John Bolton Still Touting Pre-9-11 Mentality on Terrorism Trials.

Why is this moronic man still given air time?

Here Bolton argues against trying terrorists at all, saying that he would prefer simply holding them indefinitely. It's a startling reminder that, once any member of the Bush administration mentions "terrorism", then they stop believing in the law altogether.

Trying terrorists for their crimes is apparently displaying "a pre-9-11 mentality". The correct post 9-11 mentality requires locking them up and throwing away the key. Because that mindset has never caused the US any problems.

It's FOX News, which pretty much explains it all. If this was any other network, then the question would be much more pertinent. Since it's FAUX, though, it's less about news than it is about shameless propaganda.

You're right, but I would imagine even they have tired of him. But then, I'm talking rubbish, as they still allow Bill Kristol airtime and no-one talks more tosh than he does.
