Justice for New York City

Senator Dianne Feinstein argues in a letter to President Obama that the trial of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed should be moved out of New York City "to a less prominent, less costly, and equally secure location.”   Feinstein writes:

Certainly, New Yorkers should not have to bear the anticipated costs of such a trial.   Having endured so much, New Yorkers should neither have to pay dearly for justice, nor be denied it.  A country that will spent hundreds of billions of dollars fighting terrorism with guns can surely afford to pay the relatively small cost of fighting terrorism with Justice.
