US Considering Dropping Charges Against bin Laden

US Considering Dropping Charges Against bin Laden

According to sources in the Justice Department, the Obama Administration is pushing for the reversal of charges levied against purported al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden is under indictment from U.S. courts for his roles in the bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, as well as the September 11, 2001 attacks.

This move comes as new Attorney General Eric Holder is promising a more "fair and open" Justice Department. Holder is the first African-American Attorney General and is a close confidant of the President.

According to a draft report circulating at the DOJ, Holder has asked that the charges against bin Laden and deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri be "suspended" until the time of their capture or death. Effectively, this would drop all charges against the two.

Bin Laden was never charged with the attacks on 9-11 by any department.



This is so bizzare on so many levels...

talk about messing with our heads...

Admitting Osama wasn't even involved? Revealing Muslim loyalties in this administration? Attempting to totally trash the previous administration? Getting rid of a name that is too close to the current President's?

I am flummoxed...
