I Thought It Was Only the Right Who Hated America...

Sen. Conrad Suggests That People Who Don’t Believe in Civilian Trials for Terrorists Should Leave America and ‘Go Somewhere Else

Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) told that civilian courts are well-suited to prosecute al Qaeda terrorists and that "if people don't believe in our system, maybe they ought to go somewhere else.”

Conrad also dismissed a question about the rights of terrorists captured on foreign battlefields and the rules of evidence in terms of a civilian court trial as not serious.

The Left used to mock the "America: Love It of Leave It" bumperstickers. Now they agree with the sentiment. Of course, they miss (or dismiss) the reasons people are concerned about trying terrorists in the U.S., which has nothing to do with hating America.
