Panelists on Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered” blasted the Biden administration Monday over reports of potential plea bargains for high-ranking al-Qaida leaders.

“It’s not justice. None of this has been, frankly. Almost ten years after the arraignment, 21 years after this unspeakable tragedy, and we have yet to have a trial date set?” co-host Emily Compagno asked. “It’s been a perfect storm of legal mumbo-jumbo … the pretrial proceedings have been really huge in this case, with a lot of detailing and centering around the alleged use of torture to extract evidence from these prisoners and their treatment, as well as massive Covid restrictions at Guantanamo Bay, so it set things back, including the judge at the time abruptly retiring and leaving service … One thing after another.” (RELATED: ‘It Is Disturbing’: Gen.

The federal government reportedly entered “good faith” negotiations with five senior leaders of the terrorist group, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attack in which hijacked airliners were flown into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, on a possible plea bargain that could take the death penalty off the table, according to CBS News. The talks, which began in March according to the New York Times, come after a years-long legal battle marked by delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic but have been criticized by relatives of those killed on 9/11.

“This is not a partisan issue, it’s an American issue, and that horrific day — I walked the streets of New York that week right after 9/11. Those are memories that will forever be in my mind,” Liliana Gil Valetta said. “I did not lose anybody. My relatives made it. However, this is screaming to the world about the potential weakness of the greatest nation in the world. So what message does this send?”

“Of course it is tragic for the families, it is painful. There is nothing that is going to bring their relatives back,” Valetta continued. “But at a moment where we have had some missteps in the global stage — right? Afghanistan, check. Here we go. Potentially letting these guys go, or to have a bargaining deal so they don’t face the death penalty for killing 3,000 Americans, that puts everything in question.”
