During a congressional testimony Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said the U.S. won't bring back Osama bin Laden alive. Holder, when asked whether bin Laden would be read his Miranda rights upon capture, responded that the U.S. would never have to make that call. "Let's deal with reality," Holder said. "You're talking about a hypothetical that will never occur. The reality is that we will be reading Miranda rights to the corpse of Osama bin Laden... He will be killed by us, or he will be killed by his own people so he's not captured by us. We know that." During the hearing, Republicans argued that the Obama administration would give the 9/11 planners the same legal rights as American citizens, and Holder said, yes, they would be treated like any other murderer—Charles Manson for example. Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) took issue with that, saying, "The disconnect between this administration and your mind-set is so completely opposite that of where the vast majority of the American people are," and added that Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) was elected in January because voters oppose the president's terrorism policy. The hearing was legislators' first chance to grill Holder since he backed off a plan to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City.
