We need not cower

A man proud of and confident in America.  Not one letting the terrorists terrorize us into doubting the strength of our convictions and system.  An imperfect system, but a great one.

Obama and Holder defend plans to try Sept. 11 suspects -- latimes.com.

"We need not cower in the face of this enemy. Our institutions are strong, our infrastructure is sturdy, our resolve is firm, and our people are ready," Holder said.

Holder also said he was not worried about whether Mohammed, Al Qaeda's chief of operations before the attacks, makes public statements similar to those he made at preliminary hearings at Guantanamo.

If he does, Holder said, "I have every confidence that the nation and the world will see him for the coward that he is. I'm not scared of what Khalid Shaikh Mohammed has to say at trial, and no one else needs to be afraid either."
