Holder: Osama bin Laden will never face US trial
yahoo ^ | 3/16/10 | DEVLIN BARRETT, Associated Press Write

Posted on 03/16/2010 1:35:51 PM PDT by Nachum

WASHINGTON – Attorney General Eric Holder says Osama bin Laden (oh-SAH'-muh bin LAH'-din) will never face trial in the United States because he will not be captured alive.

Holder sternly rejected criticism from Republican lawmakers on a House Appropriations subcommittee, who contend it is too dangerous to put terror suspects on trial in federal civilian courts.

One wonders what our Attorney-General would do if Osama were to somehow turn himself in to US Authorities? What would you do then, Mr. Holder?

That day has already passed. Speak of OBL in past tense, dude.

Agree. UBL is either dead or hiding in an Iranian castle courtesy of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Admanadinajad (whatever) or at least in country with no extradition (and socialized medicine or the best doctors money can import).

If Osama was captured - he’d hire a lawyer after miranda - and he’d turn New York into a circus. Or Washington... Obama’s gang isn’t up to the job.

Holder’s a total pinhead.

Assuming UBL’s alive - what if one of his own people turned on him and turned him in, for the reward, out of jealousy, whatever. What would we do - pull a Clinton and say we wouldn’t accept him?

Hopefully, since Mr. Holder is asserting his superior precognitive ability, he will share with us the winning numbers for tonight’s Powerball drawing. I’ve always wanted a Ferrari, and this might be my best chance.

I believe Holder, after all he would know exactly what his buddy bin Laden is thinking and doing. And probably exactly where he is...maybe in the Lincoln Bedroom today watching TV and the comedy we call Congress.

“Attorney General Eric Holder says Osama bin Laden will never face trial in the United States because he will not be captured alive.”

Holder confirms that if OBL were captured, he would be put on trial in the US.

It's interesting that an attorney would make such a definitive statement on a future event.

If he's caught, he should be civilly tried in NYC with an all black/islamic jury.

NY votes for democrats, they should pay the price.

Let’s hope that in the event OBL should ever be found by our special op’s guys he will be shot on the spot in the course of being captured.

Well that's interesting, Mr. Holder. Is that a death threat? Are you stating for the record that Obastard has instructed Department of Defense personnel to kill Mr. bin Laden in the event they capture him? You do know, don't you Mr. Holder, that that is a violation of the Geneva Conventions, even, I believe, as they apply to so-called illegal combatants?

All of which raises one nagging little question: why is that group of Navy Seals still being prosecuted for giving a captured terrorist a fat, bloody lip?

In short, who made you judge, jury, and executioner, Mr. Holder; who made you God?

Such typical liberal hypocrisy.

Holder would talk out of the other side of his mouth.... if OBL were black.

That is what Holder seems to be saying, but as an AG he really can't say that.

The problem with the Dems is neatly encapsulated by Holder's response. The fact that they haven't considered the possibility of OBL's capture means that they haven't thought seriously about what they'd do with him if they did.

This omission also allows them to treat the Gitmo Detainees as petty criminals instead of illegal combatants. If you lump OBL into the Gitmo detainees it would crystalize the public thinking as to what to do with all the detainees.

I never believed that US troops were likely to bring in OBL. I just think that OBL is not physically inside any region where the US military operates with a free-hand. Therefore, if we were to get him it would be one of his inner circle betraying him to the Pakistanis, Saudis, or Yemenis who would then turn him over to us.

So then what? Holder seems to be saying that he hasn't considered any of this. Heck, this is what we pay him to do. Consider the alternatives, no matter how unlikely.

I've always thought OBL did not survive the bunker busters that flattened parts of Afghanistan after 9-11.

I guess our intelligence has done voice analysis to confirm the lastest communication is indeed him.

Unless they thought it best for the world to believe him still alive?

I thought bin Laden was convicted of murder right after 9/11 in abstentia, so why would he need another trial?

IMO he doesn’t need a trial - he needs execution.

Holder’s statement is an implicit ok to assassinate ObL; does this mean that the previous presidential directive forbidding assassinations has been rescinded?

Is this more of our outreach to the Muslim worle? A demonstration of our justice system?

We need civil trials, it's the American way.

KSM will be convicted, if he isn't he'll stay in jail anyway.

bin Ladin, he won't make it to court.

Sounds like the words a tinpot dictators 4th in command to me.

Good evening. I hope you are feeling well.

First thing I thought of when I heard this. How can you bring a dead man to trial?

They protect terrorists more than they protect American citizens. I can imagine how bad things are going to get over the next three years.

We already paid the price, twice if you count the World Trade attack in 1993. Too bad that thousands of people from all over, not just NY, paid the ultimate price 9 years ago. And too bad so many fellow NYers learned nothing from the horror.
