Attorney General Eric Holder says Osama bin Laden would Have same Rights and U.S. Citizen Charles Manson - Video 3/16/10
Here is video of Attorney General Eric Holder saying that Osama bin Laden would have the same rights as mass-murderer Charles Manson.
Holder made the comments while being grilled by Texas Rep. John Culberson on Capitol Hill. Culberson responded to Holder with, "That's incredible." He told Holder that "you are clothing Osama bin Laden with the protections of the U.S. Constitution." Culberson said this shows the total "disconnect" between the American People and your administration.
As heinous as Manson is, he is an American Citizen. Bin Laden is not. What Holder is saying is that a captured Osama bin Laden deserves the same rights as an American citizen. Culberson did a great job of pointing out how ludicrous that sounds to most Americans.
