Because he is a naturalized American citizen that is why.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the suspect remains in "serious condition" at the hospital.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Really, really have mixed emotions on this one. He is a citizen, the crime was committed on US soil, he didn;t fight with a force of America's enemies but he apparently conspired with them which makes him a traitor also.

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.

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.

If 0bama's pansy-azz FBI hadn't stopped with their 'sensitivity' crap and their new Muslim outreach mindset, this bombing would NEVER have happened in the first place. The FBI is complicit in this event because they failed to heed OBVIOUS warnings on Tamerlan since 2011.

The FBI has blood on their hands and complaint is sealed to prevent that from being publicized.
