Newsspill anchor Harris Faulkner did not hold back her outrage on Monday after learning on Sunday that President Joe Biden’s administration was allegedly considering a plea agreement to the perpetrator of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
American military prosecutors are negotiating a plea agreement for the conspirators Ramzi Binalshibh, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi, Walid bin Attash, and Ammar al-Baluchi, who are now being held captive at the American facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The deal may allow the men to avoid the death penalty, according to CBS News. Their attorneys said that in exchange, they would enter guilty pleas.
Their cases have been bogged down in legal battle for years with little promise of resolution.
Nearly 3,000 people died in New York City and Washington, D.C., as a result of the 9/11 attacks. when aircraft crashed into the Pentagon and the twin towers of the World Trade Center. According to reports, some passengers managed to overpower terrorists flying a different aircraft thought to be headed for the White House, causing the plane to crash in a field in western Pennsylvania.
On Monday, Todd Piro, a guest on the network’s “Outnumbered” show, said that Harris’ choice would be a component of a broader push to end the death penalty in the United States.
This may serve as the impetus for the elimination of the death sentence. What I’m trying to say is, if a defense attorney comes up to you and says, “Hey, you didn’t give the death penalty to the person who killed 3,000 Americans, why are you going to give it to my client?”
Faulkner then voiced his view on the subject, arguing that any collaboration with the 9/11 hijackers sends a horrible message to the families of the almost 3,000 American victims.
“This issue and the border are related. Are we really a sovereign nation if we don’t know what justice looks like when Americans are killed? Lily put it so well. She continued, “Do we truly adore the people that make up this beautiful country? Our president despises at least fifty percent of them. How are we aware? He keeps telling us, after all.
What about the families of military personnel? Whose children enlisted in the military as a result of what transpired? Who volunteered to fight and sacrificed their lives for America after we were attacked? Faulkner enquired. They won’t ever be the same, I said. Those families who lost children, as well as the soldiers who suffered lifelong injuries during that conflict.
Faulkner said, “I realize I can’t speak for every military family out there, but I will speak for mine. I sincerely apologize to them all for our inability to continue acting like an independent nation. It’s the second time I’ve stated that in the last hour.
“What do we say to them when we say we will make a deal for these guys who took more than 3,000 lives of Americans in this country? On American soil? What do we say to those military families? ‘We gave up?’ ‘We got tired?’ ‘We like liberalism in our justice system better than we love you?’ I’m dying to know,” she continued.
