"You really think this kid cant be convicted? You really think we dont have enough evidence beyond thebeyond the, I dont know, 300 or so eyewitnesses who were on the plane? The fact that we have the weapon that he tried to use? The fact that he confessed? You think thats not enough to get this kid convicted? You have that little faith in our criminal justice system? That little faith in the rule of law? You dont believe that a supermax federal American prison is capable of holding this kid?
You think it might be cool, instead, to martyr this kid as some impressive soldier, instead of some idiot confused rich kid who couldnt even handle blowing up his own junk with a bomb that was secreted in his own underpants? Were supposed to take national security advice from you guys? Really?" - Rachel Maddow, the anti-Mike-Allen.
