"Shoot him in the head," the radio and TV personality declared on Fox & Friends Tuesday.
"We've just captured the second most wanted guy in Al Qaeda," Beck said, evidently referring to the Taliban leader. "The first thing out of my mind -- shoot him in the head. Shoot him in the head before it goes into a court and we're doing all this nonsense back and forth. He's a bad guy. Shoot him in the head."
"You would shoot him before they even try to get information?" co-host Gretchen Carlson asked.
"If I were in charge, we'd be interrogating him," Beck replied. "And we'd interrogate him, and interrogate him, and interrogate him and then we'd shoot him in the head. ... Shoot him in the head before we all of a sudden release him into, what? Primary schools in New York City? What are we going to do with this guy?"
