It's BS, and shouldn't ever be done

Now to hear some 'conservatives' in another thread there is a 12 man sleeper cell out there that is pretty dumb not still not all are accounted for. In the other thread they are claiming Obama's crew shouldn't be downplaying the clear and present danger. They are sure more attacks are in the pipeline. That would seem to be an exception to quick 'readin' his rights'.
Many 'conservatives' feel this is Jihad and not demented, disenfranchised, disturbed youths like the Columbine whack jobs so I'd think they would be all fuzzy for treating this guy like a terrorist rather than a murderous punk.
Many 'conservatives' were highly critical of how quickly the underwear bomber was Miranda'd as many thought there was more than one bomber out there.
I wouldn't be comfortable with anything this guy says before being read his rights later being used against him in a court of law (I don't think they NEED any more than what they have to try him), but I can see the FBI at least trying to run down all the talk show rumors of a sleeper cell.
