"Crotch Bomber"; Crime or Terror?
BLOG: Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, the alleged “crotch bomber,” is currently begin held as a criminal in Michigan’s prison system. Obama administration representatives are on record stating that NW flight 253 was not a “battle field” and that this is a “criminal” case. Therefore, Mutallab has been read his Miranda rights (as are his colleagues on and immediately off of foreign battle fields under the current, misguided administration) and his case is being treated as an unlawful act in the US criminal justice system. I believe he should be treated as the terrorist he obviously is. He should be undergoing interrogation by the FBI and CIA from Guantanamo (a perfect detention facility for War On Terror enemy combatants that should NOT be closing) so we can extract all the information we possibly can from him prior to adjudication of his case in a US military tribunal. Instead we are providing him, free of charge, lawyers and US Constitutional rights. When, at our highest office, ideology trumps logic, we are all in trouble. The Mutallab case is a timely example of why I devoted an entire chapter of Re-United States to address the issue of Military Commissions. MW
