Audio: Gaffney interviews McCarthy on RSVP to Holder, Obama

Andy McCarthy explains in further detail his decision to decline an invitation from Attorney General Eric Holder, and indirectly Barack Obama, to join a rountable on policies regarding the detention of terrorists. Frank Gaffney from the Center for Security Policy interviews Andy in this seven-minute clip, who explains in greater detail his objections outlined in his letter earlier this week. He also discusses his objections to the appointment of Harold Koh to the Obama administration:

Andy makes an interesting off-hand joke, suggesting that the Obama administration may release the Uighers in Gitmo later that evening to bury the news in a weekend cycle. Instead, they buried the news that they will likely restart the military commissions at Gitmo instead — which gives readers an idea what they believe is the kind of news that needs to be buried. They’d probably release the Uighers in coordination with the live broadcast of Countdown.
