He was seized by a U.S. Army Delta Force squad on the streets of Tripoli on October 5 and whisked onto a Navy ship in the Mediterranean Sea where he was questioned by a team of interrogators.

I guess Obama and Holder finally got what they wanted. Now we will try terrorists in a civilian court.

These people should be tried and executed in a military court.

My advice is don’t be in New York when this guys fellow terrorists decide to blow hell our of the place.
