9/11 Family Leader Rails Against President Obama Over Gitmo Closing, Handling of Terror Prosecutions

May 8, 2009
The Justice Department's recent plea agreement with Ali Saleh al-Marri should be of grave concern to those who believe the Obama administration will vigorously prosecute terrorists in the federal court system.

He faces up to a 15-year sentence, but will be allowed to argue that the sentence should be satisfied by the seven years he has been in custody.

The State of American Law Enforcement - Stopping the Next 9/11

September 1, 2008

Experts say you deserve praise for being willing to withstand ridicule and even let bad guys win in court to prevent attacks.

Kimball, managing director of terrorism expert Steven Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism.

Have We Forgotten the Lessons of 9/11?

October 1, 2007

Baaah! Baaah! That's the sound of me once again becoming a sheep. I thought I had shed my wool back around 7:30 a.m. PST on Sept. 11, 2001, when I watched a second airliner slam into the World Trade Center.

Eyes Wide Shut

Gate Keepers: America's Airport Police

December 1, 2005
