Tick Tock.....

A Good Friend from the Stoop came up with the following scenario:

The terrorist that tried to blow up 300 civilians on Christmas day (and who violated just about every major rule of war ever created) was Mirandized and indicted in federal court instead of being treated like an enemy combatant. As Spock from Star Treck would likely say, "Logic dictates" that in the future any terrorist who intends to commit mass murder will not be treated as an enemy combatant, but will be arrested and given all Constitutional rights of a US citizen. Now I pose the following scenario:

Terrorist arrested in New York City with the nuclear trigger.
FBI: "Where's the bomb!!!?"
Terrorist: "I want my lawyer."
FBI: "Uhmmmm"

The nightmare continues.....
