WASHINGTON - Attorney General Eric Holdertold Congress on Tuesday that Osama bin Laden will never face trial in the United States because he will not be captured alive.
In testy exchanges with House Republicans, the attorney general compared bin Laden to mass murderer Charles Manson and predicted that events would ensure "we will be reading Miranda rights to the corpse of Osama bin Laden" not to the al-Qaida leader as a captive.
Pressed further on that point, Holder said: "The possibility of catching him alive is infinitesimal. He will be killed by us or he will be killed by his own people so he can't be captured by us." -- Associated Press

"The reality is, we will be reading Miranda rights to a corpse."
Osama bin Laden "will never appear in an American courtroom," Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. told House members at a hearing Tuesday. "Let's deal with the reality here," Holder said in response to questions from Rep. John Culberson (R-Tex.). "The reality is, we will be reading Miranda rights to a corpse."

General Stanley McChrystal said Wednesday that given the opportunity, the U.S. would like to capture Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden alive, appearing to contradict the "true" threat made Tuesday by Attorney General Eric Holder.

Obama says Bush-approved water- boarding was torture.
(Reuters) - President Barack Obama called simulated drowning a form of torture on Wednesday, and defended his decision to end a practice used against terrorism suspects by the Bush administration.
Obama said the process, known as waterboarding, violated American ideals and was not appropriate even if it made getting information from suspected enemies easier.
"Waterboarding violates our ideals and our values. I do believe that it is torture," he told a news conference.
"That's why I put an end to these practices."
Pressed on whether that meant former President George W. Bush's administration had sanctioned torture, Obama said: "I believe that waterboarding was torture. And I think that ... whatever legal rationales were used, it was a mistake."
“Thoroughly scanning and verifying the identity documents of every applicant for admission to the United States is of the utmost importance to the national security. The DHS has no more important responsibility than the protection of all Americans and preventing the entry of any elements posing a potential threat. Powerful information technology puts the data at the fingertips of CBP officers in the field in real time. While the systems of checks are not infallible and need continued improvement, they should be diligently utilized by the officers at our ports of entry to combat the threats we face as a nation,” Davis concluded.
Dear Mr. Terrorist/Boogyman/Dude with the gavel, please don't kill me or torture me, more. I want to see my daughter grow old. You don't know me except what you hear in the New World Oder, in the mega-Corporate owned news stations.
Paid for by the mega-Corporate owned prisons. Like N.B.C. I believe it is run in part by Hizzz Oder, Lord Matz.
WE NOW PAUSE FOR A STATION BREAK.

NBC apologizes for cutting “under God” from Pledge of Allegiance before U.S. Open
NBC apologized for cutting the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance in its leadup to coverage to the U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club.
The move quickly drew criticism Dan Hicks said, during the broadcast of Open action:
“We began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago and when we did it was our intent to begin the coverage of this U.S. Open Championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being held in our nation’s capital for the third time. Regrettably, a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out. It was not done to upset anyone and we’d like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it.”
Mr. Terrorist, if you will find me a "good, decent, 'truly-honest'" lawyer from your country, able to sue NBC, et al., for calling me a gang member, and the cops for censoring this site, in an unlawful raid without any warrant, I will trade you (reward you) with talking to my fellow cops, and General Eric H. Holder Jr., whom by the way loves me to death, and see if I can put in a good word, or two, for you, to prevent their true threats of shooting you in the back and "reading Miranda rights to your corpse."
And, seeing as how I am sure you feel the same about George B, and Americans in general, maybe you or your buddy's could rent some space here, and offer your own rewards against the, what is it again, oh yea, the infidels of America?
As a sign of good-faith, I created a custom Infidel's Rewards Page. I could let you have the entire page name, exclusively for one year, for say, ...150 barrels of that black shit bubbling out of the sand over there, that we didn't go to war over, by you-know-who.
Now that's what I call my "innovative legal theory."
Wow, Americans are being persecuted now, on theories alone...not laws. Anyone else, "stand by that decision?" If ya do, contact me.
Happy Independence Day America!! 2009
Two Stasi agents are on a surveillance mission and quite bored. First agent: "Hey, what are you thinking about?" Second agent: "Oh, nothing special. The same as you..." First agent: "In that case, you're under arrest!"
Little Mohammed entered his classroom on the first day of school.
"What is your name?" asked the teacher.
"Mohammed", answered the kid.
"You are in America now. From now on your name will be Kevin," -replied the teacher.
In the evening, Mohammed returned home. "How was your day, Mohammed?" asked his mother.
"My name is not Mohammed. I'm in America and now my name is Kevin."
"Ah, are you ashamed of your name, are you trying to dishonor your parents, your heritage, your religion? Shame on you!", and she beat him. Then she called his father and he too beat him.
The next day Mohammed returned to school.
When the teacher saw him with all the bruises she asked, "What happened to you little Kevin"?
"Well ma'am, 20 hours after becoming an American, I was attacked by two fuckin' Arabs."
“If it is true that Mel threatened to burn her house down, that could be considered a criminal terrorist threat. A terrorist threat can be anything designed to induce harm or kill another individual, it doesn’t have to come from Al-Qaeda to be classified as terrorism,” explained Santa Monica-based Criminal Defense Attorney, Steve Cron. “There is a real possibility that the police department or a prosecuting agency could take action.”
After nearly four decades of experience in the law, Howard Matz found himself embroiled in international controversy over treatment of Taliban and Al Qaeda prisoners at Guantanamo Bay's Camp X-Ray. JudgeMatz presided over the first legal challenge to the UnitedStates Government's treatment of those prisoners, in a petition brought by a civil rights group seeking habeas corpus for 158 "detainees."
JudgeMatz dismissed the petition on the grounds that UnitedStates courts do not have jurisdiction over the Cuban base where detainees are held and that the petitioners lacked standing since they had no "significant relationship" with the prisoners. In his ruling, JudgeMatz emphasized that "nothing in this ruling suggests that the captives are entitled to no legal protection whatsoever."
After graduating from Harvard Law School, Matz taught police science and clerked for a UnitedStatesDistrictJudge before joining Hughes Hubbard's Los Angeles office in 1970. From 1974 to 1978, Matz served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California.
Contemptible police tactics - Cops raid the home of a licensed medical marijuana provider in Washington, handcuff the fourteen year old son and put a gun to his head, and search the nineteen year old daughter and take the contents of her mickey-mouse wallet.
How To Survive Traffic Stops in America, Submit, Instantly! - What the cops want is immediate obedience and submission. Many cops are ex-military and view the civilian motorists of America about like they viewed the hapless peasants of Iraq and Afghanistan, that is, with contempt, not as fellow citizens deserving of civility and respect. It is a possibly lethal mistake to do anything other than submit, instantly and obey! Or be ready to shoot first. But aim high.
