Holder faces decision on whether to seek death penalty in Boston Marathon bombing case
StarTribune.com ^ | 1/29/14 | Pete Yost AP

As attorney general, Eric Holder has approved pursuing the death penalty in at least 34 criminal cases, upholding a long-ago pledge to Congress that he would vigorously enforce federal law even though he's not a proponent of capital punishment.

With a court-ordered deadline of Friday, Holder will make the most high-profile death penalty decision of his career in law enforcement: whether to seek capital punishment in the case of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the defendant in the Boston Marathon bombings last April that killed three people and injured 260.

How about an investigation of

1) Why THEY did not need passports.

2) Why DHS and DO”J” ignored warnings from Russia.

and

3) Why the Saudi (Osama’s son) was with them
AND then was protected and escorted OUT by
the First Lady.

They were muslim terrorists, yes?

So, the political winds...will follow his boss.

Or at least I would not be surprised.

They only maimed and killed Americans, ya know.

Nonetheless, they might get rid of him, just to keep him quiet that the Russians had warned the USA about them.

Why does the question even exist?

He's a Muzzie....Ain't gonna happen.

Hell...if we gave Osama a Muslim burial, why would we even think of another.

Holder will set this up so no death penalty and the kit will get off in a few years.

I bet that he does not seek the death penalty.

After all, can’t upset the boss’s buddies!

My bet is that he has to think about this for a few more years.
