New York's Dem Gov Attacks Plan to Try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in NYC

One point that needs to be mentioned is just the cost of the security in a city as big as NYC. Anyway, here is a discussion about Paterson's statement:

Gov. David Paterson openly criticized the White House on Monday, saying he thought it was a terrible idea to move alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other suspected terrorists to New York for trial.

"This is not a decision that I would have made. I think terrorism isn't just attack, it's anxiety and I think you feel the anxiety and frustration of New Yorkers who took the bullet for the rest of the country," he said.

Paterson's comments break with Democrats, who generally support the President's decision.

Republicans said the group should be tried in a different location under military tribunal because the attacks are considered an act of war. . . .
