the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.
Instead, he said the U.S. would like to capture and interrogate the top al-Qaeda leader but it’s more likely he would be killed.
“Our hope would be to capture him and interrogate him about al-Qaeda’s plans,” Holder said. “...Both in our attempts to capture him and what we know about the instructions to his guards, I think it is unlikely for him to be taken alive.”
Past reports suggest that bin Laden’s guards have orders not to allow him to be captured alive.
