There are 19 comments on the www.midhudsonnews.com story from Feb 2, 2010, titled Newburgh NY mayor offers city for 9/11 terrorist trial. In it, www.midhudsonnews.com reports that:

NEWBURGH Mayor Nicholas Valentine Friday invited the federal Justice Department to hold the 9/11 terrorist trials in downtown Newburgh.

Public officials are dead set against the plan to hold them in New York City and a local backlash with talk of possibly relocating them to Orange or Westchester counties prompted Valentine to invite them to his city.

Why don't they just hold them at GITMO? Would save MILLIONS in taxpayer dollars for security and would be less risky.

The mayor will stop at nothing to get his face on TV. Although this latest stunt is far more egregious, it isn't the first time he's tried to pimp-out his city and shoot off his mouth for his own publicity.

What a complete and total fool.
The Mayor is putting every resident of his city at risk and he is also playing a part in what will be an international embarassment for our great nation.
The whole trial will be a circus that will put our nation on trail and our institutions on trial.

Anyone promoting this trial is guilty of Treason.
The terrorist that masterminded the twin tower attacks has already admitted his guilt and has requested the death sentence. Holding a trial on American soil is nothing but an attempt to wound our nation in the court of international public opinion.

Sickening. Obama needs to go. Impeach the Treasonous B@stard and send him to prison.

Trials held on US soil are appropriate here. Gitmo's reason for being is that it's not on US soil, hence any crimes are committed outside the US.

You guys wanted the international airport, and the new courthouse, the mayor won, your guy lost. Buck up.

Maybe they should rebuild the old incline railway and hold the trial across the river on top of Mount Beacon?

For the same reason that your next traffic ticket will not be tried at GITMO.

If you don't trust American justice, why do you stay in my country?

Sure, bring the murderous and brutal Islamic terrorist suicide bombers to Newburgh Mayor Nicholas Valentine's house and make them his house guests for the next four years in his kid's bedrooms.
The liberal Islamic terrorist sympathizer is happy to bring the murderous Islamic terrorists to his city to appease the African Muslim born loser in chief Obama who loves Islamic terrorists and who vowed to fight for their constitutional rights to be released on technicalities and no Mirandizing.
Obama will give the liberal Mayor 200 million dollars of the American taxpayers for the biggest Islamic terrorist show in town.

So, did the USA bring Japanese soldiers to Hawaii to try them for damaging Pearl Harbor??? The idea of bringing terrorist to the city where they damaged property makes no sense at all.

Any "real" American, would look out for the interests and rights of fellow citizens, not the terrorists that blow them up.

Too bad that none of their family members were killed in 9/11, I bet they wouldn't be speaking out their a$$ as they do.

And that mayor... well, election time will tell,(if the town is still there).

Dear Eleanor, I hope that you thank your parents for giving you one of the prettiest names in the English language.

It makes perfect sense. Rub their noses in it. Let the families of the 3000 New Yorkers they helped to murder see them being led to the dock.

But, as I said above, it will be difficult for the people of NYC to accomidate this trial, as they have suffered so much dislocation already. You have no idea.

So, I think the trial should be held elsewhere, but still in the Federal district of New York. I have mentioned Puerto Rico and Newburg NY as possible sites.

This is for you....

There is no talking reason with Mr.bill. the guy has no sense. He would blindly follow his islamic muslim terrorist simpathizer obama to hell. They people like bill who think terrorist have the same rights that are afforded to us are mentally deranged. I try to understand they are just sick human beings, but its not easy as we all well know! Especially when they're dranging the country down with them.

That's why I said the trials should be held in Gitmo (but that wasn't to your liking). You wanted the crime to be tried where the incident occurred (like, you said, a speeding ticket). That truly would be insensitive to the victim's families to have the trial in NYC.

The reality is that you are using my name, instead of your own, and you are posting things I completely disagree with. My solution is simple. Show the terrorists which way to Mecca, take them half way there on a ship in good faith, and then let them swim the rest and release them from custody on the ship. No trials needed, we are setting them free to swim home.

Will the fake terrorists on "trial" have fake beards too? Just pull on the "beards" and they'll come right off? "Terror," made in the USA; another Ruling Class ruse.
