9/11 Never Forget Coalition Press Conference, 11-24-2009.
The 9/11 Never Forget Coalition, a diverse group of 9/11 victims, family members, first responders, active and reserve members of the military, veterans, and concerned Americans, is holding a November 24th press conference to discuss the details of their December 5th rally protesting the plan to bring the 9/11 terrorist conspirators to trial in New York City.
The Coalition formed to fight the decision of President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to try the 9/11 co-conspirators in New York Citys federal court, effectively giving war criminals the same rights as American citizens while endangering the safety of all New Yorkers. Two weeks ago, we sent a letter signed by 300 family members of 9/11 victims to the president, attorney general and Defense Secretary Robert Gates asking them to reverse course. The letter has now been signed by over 120,000 Americans and is posted at http://www.keepamericasafe.com.
At the November 24th press conference, leading organizers of the Coalition will give details on a large rally which will be held on December 5th in New York City to protest the plan to bring terrorist detainees to trial in civilian courts. Debra Burlingame, founder of 911 Families for a Safe and Strong America, said We chose to hold it on Thanksgiving Week in the hope that our fellow Americans will join us in sending our prayers and messages of thanks to our troops and first responders, who will bear the brunt of these dangerous decisions made in Washington. Our rally on Saturday, December 5 will tell Attorney General Eric Holder, President Barack Obama and their supporters in Congress: We will fight you all the way!
Debra Burlingame of Keep America Safe Discusses NYC Rally Against Terror Trials
Stuart Varney filling in for Neil Cavuto on Your World is interviewing Debra Burlingame of Keep America Safe about the consequences of bringing the 9/11 terrorists to NYC for a criminal trial. Debra is very articulate and concise and lays out the 3 ring circus of how this case will “devolve into putting the United States Government on trial”, and how if KSM decides to represent himself, he will have access to all sorts of national security secrets as part of his defense. Thought that was bad? As usual, it can and will get worse:
…moreover, it means that if they don’t want to give that information, they have to dismiss all the charges that rely on it.
How’s that grab you America? Not much? Then join the beginning of the national campaign against these trials with a rally on Saturday, 12.5.09 in NYC. I will bring further details as they become available.
Tim Brown of TheBravest is giving a press conference tomorrow, 11.24.09:
We are holding a press conference on Tuesday, November 24, at noon in Battery Park, Clinton Castle for the 9/11 families and first responders/survivors. We chose to hold it on Thanksgiving Week in the hope that our fellow Americans will join us in sending our prayers and messages of thanks to our troops and first responders, who bear the brunt of the decisions made in Washington. At that time we will announce the details for a large rally in New York City on Saturday, December 5, at noon at a location to be announced at the press conference.
Going forward, we think it is important that the rally be tightly focused on the issues of keeping 9/11 war crimes trials out of civilian courts, keeping foreign terrorists off U.S. soil, and reversing the policy of returning to pre-9/11 days when the U.S. Government responded to deadly terrorist attacks with arrest warrants.
Please stay tuned as we release more information in the next few days.

Remember, these trials will be the biggest recruiting tool for Al Qaeda, as the jihadists will be able to relive every moment of that fateful day on the very site of their greatest victory. (I am paraphrasing Debra)
