing his term of office before he was elected.

He is a man that thinks things through and gets all his ducks in a row before acting.

Not always right, not always what we want but he kept us safe with the support of our military & alphabet soup organizations.
