'This Is Not a Decision I Would Have Made'

Add New York Governor David Paterson to the list of un-Americans to question the idiotic decision by Barack Obama to put the 9/11 mastermind on trial in New York City. And yes, it is Obama's decision, no matter what his stooge Eric Holder may say.

If you're Paterson, the lamest of lame ducks, it's not as you have anything to lose speaking out here and it probably would help his anemic poll numbers. Speaking of which, I notice the state-controlled media hasn't been blaring any polls on how unpopular this lunacy is.

Hmm, I wonder why?
Gov. Paterson on Monday joined the chorus of critics questioning the government's plan to try Kalid Shaikh Mohammed and four other accused 9/11 terrorists in New York.

"This is not a decision that I would have made," the governor said when asked about the upcoming federal trial of KSM and his four underlings.

"Our country was attacked on its own soil on Sept. 11, 2001, and New York was very much the epicenter of that attack," Paterson said after an appearance at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new CUNY campus in East Harlem.

"Over 2,700 lives were lost," he went on. "It's very painful; we're still having trouble getting over it. We still haven't been able to rebuild that site, and having those terrorists tried so close to the attack is going to be an encumbrance on all of New Yorkers."
Obama may well manage the impossible over the next year. He could well turn a reliably dark blue state very red considering the governorship and both Senate seats are on the ballot next year. Is it any wonder they're so vociferously attacking Rudy Giuliani.

Thanks to Ed Morrissey for the link.
