Re: Too Many Lawyers?

Jennifer: I think the Thompson camp’s response to the “due process” flap (in the update at the bottom of that post) is pretty good:

Thompson communications director Todd Harris clarifies that his boss wants to give no more rights to bin Laden then those terrorists detained at Guantanamo enjoy.

What Thompson meant, Harris said, is that “before you kill him we need to get every single bit of information out of this guy that we possibly can.”

“Any candidate who is suggesting that we shouldn’t milk bin Laden for every ounce of al Qaeda information that he has, doesn’t understand the long-term battle against terrorism.”

It’s likely that someone (probably Romney) will attack Thompson over this at the next debate. If Thompson can give a version of the above answer, he’ll be fine. If he can’t, he’s every bit as untalented a politician as the most vociferous Thompson-skeptics have posited.
