The Somali pirate Abduhl Wali-i-Musi has been taken to New York City for prosecution. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090421/ap_on_re_us/piracy_suspect Big misteak. NYC is very liberal and the commie lawyers are on the case already. Ron Kuby, the pony-tailed commie lawyer is already on the case. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Kuby And he is already laying the groundwork for Abduhl Wali-i-Musi and his parents to get greencards.
"Ron Kuby, a New York-based civil rights lawyer, said he has been in discussions about forming a legal team to represent the Somalian.
'I think in this particular case, there's a grave question as to whether America was in violation of principles of truce in warfare on the high seas," said Kuby. "This man seemed to come onto the Bainbridge under a flag of truce to negotiate. He was then captured. There is a question whether he is lawfully in American custody and serious questions as to whether he can be prosecuted because of his age.'"
Interestingly enough, Kuby thinks we are at war and therefore cannot arrest pirates. So, Ron, can he be held until the end of the War on Pirates? I think he will not object, as the penalty for piracy is life in prison. Better chance of being released if he is in Gitmo than serving a life sentence at the Supermax in Florence, CO. But Kuby says that this one could not even be arrested since he was under a flag of truce and was negociating. Well, he is sort of correct, as flag of truce does give immunity to those seeking parlay, but that applies only to military situations and Abduhl was arrested on probable cause. A good question for the Magistrate today.
But more importantly it exposes the mindset of the radical left. We can't take terrorist prisoners and we can't arrest them. What do we do? Obviously they want us to do nothing.
