"Times Square Terrorist" Success Story

Prosecutors charged Faisal Shahzad, 30, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, with five counts, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and trying to kill and maim people within the United States. Before and after having his Miranda rights read to him, he talked and talked. Sang like a bird. Gave federal investigators all the information they wanted. "The FBI read Shahzad his constitutional rights after he provided information, and he continued to cooperate," FBI Deputy Director John Pistole said. Imagine that, with no illegal torture, without spying on American citizens, without destroying the Constitution. That's why the Regressives are so angry.

Regressive Senator John McCain of Arizona and Regressive NY Congressman Peter King were actually critical of the fact that he was Mirandized. Read this twice: "Did they Mirandize him? I know he's an American citizen, but still," said King.


Apparently these two Regressives have so much contempt for America, US laws and the justice system, they think they can actually decide which laws apply to whom. In addition, as Keith Olbermann notes, withholding Miranda Rights would precipitate a technicality that would allow Shahzad to go free.
