Boston Bombing Suspect Won’t Be Charged as ‘Enemy Combatant’

Yeah, it's not like he was a Tea Partier or a Pro-Life activist.

Afterward this still very dangerous puke will be tried by an ad hoc peoples' revolutionary court ~ probably about the time the regular day guards shift with the night crew, and some of the lifers are not on lockdown.

After all, prisoners have rights ~ one of them is to not be locked up with a cannibal. One of the others is to not be locked up with a mad bomber who blows children to pieces.

Sorry our judges and politicians aren't as advanced as prisoners in their understanding of justice.

It’s pretty simple. Try for treason, strip of American citizenship then off to gitmo or firing squad.

I wonder if they Mirandized him before they started questioning him. If not (as they said they wouldn’t), then any confession he made will not be admissible.

I have to say, I do agree that American citizens should not be tried as enemy combatants. However, he should be tried for Treason.

The criminal path leads to Saudi Arabia AND
the White House.

The DO”J” MUST insure that the path is NEVER followed.

This may be a good thing...the next time a Tea Party member lights up a cigarette within 2,000 yards of Blumenthal's office, he or she won't be charged as an enemy combatant.

“We will prosecute this terrorist through our civilians system of justice,” Carney told reporters.

Carney called an Islamic terrorist a terrorist??? Someone's gonna get a strongly worded memo!

I, for one, don’t want any Gov’t official having the power to decide if a particular crime warrants stripping someone of their rights as an American citizen.

The fact is these Chechen swine should have never been allowed into the country in the first place, but our PC, leftist Gov’t stupidly gave them American citizenship, so now we deal with them as American citizens.

He shouldn’t be charged as an enemy combatant. He is the enemy, but he’s a citizen.

Sorry, we don’t want to start a precedent of the White House/Congress/arm chair lawyers, deciding which U.S. citizens should become an enemy of the state. Today it could be a Muslim/Chechen, but tomorrow it could be a Christian/Texan.

We can fix this with a Republican administration.

I’m not sure I have an issue with this as he is an American citizen. The funny thing is that, according to Obama, we could drop him off somewhere and then use a drone to kill him and that’s okay...

Any reason why the FBI waited from April 18th to April 21st to search his dormitory room? Did Obama give the FBI orders to stay away for a few days so TSARNAEV’s handlers could remove incriminating evidence?

“”On April 21, 2013, the FBI searched DZHOKHAR TSARNAEV’s dormitory
room at 7341 Pine Dale Hall at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, pursuant to a search
warrant. The FBI seized from his room, among other things, a large pyrotechnic, a black jacket
and a white hat of the same general appearance as those worn by Bomber Two at the Boston
Marathon on April 15,2013, and BBs.””

“Although our investigation is ongoing, today’s charges bring a successful end to a tragic week for the city of Boston, and for our country,” Holder said in a statement issued this afternoon.

Interesting selection of words. Criminal negligence or conspiracy designed to facilitate political correctness, or political correctness used to cover criminal negligence and conspiracy.

So it's "all clear," eh? If so, then Boston Perp 2 can't rightly be held under the public safety exception.

All day we've been hearing "Boston officials" claim the brother perps "acted alone."

Does any rational person believe this? Even if the weight of evidence were leaning that way, could it be anything other than premature to announce such unlikely nonsense?

The administration is mad.

I’m sure terrorists everywhere are thinking — that was so freakin easy man, why did we wait so long.
