A terrorist, never before in this country, not a citizen of this country, attempts to suicide bomb the plane he is in over our country, and our illustrious President lets him “lawyer up”?
Abdulmutallab remains in a Detroit area prison and, after initial debriefings by the FBI, has restricted his cooperation since securing a defense attorney, according to federal officials. Authorities are holding out hope that he will change his mind and cooperate with the probe, the officials said. (Emphasis added)
Are these people, supposedly here to protect us, complete and utter idiots? Are they insane?
Take the guy and interrogate him, firmly, with pain, using any means to unravel the network of terrorists he so recently left. Slather his wounds with pig fat, make him lie with dogs, I don’t care – just make him TALK.
This guy has NO Constitutional rights, and IMHO no human rights, he forfeited them when he tried to blow up 300 men, woman and children out of the sky.
That our President doesn’t intervene and say “habius whattis? – uh uh brother, that dude is going to our little part of Cuba for some talkie time” makes him and his Presidency a dangerous joke.
Maybe narcissism will save the day… I suspect that once Obama gets wind of how much Abdulmutallab is hurting him, he may play tough with the guy.
