Obama regime cancels trial of USS Cole "coordinator"

According to the Dems and Leftists the way to deal with "terrorism" (assuming they even acknowledge there is such a thing) isn't by armed force but through the courts--i.e. by treating acts of terror like ordinary crimes.

Now the Obama administration shows it's unwilling even to do that.
The Obama administration has apparently decided not to prosecute Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the bombing of the USS Cole in Oct. 2000, according to a motion filed this week in a U.S. court.

The motion said "no charges are either pending or contemplated with respect to" Mr. al-Nashiri.

In case you've lost track amid all the murders committed by Muslim fanatics, 17 American sailors were killed in the bombing of the U.S. Navy ship as it lay at anchor in a harbor.

Now, it's true that prosecutors drop cases if they discover exculpatory evidence, or find that evidence pointing to guilt can't be legally used. Is it possible this is the reason?

Nope. Military officials said prosecutors have been ready to go to trial for months.

"It's politics at this point," said a military official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. He said he thinks the administration simply doesn't want to proceed.

I'd think the public deserves to know the reason the adminstration doesn't want to proceed. And if no one in the Obama administration would talk, I'd suggest hitting every one of 'em with contempt sentences until one finally saw the light.

Lord, please give conservatives a whopping majority in at least the House in November. And then please let a few dozen of the freshmen reps have the stones to investigate and impeach if the evidence warrants.
