If you were in Washington DC earlier in the week, you would have seen an extra twinkling object in the night sky over the Capitol building. That twinkle was just the Fairy of Stupidity spreading his stupid dust over the office of Senator Pat Leahy. And that fairy dust is working very well on the Senator, maybe too well.
Yesterday during the Senate questioning of Attorney General Eric Holder, Senator Lindsey Graham asked the AG whether bin Laden should be afforded due process in courts if he were captured.
“The big problem I have is you’re criminalizing the war, that if we caught bin Laden tomorrow, we have mixed theories and couldn’t turn him over to the CIA, the FBI, military intelligence for an interrogation on the battlefield, because now you’re saying he’s subject to criminal court in the United States and you’re confusing the people fighting this war,” Graham said.”
Leahy was later interviewed on C-span, he disagreed with his colleague, he said described Graham’s question as 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.
Huh? We wouldn’t need to interrogate him? There is no information about the operations of al Qaeda we would want to know? Any Plots to blow up buildings in the works? How do we find where the terrorist cells are? ANYTHING????
Clearly the Stupid Fairy gave the Senator too much stupid dust.
“We’re going to bring them back to New York and prosecute them,” he [Leahy] said. “I think we ought to stand up and applaud that.”
Well Senator before you stand and applaud please check and make sure you wore pants today, that stupid dust works for at least a week.
