The KSM madness regenerates itself

It seems that the more indefensible an action is by this administration, the faster the loony left moves to actually defend it.  Proof that no matter how wrong and potentially disastrous putting KSM in a federal courtroom is, there are people out there insane enough (or intoxicated enough on the fumes of their "movement"), that they'll still carry O!Bummer's water.  I really expected them be sitting this argument out, as if saying, "Okaaaayyyy, you're on your own here, dipshit."

But, as Sister Toldjah reports, AG Holder has the nerve to call those of us who oppose this foolishness "cowards."  As does perpetual leg-tingler Moulitsas.  The Sister, quoting Andrew McCarthy's rebuke (National Review Online), however...

That is, Pres. Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, experienced litigators, fully realize that in civilian court, the Qaeda quintet can and will demand discovery of mountains of government intelligence. They will demand disclosures about investigative tactics; the methods and sources by which intelligence has been obtained; the witnesses from the intelligence community, the military, and law enforcement who interrogated witnesses, conducted searches, secretly intercepted enemy communications, and employed other investigative techniques. They will attempt to compel testimony from officials who formulated U.S. counterterrorism strategy, in addition to U.S. and foreign intelligence officers. As civilian “defendants,” these war criminals will put Bush-era counterterrorism tactics under the brightest public spotlight in American legal history.

This is exactly what President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder know will happen. And because it is unnecessary to have this civilian trial at all, one must conclude that this is exactly what Obama and Holder want to see happen.
This post of hers is far better and more thorough than anything I could submit on the subject.  So please swing by her place (and the link to the National Review article) and read the rest.  Obama's base is composed of those who salivate over a weakened America.  This is Obama playing to his base.
