Statement Regarding the Conviction of Ahmed Ghailani

November 18th, 2010

September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows stands behind the decision of the jurors in the case against accused terror suspect Ahmed Ghailani: We believe that justice in this case has been served. We are proud that reliance on the American Constitution and the rule of law gained a conviction that will result in a sentence of 20 years to life imprisonment. We believe this is the only path to justice for those accused of the most egregious crimes, crimes that seek to undermine the American way of life.

Politicians who use this verdict to pad their own resumes by undermining both the efforts of individual jurors involved in this case as well as our system of justice as a whole should be wary of their own assaults on the criminal justice system.

On 9/11/2001 we, as family members of those lost, paid the ultimate price. On November 18th, 2010 we see our nation’s strength renewed.
