Fox "News" At Its Worst

Here's what's was on Sean Hannity's website last November, regarding a Gitmo-based terrorist, tried in civilian court:
Terrorism Going Unpunished
There was some disappointing news today that the first Guantanamo detainee, Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, was acquitted of more than 280 criminal charges for his role in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in East Africa. “Eric Holder needs to be held responsible,” an angry Hannity shared, “The terrorists were one breath away from walking away free.” The Washington Post ran the full article detailing the various counts and how Ghailani was able to shake Federal prosecutors. “Eric Holder needs to resign,” Hannity called for, “He said failure wasn’t an option but it certainly was here!” There’s a place for justice in the United States Court System but it’s obvious that President Obama’s move to disband the military tribunals that were to hear these cases was a bad idea.

Not even worth mentioning: the one count on which he was convicted. And the result of that conviction, just announced: life in prison with no chance for parole.

Shall we start counting the days until Sean mentions it?
