WASHINGTON- Last night, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., spoke on the Senate floor about the Obama administration’s detention policy and the mishandling of the interrogation al-Qaida operative Abu Anas al-Libi. Al-Libi, one of the alleged co-conspirators behind the 1998 bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, was captured in Libya last week and was held on a U.S. Navy ship before arriving in New York to be tried in a civilian court. On Wednesday, he had his initial appearance in federal court, where he entered a plea of not-guilty to the pending indictment, and he now has a court-appointed lawyer at his disposal. Sen. Chambliss believes valuable intelligence was lost by allowing al-Libi to go straight to federal criminal court, instead of being declared an enemy combatant.
