Military Oath

I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

The above says it All, whether policy of orders given to invade and occupy others are wrong or right, service in our Military means just what is said by those taking the oath of Military Service to Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States!

Terror on Trial

In the above video report they play a clip from the limbaugh radio show. First I would like to say, I agree with this limbaugh statement.

Second I would like to pass along a “Thank You rush for admitting, On Air to your so called mass audience, even with the video provided,  very publicly that which most of the world, especially most in this country, already know, Crimes Were Committed By The Previous Administration, Thank You!” For you also, with that short statement stated what the reality of yours, and those like you,  Fear Actually Is!!

The World still waits for this Country to be what we say we are and not act and do what we condemn others for, and that wait means to adhere to our Constitution and Our Laws as well as the International Laws we helped to write and prosecute!

On 11.13.09, the evening of the decision by the Attorney General he was interviewed on the PBS News Hour, just below is the opening segment to the interview.

Part 1: Alleged 9/11 Mastermind Among Detainees to Face Trial in N.Y.

The Justice Department on Friday announced plans to try suspected 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees, in federal court. Ray Suarez reports.

JIM LEHRER: The self-proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks will face trial in federal court in New York City. That announcement came from the Justice Department today. Four other detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will also be tried in New York.

And five more will face military tribunals.

Ray Suarez has our lead story report.

RAY SUAREZ: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed topped the list today. He has claimed direct credit for organizing the airliner attacks of September 11.

In Washington, Attorney General Eric Holder said Mohammed and four co-conspirators will be tried just blocks from where the Twin Towers fell.

ERIC HOLDER, U.S. Attorney General: The Justice Department has a long and a successful history of prosecuting terrorists for their crimes against our nation, particularly in New York. Although these cases can often be complex and challenging, federal prosecutors have successfully met these challenges and have convicted a number of terrorists who are now serving lengthy sentences in our prisons…>>>>Rest of Transcript Here

The discussion with Jim Lehrer and Attorney General Eric Holder.

Part 2: Holder: 9/11 Trials Will Weigh ‘Crime of the Century’

“This is a case that will be treated as any other criminal case.”

In an interview with Jim Lehrer, Attorney General Eric Holder discusses the decision to prosecute the alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees in civilian federal court in New York, calling the stakes “enormous.”

JIM LEHRER: I talked with the attorney general this afternoon at the Justice Department.

Mr. Attorney General, welcome.

ERIC HOLDER: U.S. Attorney General: Thanks for having me.

JIM LEHRER: You said this morning that deciding to prosecute these five 9/11 detainees in civilian federal court was a very tough decision for you to make.

Why so?

ERIC HOLDER: The stakes are so enormous. We’re talking about what literally is the crime of the century.

Where should this case properly be housed? How do I deal with the concerns of the victims? Am I placing it in a jurisdiction where we can handle the security? There were a whole series of questions that I had to ask, and answer, before I was able to say that this was the right decision to make.

JIM LEHRER: Who did you consult while making this decision?

ERIC HOLDER: I talked to the prosecutors in the Justice Department, prosecutors from the Department of Defense, people on the staff here at the Justice Department, people at Defense, a whole variety of people, who shared ideas, thoughts, gave cautionary ideas as well, and, using all of that, came up with the decision that we announced just earlier today.

JIM LEHRER: Did you run it by President Obama?

ERIC HOLDER: Just informed him of the decision…>>>>Rest of Trascript Here

9/11 Trial, Healing or Reopened Wound

This is a start, but the Country needs to look deep within and bring forth all the charges against our own who with their extremely failed policies, and outright crimes, created the next generations of criminal terrorist, know no borders.

That is our legacy we are leaving to those who come after us, our children’s children and theirs!!

The World Still Waits!!

    Editorial: ‘Unalienable rights’? No more

    The foundational document of the United States of America, the Declaration of Independence, declares it to be “self-evident” that “all men … are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” Governments, it says, are instituted “to secure these rights.” The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has now amended that to read “unless the government claims national security, in which case it can do pretty much whatever it wants.”

    If this is how the government “protects” us from terrorism, we have lost more than we have gained…>>>>
