Gateway Pundit: Obama Administration Halts Prosecution of Suspected USS Cole Bomber
GOOD GRIEF! Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri is the alleged mastermind behind the USS Cole bombing and other terrorist attacks. He headed al-Qaeda operations in the Persian Gulf and the Gulf states prior to his capture in November 2002. The Obama Administration dropped charges in February 2009 on al-Nashiri pending the administration’s review of all Gitmo detentions.
The Washington Post reported:
The Obama administration has shelved the planned prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the Oct. 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a court filing.
“It’s politics at this point,” said one military official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss policy. He said he thinks the administration does not want to proceed against a high-value detainee without some prospect of civilian trials for other major figures at Guantanamo Bay.
Obama's campaign to make the Democratic brand as toxic as possible before November rolls on
Israelis should note that Obama is about to do to the peace process what he did to the economy, the deficit, the DNC brand... Dangerously incompetent.
