Chance of an Acquittal Brings Bombshell Revelation

Some might hope this topic refers to three of the Navy SEALS who, after capturing one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq (Ahmed Hashim Abed) have been accused by their prisoner of abuse.
Unfortunately, this bombshell refers to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his alleged 9/11 co-conspirators who, if acquitted, will only be deported.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano advised the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning that Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. did not consult her before deciding to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his alleged 9/11 co-conspirators in a New York federal court.
Responding to questioning from Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Napolitano replied,
In the off chance that there were to be an acquittal for these individuals, they would immediately be put into removal proceedings and be deported.” She said, “They are paroled…into the country only for the purposes of prosecution. There are no immigration benefits that accrue to that.”

Napolitano declined to speculate as to where the detainees could be deported. Stand by, for more floundering.
