Obama admin halts questioning to Boston bombing suspect
Lawmakers are demanding to know why Tsarnaev, who has confessed to being involved in the planting of two bombs near the Boston Marathon finish line, was read his Miranda rights in the middle of his interrogation.
Tsarnaev had been under interrogation for about 16 hours in his hospital room before a magistrate and representatives from the U.S. Attorney’s Office entered the room and read him his Miranda rights. He then stopped talking, according to sources briefed on the interrogation.
Lawmakers have called for Tsarnaev to be considered an enemy combatant, but the Obama administration opted to try him in civilian criminal court proceedings instead.
Last month you people were all in a tizzy about Rand Paul's little filibuster about the potential that Obama would unilaterally declaring American citizens enemy combatants and strip them of their rights. Now you want Obama to unilaterally declare an American citizen an enemy combatant and strip him of his rights.
