Well, during his statement yesterday, President Obama did say ISIS would be brought to justice, so here’s Justice:

Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday announced that the Department of Justice has “an open criminal investigation” into the brutal killing of photojournalist James Foley by Islamic militants.

“Those who would perpetrate such acts need to understand something,” Holder said in Washington.

“This Justice Department, this Department of Defense, this nation – we have long memories and our reach is very wide,” he said. “We will not forget what happened and people will be held accountable, one way or the other.”

Let this send a message to terrorists who brutally murder Americans: The U.S. Justice Dept. will find you, fly you back to America, supply you with a taxpayer-funded attorney, and put you on trial in a Manhattan civilian court.

Rumor has it Holder’s decision to launch an investigation was sealed after he found out ISIS had an anti-Obama float in a Syrian parade.

Here’s how I see the DOJ investigation playing out: Holder will begin by demanding all ISIS correspondence; ISIS will say that’s all been lost due to a hard drive crash; Holder will then shrug and walk away.

Speaking of Obama’s statement yesterday, his declaration that ISIS would be “brought to justice” was quickly followed by a round of golf. The New York Daily News put it this way:

Oh my.

Even Chris Matthews can’t get the thrill back.
