Thankful for Small Favors
The Justice Department has caved and elected not to hold jihadist trials in New York City after all, citing security concerns. Where this leaves the effort to turn the war against the jihadists into a legal proceeding is unclear. Most likely, they'll just choose another, less politically sensitive location. But, at least it signals that the Federal ship can be deflected, at least temporarily, if the right amount and kind of pressure is brought to bear.
