Holder gets his a** handed to him

I'm sure he did after Lindsey was probably grabbing it.

Thanks, Graham, for voting for Holder’s confirmation.

Thanks for nothing.

Holder is a childish incompetent.

Easily the worst AG since Reno. Or perhaps Ramsey Clark.

IIRC, Senator Graham (Pansey Graham) was a JAG officer, wasn’t he? ... And the pubbies play into the democrap party’s hands once again, giving the scam plenty of airing so it can be successful as the diversion it is intended to be, directing we the people away from the commie legislation of cap and tax, obamacare, and stimulus billions to the SEIU/ACORN/activists axis of the DNC federal oligarchy bankrupting America.

I really think KSM walks given what Graham said..I hope it gets a lot of play.
If KSM walks, OBama and his administration are finished...and Dems will lose control. At least that is what should happen if we, the people, can keep the voter fraud under scrutiny come election time.

It is outrageous to think Bin Laden could walk because he wasn’t given his miranda rights.

When you start a trial with the president and the AG having said we'll get the guy, don't worry; and the rights of the defendent to have the evidence disclosed; add in the unreliability of getting 12 people to convict; the money is on the guy to walk.

If he walks, Obama is toast.

Don't know which is worse, having the guy walk or having OB as president to whittle away our national defense.

Graham is like the classic arsonist masquerading as a fire fighter, he VOTED to confirm that moron Holder as AG, but NOW Graham is all worked up about the decision to try KSM in federal court (and potentially OBL if alive and if captured), and nobody is going to tell ME that Graham didn’t know all about Holder’s lousy history and his shenanigans during the tenure of Janet Sasquatch Reno during the Clinton years.

Graham knows he’s in deep trouble with the folks back home when it comes to re-election, and you can bet the rent that THIS footage will be incorporated into any campaign ads aired by Graham to convince the voters that he is ‘hard on terrorism’ and ‘hard on the 0bama Justice Dept’.

It’s nothing but crap.

How does this help our stature in the world? Even if found 'not guilty' they will not be released.

PLEASE - anyone - help me understand the upside of this completely ridiculous decision.

Holder is the absolute most politically leftist attorney general we have ever had.

And he is very political to boot.

This makes for a very dangerous DOJ where killers and political bully boys like those in Philadelphia are set free and foreugn terrorists are treated like citizens

Graham knows he’s in deep trouble with the folks back home when it comes to re-election

The Charleston County GOP already censured him, and he narrowly avoided a censure from the Berkeley County GOP. Plus, the letters from folks in Dorchester and Beaufort Counties (reprinted here on FR) indicate the anger is growing.

If Grahamnesty tries to out-maverick his mentor McCain, he will be destroyed in 2014 by another Republican.

We can only hope that whomever destroys Lindsey is another DeMint and not another Inglis or Bauer.

I hope and pray that this gets going full steam ahead..so that the people will begin to see the debacle before 2010 election.

You can bet the Miranda issue will come up in the very beginning..

Now what happens when they get Osama. Precedent has been set. CIA can’t interrogate him. He is entitled to a lawyer and his miranda rights.

These f’in clowns get more disastrous with each endeavor..

Oh, great Holder is telling us if terrorists kill civilians they go to criminal court and have more rights, if you kill military then Military rules. If i’m doing my math correct this encourages terrorist to kill civilians- more rights

Whatever one thinks of Graham, he revealed the policy for what it is. Not thought out and dangerous. If this clip was run on all of the networks OB would be feeling a lot of heat. But it won’t happen.

My stars in heaven....a Rino leader????????????????

As to the named "Attorney General"....
Either he got his law degree granted to him by ACORN, or he is purposely trying to "escape and evade" doing the correct and legal thing.

In either case, he is in the process of committing treason, or at the very least a mistake of monumental proportions.

And lo and behold....a Rino went right down his throat, pulled his tonsils out...and handed them to him on a platter.

Way to go Senator Graham....way to go!

His lawyer can seek to dismiss on lack of speedy trial, coerced confession [classic definition], failure to Mirandize, etc.

One thing Graham missed re: Bin Laden. Once he was indicted, a “critical stage” in the criminal proceeding had been reached [under Constitutional law]. His right to counsel attached AT THAT POINT, and he CANNOT be questioned without counsel present [even if he waives his Mirandas],and cannot waive counsel’s presence without counsel present, assuming he’s being prosecuted in Federal Court pursuant to the indictment.

SC cannot trust this fairy to represent them.

A reservist JAG should know military law and its application. It seems he reasonably outlined the argument against these terrorists' trial by nonmilitary courts, but cannot (apparently) read the U.S. Constitution and discern his and others’ oath and responsibilities for enforcing the founding documents' provisions.

A politician - and one that is facilitating the communization of the U.S.A. by supporting the left and in particular in supporting amnesty for criminals.

Like has been said earlier, he knows he's in trouble in SC. He will do those things that he hopes will mollify a sufficient number of SC voters to preclude his being kicked to the curb.

The RNC (and the SCGOP for grahamnesty) need to be held accountable for the rino travesty, as well as the rinos themselves.

I tend to agree with you but... this crap will take years to get to court... and multi-millions of dollars. Delays and more delays.

By the time it happens, POtuS and his Attorney Private will be history.

There is a reason for this decision but I’m not sure what it is. It certainly doesn’t make sense when you consider that KSM was ready to plead guilty in the military court system.

Does Graham have Parkinson’s Disease? He was very jumpy in that video. Holder was totally still, so unless it was the cameramen something is amiss with ol’ Lindsay.

I heard that the Holder’s goal is to get this trial turned over to some international court, where Bush and Cheney can be tried for war crimes, as well. He knows that you can’t try KSM in a civil court in NY city.
