I was reading yet another editorial criticizing Eric Holder and the DOJ for their moronic decision to have civilian trials of KSM and other al Qaeda defendants and I was surprised and proud to learn that my cousin, Jill Regan, was there to deliver a petition against this horror:
A final observation: During the proceedings a young lady, dutifully attentive, sat with a stack of paper about 15 inches high on her lap. The papers contained names, single spaced, of some 100,000 people who signed a letter in opposition to this decision. This young woman, Jill Regan, lost her dad, Donald J. Regan, FDNY of the Bronx, who died trying to save others on 9/11. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Al.) asked that those names be entered into the record at the end of the session. It was agreed, but by that time the chairmen and most of the Democrats were already gone. I grieved for her—and for all of us—anew.
Hardcore leftists like Obama and Holder basically think that America brought 9/11 upon ourselves. They think the worst thing about this event is that we “overdid it” in our response and thereby made Europeans and other foreigners mad at us. So they rush to close GITMO, while they drag their feet on implementing their own stated Afghanistan strategy. They feel little rage at the perpetrators and consider the various foreigners with unpronounceable names killed in our attempts at vengeance indistinguishable morally and emotionally from their fellow Americans. They are at best “citizens of the world” and should not be in charge of this nation.
