Read Every Word

Todd Beamer's father, David, has written an outstanding editorial about the Obama Administration's mind-boggling decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and others in New York courts.

Todd Beamer, of course, was one of the heroes who died aboard United Airlines Flight 93 on 9/11.

Among Mr. Beamer's points: "Mr. Holder said that he and his boss had not spoken in person about this decision. This matter only involves upholding the constitutional rights of Americans, establishing a precedent with battlefield impact, and the safety and security of our citizens in a time of war. What are the criteria to make something a priority with President Barack Obama? How can it be that this matter didn't make the cut?"

Mary Katharine Ham has more reactions from 9/11 families in an article at the Weekly Standard.
