Watch Cheney and Co. Respond to the Ghailani Sentence

In recent months we heard a lot of pundits wax hysterical about the chaos and mayhem the federal court trial of a former Guantanamo detainee would bring to New York.

The folks at Keep America Safe -- Liz Cheney, Bill Kristol, and Debra Burlingame -- called the trial "dangerous," "reckless," and "embarrassing".

But in New York the trial proceeded with no disruptions. No street closures. No increased police presence. And, this week, a federal judge sentenced Ahmed Ghailani to life in jail with no chance of parole.

What's the sound we're hearing from the pro-Guantanamo faction? That's right. Crickets.

A fair trial led to a stiff sentence, leaving the fear-mongers dumb. The folks in the Obama Administration should keep that in mind when they decide where to try KSM.
