Senator: Justice System not Meant for Terrorists

Jul 6, 2011

While the Bowling Green Board of Commissioners didn’t pass a resolution asking the Department of Justice to move the trial of two suspected terrorists, U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., continued his efforts Tuesday. McConnell, the Senate minority leader, sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder asking Holder to reconsider his decision to hold civilian trials for Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, both arrested on terrorism charges in Bowling Green in May.
