Biden Regime Works to Get Leniency for 9/11 Mastermind and Other Co-Conspirators, Remove Death Penalty
The Biden regime is working to remove the death penalty for 9/11 co-conspirators, in a move that has left the victims’ families outraged.
Military prosecutors are negotiating with defense attorneys to get leniency for 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and four of his co-conspirators who plotted to fly planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon buildings over two decades ago.
They were charged in 2008 but the cases have suspiciously been stalled and remain in limbo. The plea deal on the table would make sure that their lives would be protected.
“All five defendants and the government are all engaged in good faith negotiations with the idea of bringing this trial, which has become a forever trial, to an end,” said attorney James Connell, who represents accused 9/11 terrorist Ammar al-Baluchi.
“[Al-Baluchi] is willing to plead guilty to a substantial sentence at Guantanamo in exchange for a guarantee of medical care and dropping the death penalty,” Connell added.
The 9/11 victims’ families understand that as long as these terrorists are alive, they may be traded away and freed at a whim under Democrat rule.
“I will not have closure as long as there is any possibility for some future president to commute their sentences or trade them away,” said Debra Burlingame, whose brother was killed in the 9/11 attacks.
“I do believe that forgiveness is more powerful than love,” she added. “But it’s earned. They never will have that.”
Big League Politics reported last year on how the Biden regime handed Afghanistan to the Taliban, botching the troop withdrawal so spectacularly that it seemed deliberate:
“The Taliban appear to be new owners of a massive weapons cache and seemingly endless bricks of $100 bills ostensibly left behind by the United States.
A long series of Instagram stories were recently posted on the @topest account depicting Taliban fighters coming into possession of countless military guns and stacks of cash.
