Former Attorney General and Judge Michael Mukasey appeared on this morning's America's Morning News and stated flatly that bringing Kalid Sheikh Mohammad to New York for a civilian trial is inviting a certain attack by Jihadists....more at the Washington Times website where you can hear my interview, alongwith John McCaslin, as the General shocks us with his candid remarks.
"...Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey warned Tuesday that trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other terrorist suspects in Manhattan could become an ugly sideshow.
Mr. Mukasey presided over terrorist trials in New York City before becoming attorney general but said that was before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
"It's simply a fact of life that a jihadist, particularly somebody like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, is looking for a big stage," Mr. Mukasey told The Washington Times' "America's Morning News" radio show. "New York City is the biggest stage in the world, and the attempt will be made to make this as big, spectacular and ugly as possible."
He pointed to the 2006 trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, convicted in Virginia of conspiring to kill U.S. citizens as part of the 2001 attacks and sentenced to life in prison."
