America has two choices when it comes to dealing with terrorists caught before they are able to carry out their suicidal missions. We can either turn them over to the military and allow them to interrogate them in a manner sufficient to make them give up the information they know, which could prevent future attacks and ultimately save innocent lives.
Or we can use the approach that Obama and the Left prefer, treating enemy combatants as common criminals, reading them Miranda rights, giving them attorneys who will advise them to shut their mouths immediately, as well as the full rights of an American citizen, which in itself is ridiculous. Why should a foreigner who enters our country to do us harm receive the same rights as any individual born as an American citizen?
In electing President Obama, Americans made the second choice, and now we must all suffer the consequences because the Obama worshippers got caught up in falling for fancy rhetoric with no substance.
Read about how the liberal approach to dealing with captured enemy combatants is a complete failure, via Jihad Watch:
Flight 253 jihadist was "singing like a canary" until he was read his rights like a civilian criminal
"Suicidal. 'Detroit bomber "singing like a canary" before arrest,' by Philip Sherwell in the Telegraph, January 9 (thanks to Banafsheh):
'President Barack Obama is under fire over claims that the Christmas Day underwear bomber was "singing like a canary" until he was treated as an ordinary criminal and advised of his right to silence.
The chance to secure crucial information about al-Qaeda operations in Yemen was lost because the Obama administration decided to charge and prosecute Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as an ordinary criminal, critics say. He is said to have reduced his co-operation with FBI interrogators on the advice of his government-appointed defence counsel.
The potential significance became chillingly clear this weekend when it was reported that shortly after his detention, he boasted that 20 more young Muslim men were being prepared for similar murderous missions in the Yemen.
The lawyer for the 23-year-old Nigerian entered a formal not guilty plea on Friday to charges that he tried to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on December 25 - even though he reportedly admitted earlier that he was trained and supplied with the explosives sewn into his underwear by al-Qaeda in the Arab state.
"He was singing like a canary, then we charged him in civilian proceedings, he got a lawyer and shut up," Slade Gorton, a member of the 9/11 Commission that investigated the Sept 2001 terror attacks on the US, told The Sunday Telegraph.
"I find it incomprehensible that this administration is treating terrorism as a law enforcement issue. The president has finally said that we are at war with al-Qaeda. Well, if this is a war, then Abdulmutallab should be treated as a combatant not a criminal."...'
Not with this President in power."
Leave it to the Brits to accurately report this info. American Pravda once again asleep at the wheel. They wouldn't want to report anything that could do damage to their young president whom they all worship.
