"Hello there, you son of a bitch"

Remember that 9/11 "mastermind," Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who most folks didn't want tried under the US Justice system because he would make a mockery of it, spout his nonsense and turn it into a show trial?  Of course, Eric Holder and the White House wanted these legal proceedings, until they realized that they were the only ones stupid enough to do it.  The public, overwhelmingly, wanted a military court.  Obama finally agreed.

Well, yesterday he showed up in Court (with the Court's permission) sporting a lively fall ensemble that included a camouflage vest.  It's all the rage in the Middle East, apparently.  He, then, proceeded to grace the audience of 9/11 family members with an anti-American rant.  We never saw it coming.
But, as if the vest weren’t enough of an insult to the memory of the 9/11 victims and their families, Pohl took the unusual step of allowing Mohammed to spew an anti-American rant.
Making two callous references to the Sept. 11 attacks, Mohammed droned on for five minutes about national security, torture and military strategy.
“The government, at the end of the argument gave you an advice,” KSM, speaking Arabic, said through a translator.
“They told you any decision you’re going to issue you’re going to have to keep in mind the national security and to remember that there were 3,000 people killed on Sept 11.”
Imagine the news coverage if this wasn't a military court, and some liberal judge was running the show.  They'd be laying out a prayer rug for the son-of-a-bitch.

He was greeted "warmly," by the way.

“Hello there, you son of a bitch,” hissed Gordon Haberman of Wisconsin, whose 25-year-old daughter, Andrea, died in the north tower of the World Trade Center.
“You pr--k. That vest is American-issue.”
