Umar - Barack - Terrorist Rights - And Other Stupid Things

Al qaeda terrorist Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, attempts to meet his 72 virgins aboard Northwest Airline Flight 253 shortly before that plane lands in Detroit in route from Amsterdam. Fortunately for passengers aboard flight 253 the bomb strapped to his leg was a fizzle and not a bang. Umar (raghead) Mutallab, was subdued by fellow passengers immediately following the small smoking pop. This was probably the roughest treatment he will have from this point on from the Obama Justice Department.

One can easily picture Omar requesting an attorney at this point and Eric Holders justice department quickly complying, even though this foreigner was on an international flight. He will be afforded all the constitutional rights you and I have including avoiding questioning without his attorney being present. He undoubtedly possesses a treasure trove of information that would thwart future attacks, but this information will not be obtained by the polite agents in Obama's FBI. Just think if Bush was still president, this guy would have been escorted from the plane by the FBI, then turned over to the CIA or some group like it and immediately got a swift punch in the gut once inside that black SUV at the airport and within 24-48 hours we would know what he had for lunch a month ago. Not now, not under Obama, not under an administration that believes in the rights of a foreign terrorist more than the safety of its own citizens. Valuable information could be forthcoming, but not this time, unless this guy just loves to hear himself talk.

Obama will undoubtedly hold a news conference in the next few days where he will say the suspect is talking and useful information is being obtained. He will not cite what information calling that classified. Bush would say the same in similar circumstances, the difference being that while Obama's primary concern seems to be the rights of the terrorist and Bush's is the safety of Americans. Bush had faults and did some things wrong, while Obama has faults and does nothing right.
