ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. publicly proclaimed that Osama bin Laden will never face a U.S. trial, intimating that he will be killed before he is captured. It is irresponsible for our nation’s top law enforcement official to make such a comment, as he is supposed to uphold the law, not condone cold-blooded butchery.

Although bin Laden may not be tried in the United States, he could be tried in a military trial outside of the U.S. Even Japanese and German leaders, who committed far more grave atrocities than bin Laden during World War II, were afforded a trial. Let’s not lower ourselves to the level of terrorists, tyrants and thugs.
