Lamborn decries planned N.Y.-based terror trials

U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn added his voice to those criticizing the White House decision to try suspected 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other suspected terrorists in a New York City civilian court. In a strongly worded statement issued yesterday, the Colorado 5th District Republican argued that New York could become a number one target for attacks during the trial, that the terrorists were enemy combatants who would be granted additional rights unnecessarily once brought onto U.S. soil and that the men could radicalize prison populations wherever they might eventually be held. In conversation with the Colorado Independent, however, the Department of Justice played down the criticism as overheated and lacking perspective.
