Suspension of Cole trial hurts America–Arthur Herman –

Americans are learning there’s one minority group President Obama is never afraid to offend: families of victims of Islamist terror.

First, Attorney General Eric Holder wanted to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, mastermind of the 9/11 attack, in lower Manhattan — which nearly everyone, even Mayor Bloomberg (eventually), realized would be a standing insult to the memory of KSM’s victims.

Then came Obama’s “I was for it before I was against it” stance on the Ground Zero mosque — another slap at 9/11 victims’ families.

Now, last Friday, we learned that “no charges are either pending or contemplated” against one of the deadliest and most dangerous al Qaeda operatives, Abd al Rahim al Nashiri, mastermind of the October 12, 2000, bombing of USS Cole that killed 17 sailors and officers and wounded dozens more.
