A bit of a head scratcher, right??
These days the Obama administration is under fire by Republicans for plucking the master mind of the 9/11 attacks out of the Gitmo torture chambers and into New York City to finally (after nearly a decade) stand trial for the atrocity.
As a resident of New York City for the past 10 years, Minor Ripper has a message to Peoria and the rest of the country: Thanks for you concern, but we can handle ourselves. You might be afraid, but we are not. Below is what NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg has to say on the matter:
“I support the Obama Administration’s decision to prosecute 9/11 terrorists here in New York. It is fitting that 9/11 suspects face justice near the World Trade Center site where so many New Yorkers were murdered. We have hosted terrorism trials before, including the trial of Omar Abdel-Rahman, the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. When I spoke to Attorney General Holder earlier today, I told him New York City stands ready to assist the federal court in the administration of justice in any way necessary. I have great confidence that the NYPD, with federal authorities, will handle security expertly. The NYPD is the best police department in the world and it has experience dealing with high-profile terrorism suspects and any logistical issues that may come up during the trials.”
Case closed. You see, we are pretty thick skinned here in the Big Apple and can handle ourselves.
Now go attack Obama for something else.
