Posted on 03/17/2010 5:08:27 PM PDT by Nachum
Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the top commander of American and NATO troops in Afghanistan, contradicted the attorney general on Wednesday when he said that actually, the military still wants to capture Osama bin Laden alive.
I think that is something that is understood by everyone, he said.
But perhaps not by Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who on Tuesday told a House subcommittee that the chances of capturing Mr. bin Laden alive were infinitesimal and that he would either be killed by the United States or killed by his own people.
The reality is that we will be reading Miranda rights to the corpse of Osama bin Laden, Mr. Holder said, responding to hypothetical questions from Republicans about whether the Obama administration would try Mr. bin Laden in a civilian or military court.

The list, ping
Holder insulted all of the armed forces of the US with that statement. As if they couldn’t get Bin Laden alive, like they got Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. We swoop in undetected all the time. Holder used it as a way to divert from the actual question, which asked if he would seek to try bin Laden in a US court with constitutional rights.
“The reason we’re not talking about getting Bin Laden now is because everybody knows he’s already dead.
He’s been dead for years.”

Holder is simply an azz! How did he get to be AG? Oh, wait ...
I thought Justice was in charge of the Military these days.
Mister Holder also tacitly (if not overtly) suggested that we would cap the creep. (Recall that some Marines were mercilessly vilified by the Dems for the mere suggestion of fragging some bad guys that allegedly didn't meet the ROE (if I'm recalling correctly)).
What would Holder do if bin Laden walked into the nearest US Embassy?
If he was alive, CNN, through Al Jezeera, would have interviewed him by now.
