This epicÂ disgrace just gets more disgraceful by the day…
(NY Post)-Â Big Apple taxpayers could be on the hook for as much as $1 billion in secu rity costs if the trials of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four other terrorists drag on for as long as experts think they will.
That’s a staggering sum of money, and New Yorkers shouldn’t be required to cover it on their own.
The best solution, of course, would be to deep-six the trials altogether. Terrorists belong at Gitmo — not in court.
Failing that, President Obama & Co. by rights need to come up with the cash to finance their own folly.Â All of it.
Fat chance there, too.
So the top guns of New York’s congressional delegation need to step up to guarantee that the federal government does right by the city.
Yep, Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, Reps. Jerry Nadler and Charles Rangel, that meansÂ you.
Given the way the fearsome foursome rolled over for the billion-dollar hit ObamaCare stands to put on New York, we’re not optimistic about the KSM expense.
