The ACLU Defends Terrorists….Again

The American Civil Liberties Union, which for years has scorned Pentagon military commissions as “kangaroo courts,” announced Friday that it will try to provide top civilian defense attorneys for alleged terrorists facing trial at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba — including the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Former Attorney General Janet Reno is among top lawyers who’ve endorsed the $8.5 million effort, which will help coordinate and defray the expenses of civilian defense attorneys working on the terrorism cases. Under the military commissions scheme, the Pentagon won’t reimburse volunteer civilian attorneys for their expenses.

Reno is the former Clinton lapdog who refused to allow an independent investigation of Bubba’s various felonies, not the least of which was accepting campaign funds from Chinese agents in exchange for classified technology. Her blatant obstruction of justice was a sickening travesty.

ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero said a major thrust of the effort will be to defend Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who military officials say has confessed to masterminding the 9-11 attacks and several other terrorist acts, including the beheading in Pakistan of Wall Street Journal correspondent Daniel Pearl.

……Mohammed was held in secret CIA custody until September 2006, and the CIA has admitted subjecting him to waterboarding while he was being questioned. Waterboarding is simulated drowning and is considered torture by many rights advocates.

And ‘torture’ of a terrorist to save American lives is bad because?……

Romero said 11 lawyers have agreed to defend Guantanamo detainees facing death penalty charges under the program, which the ACLU has dubbed “The John Adams Project” after the second president of the United States, who as an attorney was subjected to ridicule for defending British soldiers accused of killing colonists in the 1770 Boston Massacre.

Notice how they pervert the American Revolution into an analogy for defense of the human garbage who plotted and executed the deaths of 3000 people on our soil, not to mention all of the thousands of atrocities they’ve committed before and since. Somehow this justifies, in their minds, the defense of an enemy who would gladly destroy them, along with the rest of Western civilization. That’s not heroic, that’s just plain stupid.

“This is the time to demonstrate to the world that the United States need not abandon its principles,” said Reno, “even as it seeks to ensure the safety of its citizens.”

Hey Janet, wouldn’t American principles include the vigilant protection of its own people from the likes of the scum you’re defending? Or is their defense more important to you?

    Marooned,
    The only Democrat worth a shit is Joe Lieberman. I wish he’d cross the aisle. We need more like him on our side.

  2. What Janet Reno is doing with the AlQueda Civil Liberties Union is another example of how the Clinton Administration dropped the ball when it came to the threat of Islamic terrorism and left us wide open for what happened on 9/11. The way these Clintonoids have received a free pass for ignoring this imminent threat all during their term is a disgrace. It should be a warning to anyone of the consequences for pulling the lever next to someone with a “D” by their name.
