Posted on 04/20/2013 6:13:41 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
President Obama and his national security team met today in the wake of the dramatic arrest Friday night of Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect of the terror attack at the Boston Marathon.
The weekend meeting lasted 90 minutes and was attended by FBI Director Robert Mueller, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, CIA director John Brennan, Attorney General Eric Holder, and other members of the National Security Council, according to a White House statement.
Vice President Joe Biden joined the Situation Room session via teleconference; Biden traveled to Detroit today for an evening fundraiser for the Michigan Democratic Party.
The President commended the work that was done to pursue justice in the Boston Marathon bombing, and underscored the need to continue gathering intelligence to answer the remaining questions about this terrorist attack going forward, the White House statement said.
Federal authorities tell ABC News they are planning to invoke a public safety exception with Tsarnaev, which allows for them to engage the naturalized U.S. citizen in limited interrogations when there is a threat of danger to the public, without him being read his Miranda rights.
But as the president met with his council today some Republican lawmakers urged the Obama administration to label Tsarnaev an enemy combatant as well, a legal status that would put him under the purview of a military commission, rather than a civilian court....

First time he has met them?
They gotta get the saudi out.
National Security Team the Brotherhood 6!
National Security Team the Brotherhood 6!
Alternate title: “Obama huddles with propaganda team to spin his way out of AIDING/ABETTING THE SAUDI STUDENT, ALLEGEDLY AN AL-QAEDA OPERATIVE, by trying to deport the guy in a hurry before the investigation officially places Student at scene of Boston Marathon bombing.”
Wonder if he is afraid of Glen Becks promise to go public over background of original “person of interest”, the Saudi national reportedly from Royal Family.
The first priority of Obama is: “ How can we get them to the DNC safe house in Dagistan?”
I’d say a lot of legal questions are going to come up on Moday if that deportation order on the Saudi kid actually does say he is linked to the Boston bombing.
Yep, and Beck has promised to go public on Tuesday.
Please, if anybody believes that BB (Bath-house Barry) was sitting in that meeting thinking of anything other than what can he do to help his muslim brotherhood dodge this bullet, I gotta bridge I would like to sell you. Duuh, he has a track record! Nidal Hassan’s a “work place violence” deal. The Arkansas soldier was not a terrorist, and so on.
One bullet he could be worried about is somehow someway some patriots out in the hinterland somewhere put a halt to the 200 plus tanks the sob gave his pals.
One thing is for sure, in my mind, and that is that he does not have the American Citizen at heart in this meeting, or ever.
If the Obama government issued a report that the sun will rise in the east tomorrow morning I wouldn’t believe a word of it.
Makes me nervous, they are getting fast and loose.
I don’t like them being so freewheeling with the
structure of our laws.
They and that includes everyone up there in Washington
are changing the definitions of too many words.
And as someone once said, “Words have meanings.”
Rather like when they issue new currency, things
just are not the same...
Obama Convenes National Bureaucrats. Let the games begin. Thanks to citizens, citizen journalists and boots on the ground.
Tsarnaev = "enemy combatant" today
Tea Party = "enemy combatant" tomorrow
But as the president met with his council today some Republican lawmakers urged the Obama administration to label Tsarnaev an enemy combatant as well, a legal status that would put him under the purview of a military commission, rather than a civilian court....I've about had a belly-full of "some Republican lawmakers".
Well, that's good! They'd never be able to work this out without Biden's legal expertise and wisdom.
That's the same room and table he used for the Jobs Council photo ops.
Remember the Jobs Council?
