Eric Holder Must Go!

Ahmed Ghailani
After learning of the Ghailani verdict on Wednesday, Senator Mitch McConnell was quoted as saying: “Yesterday’s acquittal in a federal court of accused terrorist Ahmed Ghailani on all but one of 285 charges of conspiracy and murder is all the proof we need that the administration’s approach to prosecuting terrorists has been deeply misguided and indeed potentially harmful as a matter of national security....When it comes to terrorism, we should err on the side of protecting the American people.”

We agree. The verdict yesterday was also a verdict on Atttorney General Eric Holder and the man who appointed him to the office, Barack Hussein Obama. Indicted in 2001 for the 1998 bombings of the United States Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, Ghailani admitted to his role in the assault during interrogation. The military prosecutors in Guantanamo charged him with war crimesin 2001, and he should have been tried as an enemy combatant in a military tribunal. Yet, last year, in 2009, he was transferred to Manhattan by the administration to await a civilian trial. We do not agree that he was entitled to this privilige. As one commentator expressed, "He will be out in twenty years!"

Holder's insistence on trying Ghailani in a civilian court was not only a huge blunder on his part, but also showed a distinct lack of judicial wisdom. Mr. Holder is obviously incapable of differentiating the rights of civilian criminals caught at home breaking the law, from those of enemy combatants who were captured in the field of battle. Had the New York juror not found Ghailani guilty of one of the 285 charges against him, we would have had to worry about yet another terrorist walking freely among us.

We believe it is time that Mr. Obama replaced Eric Holder, before he can do irreparable damage to the Department of Justice and the American judicial system.

To learn more about the Ghailani trial and the subsequent verdict Two Sisters From The Right recommend that you read the article below which appeared in the Weekly Standard.

The article entitled  Smearing America in Defense of a Terrorist - On the anti - Americanism of Ghailani's pro bono counsel written by Thomas Joscelyn discusses the verdict as well as the blatant and "crude-anti Americanism" by the Center for Constitutional Rights which alleged that a Muslim cannot receive a fair trial in the United States. If Mr. Holder and Mr. Obama intended to make that same statement, they are serving the wrong country and the wrong people. The Joscelyn article is a Two Sisters recommendation.

I totally agree with all about Holder. It is PAST time for him to go! The only problem is, given his record, Obama could appoint someone much worse........we need Ashcroft again, or someone like him. I wonder if congress could fire Holder?

I believe that the U.S. House of Representatives has the authority to bring impeachment charges against the Attorney General of the United States. If this is incorrect, I'd like to know who does.

Eric Holder is a tool of the Marxists in our Govt. When Janet Reno was the A.G., Holder acted to send Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba. This man, a Black, is like many of his race in the United States: contacts of the NAACP and Black Caucus with Fidel Castro over the past several decades has contaminated them with the ideology of Communism. Though he and Obama and several others do not call themselves Communists we have to conclude, from their actions and words, that they simply are, and that they have no love for the Capitalist way of life. What worries me lately is the decided Muslim-protection Political Correctness exhibited by not only Holder but by Obama with his ambivalence and ambiguity.
