      How does that effect the workings of executive orders versus legislation action?

      How does that negate the fact that Holder TRIED to try KSM in Manhattan and the Senate voted 99-0 to stop him?

      Congress shit the bed and Obama is trying to do something to thread a very small needle here.

      •  Since when does the Senate control where the DOJ (4+ / 0-)

        prosecutes someone?

        And since when can an executive order override the Constitution and out treaty obligations under the Geneva Convention?

        I guess it would take a constitutional scholar to answer that one . . .
