    People of the United States..
    The Obama Justice Department under estimated the intelligence of the people in NYC. If you are found guilty of conspiring to essentialy murder people,then it would make sense that if people die because you worked with others towards that end you would be involvedt in their death.Apparentlly not by NYC standards.If the Obama Administration does not get the message from this then they are willing to let this country go down to defeat.

    As if the people of NYC are like-minded individuals.
