AG's contempt for democracy

On Monday, as Attorney General Eric Holder stood at the podium at the Justice Department headquarters in Washington to announce that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other 9/11 terrorists would be tried by military commissions at Guantanamo, he still insisted that he'd much prefer to try them in civilian courts.

The guy just doesn't get it -- and because he doesn't, he should resign forthwith.

Almost a year-and-a-half ago, when he announced at the same podium that he'd decided to try KSM and four of his co-conspirators in lower Manhattan, Holder did so with complete disregard for the security and day-to-day-activities of those who live, work and visit here.

Disdaining Congress, America & New Yorkers: Holder still thinks that trying the 9/11 terrorists as civilians is the correct choice.

He'd never discussed the security implications with New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. He'd never consulted with the New York State Police. And he clearly never checked with the federal agency charged with securing federal buildings, whose director testified that the agency didn't have sufficient resources to secure the trials for more than two weeks.
