Casey Anthony Verdict Justifies Guantanamo Bay Tribunals Claims Republican Leader Mitch McConnell
"We just found with the Caylee Anthony case how difficult is to get a conviction in a U.S. court," McConnell, said this weekend on Fox News Sunday.
"I don't think a foreigner is entitled to all the protections of the Bill of Rights," he continued. "They should not be in U.S. courts. They should be at Guantanamo [Cuba] and before military commissions."
The legality and ethics of military tribunals is certainly a serious and complicated issue, and trying to bring the Casey Anthony trial into the discussion is something we'd hope would be beneath the dignity and intelligence of a high ranking American senator.
And lets be honest, its not really that hard to get a conviction in a U.S. court. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the entire world by a long shot. So it seems to us certainly someone is getting convicted in the United States.
