He lost his Son, his Child, in the Cole Attack… here’s what he says today

Today the Obama administration canceled the trial of this terrorist again. Imagine yourself in this Dad’s shoes…his son was a Sailor who believed in this Country…an idealistic kid.

What a travesty.

Here’s this grieving Father’s blog.

Obama Cancels The Cole Bomber Trial Again!
Obama has stopped the trial of the Cole bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri again. Why are we not surprised? Because this is now his third time at stopping justice for the victims of the Al-Qaeda attack on the USS Cole. The attack took place on 10-12-00 in the Port of Yemen. Eleven months before 9/11. That attack was our nations wake up call. Which unfortunately Clinton, and Bush both hit the snooze button.

But there was noway that our nations leaders could ignore the next attack which was 9/11. But they have for the most part ignored the victims of the Cole attack, and their families since that horrible day nearly 10 years ago.

Clinton did nothing at the time except for his usual smack talk. Bush did nothing either until after 9/11. But in all fairness to Bush he at least went after the terrorists with Predator attacks. And he did allow one of the terrorists to be tried at Gitmo. For which my wife and I are very grateful for. We were fortunate enough to attend that trial, and testify against the terrorist who helped to produce a propaganda video using pictures of the Cole attack.

And then Obama comes on the scene with his liberal beliefs in how terrorists should be treated, while he forgot the real victims and their families. He wanted to make sure that the terrorists had a fair trial, and a speedy one too. That the Military Tribunals were not fair, or whatever! So he canceled the trail of Al-Nashiri one month after he was in office. I was with my daughter on the way back from getting her passport to attend the trial just a few days later when his Aide called me to inform us that justice was to be delayed again!

Then more time passes while we wait and wait for the next date of a possible trial for one of the terrorists. And then his administration announces that they will use the New and Improved Military Tribunals after all. I guess Obama did not think that the Tribunals were “terrorist friendly”. That the terrorists would now stand a much better chance at Obama’s idea of justice in the (Reformed) Tribunals. And then the rumours that Obama was doubting his latest decision again. And now the news that Obama is concerned about the political fallout from a military trial of Al-Nashir. And has therefore canceled the trial again!

We were concerned that this would happen as Obama and his policies sank further and further in the polls with the American people. The Cole attack has been political since it happened. Clinton refused to take action for fear that those actions could hurt Gores chance at wining the presidency. Bush swept the attack under the carpet when he was elected, and there it laid until after 9/11. And then Bush needed the cooperation of the corrupt president of Yemen in the new war on terror. So all the terrorists who had been caught were eventually released, escaped, and or pardoned by Saleh of Yemen. While our leaders here at home looked the other way.

And just this past July Obama expressed his gratitude to the Dictator of Yemen in his so called war on Al-Qaeda. ” They(Yemen) are cooperating.” Obama did not mention the fact that Saleh still refuses to send our sons killers back here to America to stand trial. (I doubt that they even would if they were sent back) but the gesture would be nice and appropriate. But most Americans are not aware of whats been going on in Yemen. So after some recent failed attacks here in America that were connected to terrorists from Yemen, the administration has gotten all cozy with President Saleh of Yemen, again. Whats so ironic is that this New terrorist cell was made up of ex Gitmo terrorists who were released back to the Saudis for Jihad Rehab. After their rehab they went back to Yemen and starting murdering innocent people again.

At times it is extremely easy to become depressed and to just give up the battle to obtain justice for our murdered son and his mates in such a political environment. But then my wife and I get angry at how Saleh of Yemen has been allowed to get away with protecting the murderers of our son just because three American presidents think his corrupt regime is more important to them than the brutal murder of 17 American sailors, and obtaining justice for those sailors. At how he can use American tax dollars for what ever he wants too while letting our sons killers live free.”

And here comes election time again here at home. And there goes any hope for a trial for the Cole bombers again. If its not politics with Yemen, its politics here at home, or both. But to cancel, postpone, etc… is plain wrong. Its wrong to the murdered sailors, and their families. And for our nation as well. On 10/12/00 one of our nations naval ship’s was attacked without no warning. American sailors were killed, and many others wounded. And nothing was done about it. And now 10 years later, still nothing is being done about it.

I have not posted in quite awhile. Nor have I replied back to many messages. I apologize for that. I have been very sick. But am feeling much better. I intend to respond back to everyone who has written me this past year. I have problems with my hands so just bear with me. We just got our computer hooked up right this morning.
Thanks for all the kind words, and invites on face book.
