    Re: White House: Boston suspect will not be treated as combatant

    I personally don't believe anyone should be labeled as an "enemy combatant" and indefinitely detained. It goes against the way we do things. We have given trials to a lot of evil people in our history...we shouldn't allow the actions of one to change the way we handle issues. Nobody should EVER be indefinitely detained under our government.

    The White House said Monday it will not treat the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon attack as an enemy combatant.

    White House press secretary Jay Carney said that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was charged Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill and injure people, would be tried as a terrorist in the federal court system.

    "This is absolutely the right way to go and the appropriate way to go,” Carney said a Monday’s White House press briefing.

    Carney said the department of Justice and Attorney General Eric Holder, as well the entire national security team, support not trying the terror suspect as an enemy combatant.

    Number of Republicans had called on the Obama administration to declare Tsarnaev an enemy combatant and put him in military detention in order to gather intelligence from him. They argue this would allow the goverment to gather more information from Tsarnaev for a longer period of time.

    The government has yet to read Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, and Carney on Monday declined to comment on how long the Justice Department might question Tsarnaev under the public safety exemption from Miranda.

    Well, pete, I think you have it wrong....I don't think that Graham was talking about trying him as an EC, but rather designating him as such for interrogation....I don't think that he can be tried as an EC being an American citizen can he?

    ap today

    Sixteen hours after investigators began interrogating him, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings went silent: he'd just been read his constitutional rights.

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev immediately stopped talking after a magistrate judge and a representative from the U.S. Attorney's office entered his hospital room and gave him his Miranda warning, according to four officials of both political parties briefed on the interrogation. They insisted on anonymity because the briefing was private.

    it's a strange thing to say to a terrorist, you have the right to remain silent

    newsday:

    The flow of information from a hospitalized terror suspect to FBI interrogators stopped abruptly Monday after a federal magistrate at a bedside proceeding read him his Miranda rights, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

    For the prior 16 hours, the interrogators had been grilling the wounded suspect, accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, charged Sunday with using a weapon of mass destruction and malicious property damage. They were questioning him under a narrow public-safety exception to the rights that arresting authorities must read arrestees under the landmark 1966 Supreme Court precedent.

    One of the sources lamented that valuable intelligence may have been lost because Tsarnaev, 19, stopped cooperating after the warnings by the magistrate, Marianne B. Bowler.

    fox:

    Two officials with knowledge of the FBI briefing on Capitol Hill said the FBI was against stopping the investigators' questioning and was stunned that the judge, Justice Department prosecutors and public defenders showed up, feeling valuable intelligence may have been sacrificed as a result.

    The FBI had been questioning Tsarnaev for 16 hours before the judge called a start to the court proceeding, officials familiar with the Capitol Hill briefing told Fox News. Moreover, the FBI informed lawmakers that the suspect had been providing valuable intelligence, but stopped talking once the magistrate judge read him his rights.

    That's OK, the liberals in Boston will be glad to tell conservatives to pay for it.

    Re: White House: Boston suspect will not be treated as combatant

    oh, yes, i forgot

    the ap source above also goes on for a number of paragraphs about how "authorities had previously said dzokhar exchanged gunfire with them for more than an hour"

    but it turns out, ap apprises, that when the killer was found in the boat he was unarmed

    it just really looks like these people don't know what they're doing, incompetence at almost every level

    it's really extremely dangerous

    that's not spin, lynn

    could the affable, gaffe-able veep be trying to diminish any of this?

    are these utterances meant to be reassuring?

    Let him be a martyr - we will continue to hunt them down and kill them.

    Our asses have been hanging in the breeze since 9/11.

    The trial is the least of our worries.

    Cripe!
    Hence the reason we should send a clear message to the terrorists of the world that we will act swiftly and viciously, when we capture them and not treat them with kid gloves, the way we do, now and will do again with this clown.

    The Obama Regime can't afford--politically--to be forced to admit that the war on terror is over and that Islamic extremists really are a threat to our security and our liberty.
