KSM trial non-decision angers 9/11 family members; Obama ‘changes’ stance on Gitmo tribunals

I participated in yesterday’s White House conference call briefing to 9/11 family members; they provided us nothing new as to when or where Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his lieutenant co-conspirators would be tried.
The Washington Times reported this morning:
Debra Burlingame, co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America and a board member of [...]

Vote out those House Democrats who flip-flopped to give KSM a civilian trial (Updated)

Updated, 4:55 a.m. Eastern. Nov 25:
While the win-loss tally for the Gitmo switchers was close to an even split, the Democrats lost the House and their vote to bring terrorists into U.S. federal courts for trial contributed to that loss.

Adam Kokesh ‘runs’ for Congress; is an antiwar activist seeking to return Ben Lujan to the House?

Ben Lujan (D) — Tom Mullins (R) — Adam Kokesh (?)
Incumbent U.S. Congressman Ben Lujan (D-NM, 3) was once considered ’safe’ to win reelection to Congress. Yet Lujan voted for bringing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed here for federal trial, the health care bill, Cap and Trade, and the TARP bailout. In the only recent poll, a [...]

Obama administration misleads and repeats intelligence failures of the past

The Obama administration apparently never made or discovered a mistake not worth repeating.
Counter-terror chief John Brennan incredibly states the four Members of Congress he briefed on Christmas Day should have assumed Flight 253 bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmuttalab was read Miranda warnings. Yet the administration has given mixed signals on if and when terrorists will be [...]
