Khalid Sheik Mohammed New York trial nixed

Looks like the Obama Administration was spooked by the Massachusetts election so much he appeared on C-SPAN today answering Republican questions, now we here that the New York trial for KSM will be nixed as well.  Those focus groups are burning the midnight oil in advance of the November election.  From the washingtonpost

The Obama administration appears to have abandoned plans to put Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and four co-conspirators on trial in Lower Manhattan, according to administration sources.

“It seems less and less likely” that the trial will take place in New York, according to a senior administration official.

The administration was facing a surge of political opposition to hosting the trial in New York. That opposition crystallized in recent days when New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, an early supporter of holding the trial in the city, said the security and financial costs were too great.
