Obama Wanted to Try Osama

Great idea, Barry: Bring public enemy #1 to the U.S. for a trial by what? Ajury of his peers?

This little tidbit of information is being reported in a book about the events surrounding the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound by Mark Bowden:

NEW YORK, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama considered putting Osama bin Laden on trial if the al-Qaida boss had given up when Navy SEALs raided his Pakistan compound, a book says.

Obama said he leaned toward the possibility of bringing bin Laden to trial in the U.S. federal court system for masterminding the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, journalist Mark Bowden says in "The Finish," to be released Oct. 16.

"Frankly, my belief was if we had captured him, that I would be in a pretty strong position, politically, here, to argue that displaying due process and rule of law would be our best weapon against al-Qaida, in preventing him from appearing as a martyr," Obama is quoted in the book as saying.
I don't like to put a lot of stock in books that purport to quote people third-hand verbatim. But when you consider that Mark Bowden is a respected writer that hasn't been known to get things wrong, Barry is a lying leftist who hasn't gotten ANYTHING right in his entire political career -- particulalry the presidency where it counts for all of us -- and this just seems like the kind of idiotic thing Barry would say, this version of the events seems perfectly plausible. After all, Barry and the most corrupt attorney general in U.S. history are still planning to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed in civilian court in this country.

These leftist ideologs, like their cheerleader, the court jester of Fox News, Juan Williams, who put forth this opnion on The Five today, believe that terrorists deserve "due process" of U.S. law. I got news for you, morons, foreign terrorists don't get due process and neither did the 2973 Americans they killed on 9/11.
