Berlin to send observers to 9/11 trials

Here we find that the Obama administration has struck a deal with Germany to not use any evidence provided by Germany during the trials of the five confessed 9/11 conspirators.  Germany does not have the death penalty, and evidently has persuaded Barack Barry Soetoro Hussein Obama to honor German law in his show trial in New York.

This of course begs the question, what evidence from countries without the death penalty will be withheld for the same reason?  No member of the EU has the death penalty and much of the plotting of the 9/11 attacks took place in EU countries.  So that implies evidence gathered there will not be admissible.

The more information that comes to light about these so called trials, the more it looks like an orchestrated stage show for the terrorists to attack the US through the courts, and quite possibly avoid the death penalty.

And so the real reason for these trials on US soil becomes more clear:  a platform for the Obama administration to weaken our ability to fight the global jihad.

Once upon a time, such actions would be considered treason.  But in our upside down, multi-cultural, politically correct era, defending against any who would attack us is seen as fill-in-the-blank-phobic.

Weather these prohibitions will apply to those tried by military tribunals is yet to be seen.

Such a deal has huge ramifications for the future disposition of accused Muslim terrorists because, if the US does impose the death penalty in these cases, we may find our allies will no longer cooperate in the pursuit of the Global Jihad.


Berlin to send observers to 9/11 trials

Germany will send observers to the trials of the five men suspected of plotting the September 11 terrorist attacks to ensure they are not sentenced to death on the basis of evidence provided by Berlin, a spokesman said on Monday.

Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger "has made clear that observers will follow the trial," her spokesman said at a regular government news conference.

She expects a deal struck between Berlin and Washington that elements of evidence obtained in Germany will not be used to condemn the men to death "would be respected," the spokesman added.

The September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington were partly planned in Hamburg, in northern Germany. Like other EU member states, Germany has no death penalty.

The five men, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, face trial at a courthouse close to Ground Zero, where thousands died after Al-Qaida extremists flew hijacked airliners into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre.

US President Barack Obama, defending plans to try the men in a civilian court, predicted last week that Sheikh Mohammed would be convicted and said the death sentence applied to him.
