Eric Holder: Our Most Effective Terror-Fighting Weapon Is…

…Why, the civil court system of course:

Holder’s declaration came in a Thursday speech to hundreds of progressive lawyers, advocates, judges and students gathered at the American Constitution Society’s annual gala. “I know that – in distant countries, and within our own borders – there are people intent on, and actively plotting to, kill Americans,” he told his legal peers in the enthusiastic audience. “Victory and security will not come easily, and they won’t come at all if we adhere to a rigid ideology, adopt a narrow methodology, or abandon our most effective terror-fighting weapon – our Article III [civil] court system,” he declared to much applause.

That’s taken nearly verbatim from Churchill’s famous “We shall fight them in the courtroom” speech.

Holder is a member of the elite Justice Department SEAL team (Summon, Exhibit, Appeal and Litigate) that Osama bin Laden feared more than anything.
