Revealed: White House interrogated Somali jihadi for two months on Navy ship without Miranda warnings Hot Air

I have no problem with it and think the only mistake they made was to eventually send him to the US for trial. He should go to Gitmo and have a millitary trial, not a civilian one. However, the reason I link to this story is that if Bush had done this the media would be all over it. More of the double standard from the liberal media.

OK so when American soldiers are abused by their captors lets not hear any whining out of you about any laws.

You want to bring down the country to the level of lawless torturers. Live with the consequences.

The media did report the story http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/06/wo...n.html?_r=1&hp So you got that wrong too.

I didn't know they Mirandize enemy combatants from foreign countries during war?

And yet they're worried about some dumb illegal in Texas who is guilty but wasn't told of his "consular" rights.

I wish they'd shut the "eff" up.

Why don't I know? That is the question you should be asking yourself.

The mistake here was not in doing it, but in allowing the story to become public knowledge. He should have just been tossed overboard like Obama, er, Osama! Who the hell had to tell a reporter about this?

Kick, splash, end of story.

I see the spirit of Nazi prisoner of war camp staff is alive and well today in the heart of "patriotic" right wing base voters.

Out and out advocating the murder of prisoners under US control.

I do believe the issue was waterboarding vs not waterboarding, not whether or not a enemy combatant should be afforded a Miranda warning.

He claimed he was going to be more open, less secret, and follow the law.

He now is keeping secret prisoners on ships throughout the World ...denying them Habeus Corpus rights, and issuing an executive order limiting their Miranda rights.

How surprising is this considering he claims the right to assasinate US citizens as he alone deems justified.......as they walk the streets, sleep in their beds, drive cars?
