…the Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan, according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. “The administration has decided to change the focus to law enforcement. Here’s the problem. You have foreign fighters who are targeting US troops today — foreign fighters who go to another country to kill Americans. We capture them and they’re reading them their rights — Mirandizing these foreign fighters,” says Representative Mike Rogers, who recently met with military, intelligence and law enforcement officials on a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan.
Leftists do not think we are in a war. It’s all some regrettable misunderstanding. If America would just give up its capitalist imperialist foreign policy, then we could get the rest of the world to like us. Then terrorists would lose the support of the Arab “man on the street.”
In the meantime, I pity the folks at the Onion. How do they compete with the real life self-satire that is the Obama administration? Last year we were all joking that if Obama was elected, we would end up reading terrorists their Miranda rights. Last year’s joke is this year’s news.
