Holder vows to keep fighting for terror trials in civilian courts

Washington (CNN) - Attorney General Eric Holder promised an audience of progressives and liberals Thursday that he will not abandon the fight to steer accused terrorists to civilian court trials rather than military tribunals.

Holder lashed out at Congress for forcing him to recently surrender on the issue, and to place accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other co-conspirators before military tribunals at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    Some people have zero common sense.

    If the courts turn loose rapists, murderers, thieves, gang members, etc. on a daily basis, what will stop them from turning loose terrorists? Nothing.......that's what.

    Holder's office, is a laughing stock, and a joke against the decent citizens of this country.
