Michele Bachmann criticizes Obama over 9/11 NYC trials

Speaking on the House floor Wednesday, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann criticized the decision by President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. to hold a trial in New York City for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in connection with the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Bachmann argues that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the attacks, should not be given a trial in America with the same benefits as an American citizen. “All the message we will be sending to future terrorists will be, ‘You, too, can have a show trial in the city of your choice if you come to America,” Bachmann said.
