Prosecute Christmas Bomber in Federal Court

Bob Barr Civil Libertarian / Georgia Republican acquired a reputation as one of the most conservative members of Congress.

Atlanta Journal Constitution - Op-Ed
6:00 am January 11, 2010, by Bob Barr

In the aftermath of the foiled Christmas Day bombing, the media and several of my former colleagues in Congress have challenged the Obama administration’s decision to try Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in federal court rather than by military commission. The administration’s decision, however, should be welcomed not criticized, as a clear affirmation of the strength and resiliency of our criminal justice system.

As a former member of Congress and former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. In my opinion, that magnificent document is far stronger than critics of the administration’s decision
