McCain: If We Get Bin Laden A Nuremberg Type Trial Would Be Okay

A lot of people scoffed when Obama floated the idea a few weeks ago of a Nuremberg style trial. McCain's own blog pointed out an international trial meant it would be unlikely that bin Laden would face a death sentence.

Today however, McCain embraced the idea.

We have various options. The Nuremberg Trials are certainly an example of the kind of tribunal that we could move forward with. I don't think we'd have any difficulty in devising an international -- internationally supported mechanism that would mete out justice. There's no problem there.

An international trial for bin Laden is a lousy idea. He attacked us and he says he is at war with us. Fine, after 9/11 we got in the game and have been taking the fight to him and his followers. If he's still alive and we capture him, we deal with him our way.

Why in the world would McCain want to bring our 'allies' in to that trial? These are the same allies who for the most part won't provide enough troops in Afghanistan and limit the actions of the ones they do send. Yet McCain thinks they will be willing to deal with bin Laden as harshly as we will? Does he buy into the idea that only an "internationally supported mechanism" would be legitimate?

Obama's Arrogance World Tour had just about pushed me to the point of sucking it up and voting for McCain instead of sitting it out or voting some third party nut job. But Maverick can't leave well enough alone, can he?
