The attorney general told graduates that federal courts are capable of handling terrorism cases, accusing critics of “ignoring reality.”

Attorney General Eric Holder staunchly maintained that federal courts are capable of handling terrorism cases Saturday, accusing critics of the approach of “ignoring reality.”

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Holder was unflinching in maintaining that the U.S. court system is the right place to try terrorists, and dismissed any argument to the contrary.

“Let me be clear: those who claim that our federal courts are incapable of handling terrorism cases are not registering a dissenting opinion,” he said. “They are simply wrong.”
