Following up on Attorney General Eric Holder’s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday comes this bit of stupid from chairman Sen. Patrick Leahy:
If the U.S. captures Osama bin Laden, there's no need to interrogate him, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday.
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the chairman of that committee, said that arguments raised by Republican senators about whether bin Laden would be afforded Miranda rights if he were captured was a "red herring."
"The red herring that my friend [Sen.] Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was covering is not realistic," Leahy said during an appearance on "Washington Journal" on C-SPAN.
"For one thing, capturing Osama bin Laden -- we've had enough on him, we don't need to interrogate him," Leahy added.
Really? So, we already know all of his associates? We already know all of his plans? Has the CIA managed to plant a mind-reading transmitter in his brain?
You know how bad a decision this is simply because Leahy is forced to make this idiotic argument.
