Pretend for a minute you are Barack Obama.
At 7:30AM this morning, get a call telling you that a terrorist attack has been interrupted.
At 8:30AM you are briefed. Four hours earlier, a white male, approximately 40 years old was rear ended at a light, and knocked unconscious. When
police arrive they find very suspicious bits in his car, and decide to search the vehicle. By the time the suspect has regained conciousness the
police (working with the FBI) have determined that his vehicle is slightly radioactive. A judge is woken from bed and signs a warrant to search his
house. The police find a variety of bomb making material.
At 9:30AM the suspect, a self-identified evangelical Christian, admits to the plot. He claims that if he is part of a larger network of Christians,
working with hard-core Israelis, who are trying to provoke Iran. Their plan is to blow up dirty bombs are 50 of the largest churches in America.The
bombs are already in place.
Now here's the catch:
The FBI believe if he EVER sees the inside of ANY courthouse the bombers accomplices will detonate the bombs. They believe he has moles in various
agencies and they will know the second he is in any way processed.
Assuming a trial is therefore going to result in a massive terror attack, what do you do?
-Kill the guy?
-Lock him up somewhere and throw away the key?
-Try and turn him and use him to break the rest of the plot open?
I know a lot of you love 24, just wondering what people think Obama should do in this very specific (and ridiculous, I know) situation.
