The Weekly Standard

Quote:
The Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan, according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. “The administration has decided to change the focus to law enforcement. Here’s the problem. You have foreign fighters who are targeting US troops today – foreign fighters who go to another country to kill Americans. We capture them…and they’re reading them their rights – Mirandizing these foreign fighters,” says Representative Mike Rogers, who recently met with military, intelligence and law enforcement officials on a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan.
Didn't we already try the "law enforcement" route when Bubba was in office? Didn't it fail miserably, leading directly to 9/11? While we were treating UBL and his group like common criminals, they were attacking throughout the 90's, which led to the planning and implementation of 9/11.

Obama in March: 'Now, do these folks deserve Miranda rights? Do they deserve to be treated like a shoplifter down the block? Of course not.'

hussein obama says one thing out one side of his mouth and does the opposit. He is not to be trusted on anything!

Shouldn't you be saying that we should wait until we know the whole story? After all, we don't know any details yet. One Republican legislator has seen the Miranda rights being administered to a detainee. He surmised that this was part of a bigger initiative. There are no comments from administration officials. Shouldn't we wait until more information becomes available before castigating anyone?

Attacking the source is a well-known tactic used by people who have nothing
substantive to say about the topic at hand.

Now go to the blackboard and write 500 times "Faux News Kicks Ms. NBC's butt bloody 24/7"....

I'm guessing we'll have to go to the UN and ask for timeouts during battle to read folks their "rights" even though they aren't US citizens. Insanity has taken over our government.
