Skip to comments.(White House says) Boston bombing suspect charged, will not be treated as enemy combatant
Posted on 04/22/2013 10:44:33 AM PDT by CitizenM
The White House said Monday that the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing will not be treated as an enemy combatant, in response to calls from Republican lawmakers to consider that option.
The announcement came as a sealed complaint was filed against suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Fox News has learned that the suspect made an initial appearance in front of a federal magistrate judge at the hospital where he is still being treated. No plea was entered.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the suspect remains in "serious condition" at the hospital.

Was there ever a doubt?
Here’s his ‘criminal complaint’:
I also heard reported that the charges are sealed.
Because he is a naturalized American citizen that is why.
Why is the Federal Government and White House commenting on this?
If it had been a Southern Baptist white guy born and raised in TX I’m sure he would have been promptly declared an enemy combatant with no constitutional rights.
That’s my big concern with the executive being able to unilaterally decide who is and who isn’t an enemy combatant.
It’s just too easy to arbitrarily circumvent then Constitution at the whim of one individual with no accountability.
Since he is a naturalized citizen, treason is more appropriate than foreign combatant status. Of course, that was left off as well.
As soon as he’s well Michelle plans on visiting him in the hospital
I just got a low point in my stomach after hearing this on the radio news. He could have been questioned by the counter terrorism intelligence and then handed back for processing through the courts. I guess he will end up in Colorado prison and being interviewed by Oprah. He’s not a kid. The media has already begun his defense; it’s his age/mental illness. They now will wait until more are murdered before they act accordingly that we are at war with radicals.
“Because he is a naturalized American citizen that is why.”
But Obama’s drone strike rules include US citizens, when they act as enemy combatants! Should we move the guy to Yemen?
He is being charge with using a weapon of mass destruction meaning his final destination will be either Terra Haute, IN or Florence, CO.
Obama considers him a fellow traveller.
Was it in response to a question from a reporter?
This is what happens when our government gives citizenship to enemy combatants.
WH says Boston Bombing Suspect will NOT be treated as enemy combatant...”
Good. Obama is about to reap the genuine disfavor of America, including the low info. voters who elected him.
After all, we do need to make sure not to offend our Muslim jihad supporting so called “friends” at home and abroad./SARC.
These evil men actually renounced all ties to the USA, whether legal immigrants or citizens. They renounced by theior activitioy to attack inocent men, women and children with weapons of mass destruction. They are not entitled to due process. They deserve to be classified as enemy combatants.
What Obama has done by this decision, is to inform America that the wanton slaughter of innocent Americans is not an act of war sufficient to renounce citizenship rights, when during WWII, citizens were treated as enemy combatants AND HANGED for merely working for the Nazis, let alone blowing up Americans.
Obama agains is showing us that he is a fascist.Now the entire country can see that.
“Now the entire country can see that.”
And half will still faithfully, dutifully turn a blind eye to it.
How did they treat McVeigh?
He’s an American citizen who committed crimes on American soil. He’ll be given a trial in an American court and left to rot (or executed) in an American prison.
The alternative is a “some-citizens-are-more-equal-than-others” system in which fair trials are no longer a right everyone has, but a privilege the government gives to the elite.
Now he can appear before a jury consisting of sympathetic liberal females, tearful that the poor boy was ‘brainwashed’ by his bigger brother and therefore not really responsible for his actions.
Yet you said it was exceptional and didn’t Mirandize him...
Naturalized....It sounds so...Natural! Naturally!
The nice way of saying he's another American hating foreigner from a Muslim country, dumped into our neighborhoods by government.
And half will still faithfully, dutifully turn a blind eye to it.>>>>>>>>>>
Then that half will definitely be seeing a lot more blood, perhaps their own.
The entire country will applaud and go back to planning their next cheap Mexican vacation. They do not see how any of this means anything to their own lives.
It is not fascism when the Left does it.
Do you really want to establish a legal precedent that US citizens can be treated as enemy combatants?
Wouldn't surprise me at all.
These gangsters in the Obozo administration are beyond despicable...
Weapons of mass destruction? Are you talking about the pressure cooker bomb that can be built by any average teenager? Treating this kid as an enemy combatant would just make a mockery of the entire war on terror.
yes, via WRKO:
>>BOSTON (AP) The U.S. Attorney General says the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has been charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property resulting in death.
In a statement Monday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder detailed the charge against 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv).
The charge carries a possible death sentence.
Only pro-life prayer warriors, pro-family advocates, and 2nd Amendment supporters are enemy combatants.
I would almost rather tear my tongue out rather than say this but the Urkel administration is correct on this one IMHO.
It is not fascism when the Left does it.>>>>>>>>>>>>
Then let the blood from IEDs flow.What Obama has done has ASSURED the increase in domestic terror incidents perpetrated by Obama’s fellow immigrants.
Oh yes, whenever Obama can act to increase violence and the destabilization of our civil society, he has done so.
Obama will have gone too far with this. Now Graham and others need to really lay it to Obama. If they do, they will win the public debate.
As soon as hes well Michelle plans on visiting him in the hospital.
Yep, I'm sure Obama has a message for her to give to this kid (news libs are calling these terrorists a couple of kids) just as she did to the pretty boy prince. Saudi's are a protected class now, and it looks like also terrorists. Domestics have been for a while, and now foreign.
We have lost it - no wonder we can’t win a war on terrorism, we don’t treat them like terrorists.
GET A ROPE!
I agree with the charge. It doesn’t really matter since he could get the federal death penalty for using an explosive device.
“Because he is a naturalized American citizen that is why.”
Good. Let’s hang him for treason.
Ergo he should be tried for treason as well.
The most important thing here however is to extract as much information as possible from him about who turned him and how so we can stop future actions like this.
Naturalization can be revoked. See 8 USC § 1451
No Enemy Combatant check
No Mirada check
My client goes free
and i got my law license out of a box of Cheerios
I’ll bet this trial will not be half as long as the Jodi Arias trial which, seemingly, has been going on longer than the Watergate hearings.
So no terrorism charge at all??!!!
That means they do not plan on tying this to any other groups or Islamic terror.
Folks should be outraged!!
You have got to be either grossly ignorant or kidding. They certainly were weapons of mass destruction. And the perps are definitely enemy combatants in fact.
The FBI has blood on their hands and complaint is sealed to prevent that from being publicized.
“Do you really want to establish a legal precedent that US citizens can be treated as enemy combatants?”
Already been done. They shot this guy- in 1942.
I don’t because no mention of terror charges were made. I fear this means that any ties to Islamists and terror groups will not be admitted as evidence.
Just the way this criminal administration wants it!
Revoke his citizenship 8 USC § 1451(c), 8 USC § 1424(a)(4). He is an enemy and deserves battlefield summary execution.
[[Obama agains is showing us that he is a fascist.Now the entire country can see that.]]
NO they can’t see thjat- ther MSM will make soem lae excsuse why- and the unsuspecting lbieral drone viewers iwll eat it up thinking hteir govenrment is really looking out for them and hteir best itnerests-
only the enlightened few will get to see once again, what traitors the left are
I can’t believe it either. :/
Same design IED they use in Afghanistan and Pakistan. I saw video of a “factory” in Paki where they were making them by the dozens.
