Dear America,

Ahmed Ghailani. How many of you know his name? He was one of the terrorists responsible for the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings. He was one of the terrorists responsible for the death of 224 people (12 of which were Americans) and the injury of over 4500 more. And now, he is one of the terrorists getting off easy. Attorney General Eric Holder decided that he would be tried in a civilian court, in a civilian court where a judge would disallow the key witness linking Ghailani to the purchase of the explosives used in the 1998 bombing. Because of this the jury found him guilty of only 1 of the 285 charges against him. So, one of the terrorists responsible for killing 224 people and injuring over 4500 more is only getting a minimum of 20 years in prison. Unbelievable.

When will our government get over political correctness and get behind American correctness. What I mean by that is doing what is right for America and the American people. Ghailani (in my opinion) should be facing the death penalty right now, but he’s not because we are so afraid of what the world thinks of us. Our government has made us so soft that other countries and even terrorists are laughing at us. Ghailani was seen smiling while his verdict was read, and in my humble opinion he was smiling because he knew what he had essentially just gotten away with, mass murder. To me this means that terrorists are now going to be bolder with their attacks, knowing that if they are caught they will go before a civilian courtroom and likely get off easier than any red blooded American knows they should. This is just unacceptable.

Americans, if you are not happy about this then I urge you, I implore you to voice your displeasure with how our government has handled this situation. We cannot let them think that it is ok to offer constitutional rights to terrorists (these rights were afforded to Ghailani in his trial). Post your displeasure on your Facebook, your Twitter or where ever else you choose to share your opinions. Something has to be done and we have to let King Obama know how we feel.

Sincerely

Kehgan J. McCalister
