AYFKM? John McCain’s Watching Your Back

Today’s AYFKM? Award goes to a current senator and former presidential candidate who thinks it’s a gimme to hold off on reading Miranda rights to the Times Square Bomber even though he is a naturalized American citizen.  Are we now going to get around following the rule of law by “delaying” the reading of rights to this joker but we Mirandize foreign nationals at the drop of a hat?  At what point do we stop bending the Constitution just a little bit to make things go our way?   Are you okay with the slippery slope being laid for all criminal cases?  If anything, this just proves the point that McCain truly does not have America’s back as we already know how this administration and a significant portion of congress feels about patriotic Americans that read the Constitution, own guns, and attend church.

McCain: ‘Serious mistake’ if car bombing suspect was Mirandized

It would have been a serious mistake to have read the suspect in the attempted Times Square car bombing his Miranda rights, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday.

McCain, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a longtime leading Republican on national security issues, said he expected the suspect in the case could face charges that might warrant a death sentence if convicted.

“Obviously that would be a serious mistake…at least until we find out as much information we have,” McCain said during an appearance on “Imus in the Morning” when asked whether the suspect, 30-year-old Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized American citizen from Pakistan.

“Don’t give this guy his Miranda rights until we find out what it’s all about,” McCain added during an appearance on the Imus show, which is broadcast by the Fox Business Network.

McCain’s remarks echo Republican complaints in the aftermath of the attempted bombing of a flight en route from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day, when Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the suspect in that case, was immediately Mirandized and given full criminal rights.

Republicans say that suspects like Abdulmutallab and potentially Shahzad should be classified as an “enemy combatant,” which gives authorities more leeway in seeking intelligence through interrogation and other methods.

As for my personal opinion of this bomber, does anybody really believe this guy is a foreign terrorist?

    What perfect timing, terrorist trained in Pakistan don’t screw up bombings, and Arizona’s Immigration law. All of this smacks of things planned and orchestrated by Obozo to create chaos and one crisis after another. A Russian friend warned me that this would be how the Communist would operate in America.He said that Obonzo and his minions would plan and orchestrate one crisis after another to misdirect the attention of Americans citizens while slowly tightening their slimy tentacles around our country. John McCain watching our back is like the fox watching the chicked coup, he is one of them.

  • Practical Madman -

    “THEY” gained so much more by NOT blowing up things (car bombs, planes, etc.)

    1) “Proof” that there are still “terrorists” (yes there are, and they are called “politicians”).

    2) Questioning of the “rights” of “terrorists” (then the follow up that anyone that does not believe what THEY say is a terrorist)

    3) Proof” that vigilant citizens ratting on each other and watching each other’s every move is the solution (soon there will be rewards for turning your neighbor in).

    4) Proof that the government has our backs covered (yea, right!)

    We are witnessing a controlled demolition of our way of life. Ass is by design for the benefit of the powers that be. We are game pieces on THEIR monopoly board game. Every politician says what needs to be said to further control and confuse us, or they get taken out of the game.

  • I’m going to predict what that A..hole Nobama will do next November. When the idiots in D.C. are voted out, ( and they will be) Nobama will declare “Martial Law”, there by nullifying the election, which will keep these idiots in office, and keeping the new politicians from being sworn in in January. He will do whatever it takes to stay in power.
