Blackwater Guards: All Charges Dismissed. Is This A Preview Of KSM Trial In NYC?

Let’s see. 

  • Incompetent government lawyers, check. 
  • Rules of evidence results in all the evidence thrown out, check.
  • Court dismisses charges, check.
  • It’s got all the hallmarks of a preview of the disaster that the KSM trial will be.

Let’s say that the government manages to find one or two good lawyers.  I know, I know.  But, let’s just assume.  All KSM has to do is convince a judge, who will probably be liberal, that he was tortured at GITMO.  He didn’t get enough TV time or he was woken up too early or something stupid like that.  At that point, the evidence goes out the door.

Now keep in mind that people are worried that he will use the trial as a platform to preach his Islamic hatred.  I expect that and if the judge has a pair, he will stop that in it’s tracks.  What I worry about is what happens when the charges are dismissed.

Let’s continue this exploration of disaster and assume that the evidence is thrown out because some liberal judge thinks that anything having to do with GITMO is torture.  What happens then?  How about these scenarios:

  1. The judge throws out the evidence and dismisses the charges.  He SHOULD go free at which point, he will have all the press he could ever want to talk about how evil the US is.  Hell, he will probably (successfully) sue the US for torture and false imprisonment.  Obama is shown to be a absolute fool.
  2. The judge throws out the evidence and dismisses the charges.  He should go free, but Obama sends him back to GITMO or wherever instead.  Obama will be attacked by lawyers and international condemnation for failing to follow the law.  Obama is shown to be a absolute fool.
  3. The judge throws out the evidence, but enough remains to continue the trial.  AQ will use the evidence tossed to tell everyone we torture and all the other GITMO people will use it to try to get the charges dropped.  Obama is shown to be a absolute fool.
    The only way Obama can come out of this shining, is if KSM is found guilty of all charges, muzzled by the judge for the entire case, and sentenced to death.  I have to say that this is not very likely.
    Its going to be a disaster for the US and for Obama, and this is just a little preview of what’s to come.

U.S. District Judge Ricardo Urbina dismissed all charges against Blackwater guards accused of randomly shooting up civilians in an incident that took place in Baghdad in 2007.

Urbina said the prosecutors ignored the advice of senior Justice Department officials and built their case on sworn statements that had been given under a promise of immunity. Urbina said that violated the guards’ constitutional rights. He dismissed the government’s explanations as "contradictory, unbelievable and lacking in credibility."

Basically, the Government blew its case because of arrogance and incompetence. But don’t worry, they’ll handle KSM and the other GITMO terrorists just fine. You betcha.

Many on the left will probably be outraged by this. They shouldn’t be, even if they think the guards are guilty. After all, we’ve been lectured by them for years that dismissing charges against people who are obviously guilty preserves the integrity of the system. Case in point, Bill "Guilty as sin, free as a bird" Ayers.
