Pawlenty: Holder Should Resign Over Ghailani

Friday, 19 Nov 2010 02:41 PM

Attorney General Eric Holder didn’t make too many allies over his stance that suspected terrorists should be tried in civilian courts, especially after Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani was declared not guilty of all but one charge in a civilian court decision this week. Indeed, Republican Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty said on the Hugh Hewitt radio show that Holder should resign over the policy, Poltico reports.
