Eric Holder: Congress Should Mind Their Own Damned Business On Detainees

Hey, Holder is just following the lead of His Imperial Majesty, Barack Obama

Attorney General Eric Holder today criticized U.S. lawmakers for preventing the administration from being able to move the suspects from Guantanamo to the U.S. for a civilian trial. Holder said he stood by the administration’s original decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four alleged co- conspirators in federal court in Manhattan.

“Members of Congress have intervened and imposed restrictions blocking the administration from bringing any Guantanamo detainees to trial in the United States, regardless of the venue,” Holder said at a news conference in Washington. “Those unwise and unwarranted restrictions undermine our counterterrorism efforts and could harm our national security.”


“Do I know better than them? Yes. I respect their ability to disagree but they should respect that this is an executive branch function, a unique executive branch function,” Holder said in a press conference.

Perhaps Holder should be called up to Capital Hill for a grilling by the GOP controlled House over how our governmental system works.

    Eric Holder needs to go back to school, and or at least learn the constitution.
    And, he certainly ought to lose his job as soon as possible.
    He is living proof that progressives do not care one iota for our country and it’s wonderful constitution. They want an evil empire plain and simple.
