Sen. Kent Conrad: Hey KSM reactionaries…Beat it!

No, seriously.

So now the Speaker of the House and a Democratic Senator from North Dakota have in the span of a week, basically called those who are wary of the propaganda-ready show trial of KSM down the street from Ground Zero, un-American reactionaries who should pack up and leave because they, not us, love America.

Wow. Take that 9/11 families. Incidentally, the rally to protest HoBama’s decision will be on “December 5 at a park adjacent to the Manhattan federal courthouse where Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others will be tried just blocks from Ground Zero.” You can sign their petition herePam has the story.

Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) told CNSNews.com that civilian courts are well-suited to prosecute al Qaeda terrorists and that “if people don’t believe in our system, maybe they ought to go somewhere else.”

Conrad also dismissed a question about the rights of terrorists captured on foreign battlefields and the rules of evidence in terms of a civilian court trial as not serious.

Well of course he did. Honestly people, you and your crazy concerns about the “constitution” and “laws”…ease up off my back about it:

On Capitol Hill on Nov. 19, CNSNews.com asked Conrad: “We’re going to have a civilian trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. If our troops–the evidence against him is going to be found in Afghanistan, there on the battlefield–if our troops need to enter a house and they think that there’s evidence there, should they have to establish probable cause and get a search warrant from a judge first?”

Conrad said: “You’re not being serious about these questions, are you?

Pffft. Evidence.

Maybe we oughta go somewhere else.
