New York Governor Patterson is angry with the Obama Administration on bring the 9/11 terrorists to stand for trial.
The governor said it was a bad idea to bring Kalid Sheik Mohamed to trial in New York City.
“This is not a decision that I would have made. I think terrorism isn’t just attack, it’s anxiety and I think you feel the anxiety and frustration of New Yorkers who took the bullet for the rest of the country,” he said.
Patterson criticism goes counter Democrats and Liberals who believe terrorists stand trial in the US.
“Our country was attacked on its own soil on September 11, 2001 and New York was very much the epicenter of that attack. Over 2,700 lives were lost,” he said. “It’s very painful. We’re still having trouble getting over it. We still have been unable to rebuild that site and having those terrorists so close to the attack is gonna be an encumbrance on all New Yorkers.”
Patterson says he will do everything his power to protect the public.
Patterson isn’t alone. Republicans including former Mayor and Federal Prosecutor Rudy Giuliani said The 9/11 terrorists must be tried in a military tribunal because attack on the World Trade Center was act of war.
