The capture of Osama Bin Laden's son in law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, is stirring controversy over his scheduled appearance today in a federal court in New York City to face charges of trying to kill Americans.
Some Republicans, including Sen. Lindsay Graham, are arguing that Abu Ghaith shouldn't get the privilege of a trial in New York.
"I think we (are) setting a new precedent that will come back to bite us," Graham told reporters. "It's clear to me they snuck him in ... under the nose of Congress."
The South Carolina senator was joined at the news conference by Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, who said, "If you are that close to bin Laden, we want to develop all the information that person has."
This morning on "Starting Point," CNN contributor Fran Townsend explains the importance of the arrest of the man sometimes called the 'mouthpiece of Bin Laden.'
