I guess Senator Leahy lumps the 911 mastermind in with your every day ordinary criminals. It is likely we will never capture Bin Laden, but if we do he certainly should be interrogated, and relentlessly so. In the process we might just squeeze out of him valuable information on other terrorists and their plans.
Bin Laden is the terrorist responsible for planning and executing the horrific attack on Americas' homeland. In other words he and his fellow Jihadists committed and act of war. Should he be captured he should be treated and tried as a war criminal. Miranda rights be damned. On this issue Senator Graham is right and Senator Leahy is wrong, dead wrong.
There are two possible reasons the Senator is taking this position. First, he is providing political cover for Attorney General Holder, or second he is just plain out of touch with reason. In either case his comments on the following live C-SPAN spot were just plain foolish at best.
