Big, tough Dumbos! Afraid to bring KSM (Khalid Sheikh Mohammed) to federal court in the town so nice, they named it twice: New York, NY. Hell, if federal judge Julius Hoffman could gag Abby Hoffman and Jerry Rubin in the Chicago 8 trial in 1968, the federal judge in NYC can have KSM strapped to a waterboard. Liberty and justice (and waterboarding) for all is the name of the game. If this is (fair & balanced) hypocrisy, so be it.
