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 amount to 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.
I was going to do a rant, but The Lid kindly saved me going through the trouble,
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????
None that Leahy can think of, that is.
