Eric Holder announced today that five of the 9/11 terrorists currently being held at Guantanamo Bay will be brought to New York City, mere blocks from the site of the the most horrific attack we have ever seen on American soil.

Holder is confident that each will receive the death penalty.  I’m not a lawyer and I’ve never even been in a courtroom, but it’s my understanding that the decision of a person’s guilt and their sentance is set by the jury and judge presiding over that trial.

These people are terrorists.  They committed an act of war on our soil and, therefore, do not have the right to a civil trial.  There is no punishment harsh enough.

It’s a mockery of the memories of the innocent Americans and the heroes of the NYPD and FDNY that died that day and a slap in the face to the men and women in the military who protect this country and have given their lives so we can walk down the street without fear of another terrorist attack.
