    Miranda rights are for Americans in the USA not Jihadist we're fighting a global war with.
    With the ongoing gitmo fiasco, the bush bash memo release flop, Pelosi&TheCIA, this will likely cause a crapstorm for Obama.
    I disagree with you. Miranda rights are interpreted by SCOTUS from the Bill of Rights, and our founding fathers designated those rights as "inalienable", meaning inherent, and given by God, not by any government.

    Which is why I don't see why so many conservatives are getting upset. A terrorist could confess to something before being read his rights, and that evidence would HAVE to be suppressed in court. Miranda usually stops a subject from talking :P
    Wrong. Miranda is only required when you have a suspect in custody and you are asking guilt seeking questions. Voluntary admissions are not restricted and not considered "fruit of the poisonous tree."

    Miranda does not "usually" stop someone from talking. Occasionally it does, not very often though. Good interrogators do not fear or lament Miranda. They deal with it. I've had suspect lawyer up immediately upon Miranda only to turn around two minutes later and say "I wanna talk."

    If a suspect doesn't want to talk, Miranda is irrelevant because they won't talk regardless of what you say.

    Terrorist shouldn't get any constitutional protections.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Miranda Rights for Terrorists

    In my opinion these warnings should be extended to anyone in U.S. custody on U.S. controlled soil who will be prosecuted.

    Miranda is a set of warnings, not rights by the way. And once they are placed into our legal system, they automatically get the same rights we get.

    Innocent until proven guilty. In case you haven't noticed, the U.S. doesn't always get it right with regard to who we label "terrorist" and then proceed to put in prison for years on end. Oh, and torture.
