Eric Holder: ‘I made the Decision’ on Abdulmutallab


AP...AG: I made decision to charge terror suspect

The Corner

Obama Report

Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday he made the decision to charge the Christmas Day terror suspect in the civilian system with no objection from all the other relevant departments of the government.

In a letter to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, the attorney general wrote that the FBI told its partners in the intelligence community on Christmas Day and again the next day that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab would be charged criminally...

"No agency supported the use of law of war detention for Abdulmutallab, and no agency has since advised the Department of Justice that an alternative course of action should have been, or should now be, pursued," the attorney general wrote.
However, at a Senate Judiciary hearing last month, when Sen. Susan Collins asked the head of the Dept. of Homeland Security, the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, and the National Security Director if they had been consulted about the decision to file criminal charges against Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in a civilian court, they all replied that they had not been consulted. Senator John McCain later asked them if they agree with the decision. All three replied 'no comment'.

Video of Susan Collins questioning the Intelligence heads:

Clearly, Mr. Holder's assertion that "the FBI told its partners in the intelligence community" about the decision to try Abdulmutallab in a civilian court seems to contradict what Intelligence heads told the Senate Judiciary Committee last month. If Holder did indeed inform them of the move, it was not until after he had already made the decision. Additionally, his contention that "no agency" supports "the use of law of war detention for Abdulmutallab", is highly suspect in light of what the intelligence heads told Sen. McCain at the hearing ["No comment"].

The Attorney General issued his statement in a letter - and not in a court of law - thus he can not be charged with perjury. However, I do believe that Mr. Holder should be censured and ultimately fired for his blatant prevarication and twisting of the facts. America can ill-afford to have an Attorney General, who skirts around the truth. The lives of thousands of American citizens are hanging on the balance of his bumbling, irresponsible, unilateral decisions - and his evasion of the truth. Mr. Holder must be relieved of his duties, immediately!



Wild Thing's comment.......

The mass murderer wannabe was singing like a canary, until Holder/Obama shut down any interrogation and bizarrely gave him US rights and lawyered the monster up.

So it was Holder and I bet Obama too, as both are jihadi loving, America hating. Holder's and his law firm have been defending terrorists for years.

Having the right to remain silent conferred upon a terrorist when there could be an ongoing plot to mass murder, is bizarre and indefensile.

That video of Sen. Susan Collins is interesting. So many times she takes the part of a RINO and sides with the liberals. She is certainly attacking Holder on this matter. It shows that this obama administration is losing support from many angles.

Holder blew this case. His error endangers all of us.

Eddie, LMAO oh my gosh. hahahaha

Tom, I agree, I was kind of shocked to see her in the video and what she was saying and the way she was going after Holder.
