Lt. Col. Jeff Addicott visited 'Mornings With Ken and Bernie' today to discuss legal proceedings surrounding Osama Bin Laden's son-in-law.  Lt. Col. Addicott is a former Green Beret and Director for the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary's University.  Expressing our outrage when asking Addicott about the fact that Sulaiman Abu Ghaith was charged in a civilian court Addicott said,

Well I'm glad to see somebody has some common sense because if that's your response you win the prize.  Most of the American people are going "that's fine"...USA Today covered the story on page two...the Wall Street Journal had it front page saying "this is the dumbest thing this week by the Obama Administration".

We noted that news of Ghaith's not-guilty plea in a Federal Court did not break nationally until Friday afternoon Addicott added,

It breaks Friday, there's a slow news day and then the weekend buries the story so by Monday it's forgotten.

We asked Addicott why we didn't use a drone to take-out Ghaith,

They could have killed this guy in Jordan but he was in custody of the Jordanians so it would have been against the law to kill him.

Addicott had some less-than-kind words of Attorney General Eric Holder concerning Sulaiman Abu Ghaith,

This confirms my belief that Holder is not fit to run the shoe department at Penny's.  My apologies to the people who work at Penny's.

You can hear more of Addicott's views on the war on terrorism, the Obama Administration and Attorney General Eric Holder by listening to the interview:
