Republicans Blame AG Eric Holder For Outcome Of Former Gitmo Detainee Civilian Trial

It's obvious that Ahmed Ghailani was aquitted on all but
one charge was because Bush authorized the use of
torture and not the fact that he was tried in a civilian
court.  If anyone should be blamed for this outcome
it's Bush and definitely not Holder.

Ghailani was the first former Gitmo detainee to be tried
in civilian court.

Ghailani was acquitted in federal court on more than 280
charges in connection with the 1998 bombings of the U.S.
embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, including one murder
count for each of the 224 people killed. He was found guilty
for only one charge, conspiracy to destroy government
