Andrew Cuomo has allied himself with the rest of the fraidy cat New Yorker politicians who think that Khalid Sheik Mohammed is so scary and powerful that he can’t be tried in New York City. Giving KSM a fair trial in the city he attacked would send a message of strength. Instead, we send a message of weakness and fear. And I hope Cuomo doesn’t think this is protecting New York City, because it does just the opposite. It sends yet another message that our greatest fear is another attack on New York, so it’s a place where an attack meant to terrorize would be extremely effective.
