Joke or justice self proclaimed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohamed.
And his four co defendants acting up during and -- out -- arraignment hearing.
But our next guest is not laughing in fact he says the proceedings were downright.
Tough to watch Al Santoro lost his firefighter son.
Christopher on 9/11 he joins us in studio this morning good morning to you -- the moon I can only imagine what it was like to watch them make a mockery.
Of the victims like your son and -- -- entire system take me through your emotions as you watched things like one defended making a paper airplane out of evidence some reading a magazine some chuckling.
This was the same antics that they pulled.
When we were down in -- would almost three years ago.
The same antics you know -- -- getting in the shouting.
Stopping to pray or pretend to pray.
Then things of this nature and it's just very frustrating.
The prosecutor is and the judge.
They just have to have nerves of steel just to put up with this he's -- -- and I think this would occur in any court doesn't matter.
These people are determined to make a mockery of -- court system and we bend over backwards to accommodate them why I don't know.
-- -- was.
Them was bound to lose and they restraint when he came in the judge I don't know why he's in the in the chair apparently did some before he got into the courtroom so they went around the world that for ten minutes.
To decide whether he believed.
With the record to cooler than that -- decorum.
To -- you don't think about it as -- restraints they finally he agreed.
But then he wouldn't use his earphones.
So again another 45 minutes it was discussed.
And it's it's not only did defendants.
They have -- they have an agenda.
It is the defense attorneys.
That play and terrorists try to make motion if the motion the judge kept saying this is not the time when time comes I'll let you make -- -- you mentioned the one pulled out -- head piece is your phone saying I was tortured so I refused to conceded here this translation I used today.
They have an agenda what is it you feel they're trying to accomplish -- are they succeeding.
I think it ended in a sense they are succeeding because little in doing what in the in the end.
-- you know doing performing these d'antoni said they you know and it seems like it's orchestrated you know each one of them sought to do some different and.
You know if -- had.
I'm not an attorney I can't say.
And yes civil rights people would we would be saying all kinds of things if if they if they judge Jim restrained heaven anyway.
But you've seen in many in many cases where a defendant is not cooperating the judge would either gave them sometimes remove them from the courtroom in the proceedings continue.
We don't do this I think we want to make sure that everybody says that.
They were given that -- there -- -- Time and our reporter Catherine -- who happen to be in the courtroom yesterday and she -- some of the antics that they pulled that you watched would not have been allowed if this case were tried in federal court -- -- at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn yesterday what if this were tried.
-- federal court here in New York City are you satisfied.
With the military tribunal or would you have actually preferred it.
No I think it's it's better in the ending Guantanamo Bay did the reaction than the the families were against the movement first of all -- -- is safe environment.
There was no safer place on -- I believe and then do they give what you can get in there you just can't walk in -- in New York City would have been a nightmare Ray Kelly would have probably lost -- -- -- but if it came here because it would have been a difficult security.
Probably ten times -- circuits probably without a doubt so I think it's its best there.
I think that I think there are antics would would have.
The been the same whether or didn't they don't care what Cortes they.
They know our system probably better than most Americans do.
They've had ten years.
Two to study and then they have computers and then one they they discuss things with each other so you know it's it's a little frustrated.
Alan mentioned you lost your son Christopher -- firefighter on 9/11 what would make you feel some sense of justice what outcome here would make you feel some sense.
Of justice over that tough block well -- the fact that there are they will -- stand trial.
And become you know be that be determined whether -- it's gonna rely for death or whatever the case may be and and avid and this has been going on too long it's over ten years.
You know quick and speedy justice there is this quick and speedy I don't I don't believe so not my idea dictionary.
I just like to see this done I'm glad it started up again.
It's taken -- President Obama a year into the day heal -- he starts his campaign again.
The same day that that the -- -- it is this is not a political ploy.
I've I've been born yesterday so.
No question about I told him last year when we met him.
That his next victory will be when these guys have brought to justice and -- he left in the -- kind of smiled to the media.
