Meet Your Maker

Last Christmas underware bomber Umar Abdulmutallab was caught and interrogated, and shortly afterwards President Obama’s Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was interviewed on MSNBC. In a discussion that included trying terrorists in NY City Federal Court, Gibbs said this:

“I think Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and his co-conspirators will meet their maker because of a justice system that works, an overwhelming amount of evidence to convict, and the likelihood that, upon that conviction, the death penalty will be brought for the murder of 3,000 people. I think that’s very easy to see.”

Gibbs is the man who speaks for President Obama’s Administration.

On Thursday, Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, while not a 911 co-conspirator, was cleared, in a NY City Federal Court, of 224 charges for 224 murders in the 1998 Embassy bombings. His trial was conducted by the same Justice Department and in the same Federal Court that Eric Holder has proposed to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Ghailani was found guilty of another charge that will send him to prison. I do concede that 224 is not 3,000 but does this mean that Ghailani’s Maker resides in a Federal Prison somewhere in the United States ?
