“I think it shows you put terrorism on one side, you put our legal system on the other, and our legal system comes out ahead."

“[Trying the "911 mastermind" in a civilian court] gives an unnecessary advantage to the terrorists and why would you want to give an advantage to the terrorists, and it poses risks for New York.”
“We wouldn’t have tried the people who attacked Pearl Harbor in a civilian court in Hawaii.”
“I’m concerned that we no longer believe we’re at war with Islamic terrorists when they’re at war with us.”
Why the hell does anyone take this hack seriously?
