After the early morning arrest of the Time Square car bomb suspect, Faisal Shahzad, more details are coming in [see this morning’s earlier post]. This New York Post video provides a quick recap.
The media seems to be paying close attention to the fact that Faisal Shahzad is a naturalized U.S. citizen. Shahzad being a naturalized U.S. Citizen does raise the Miranda Rights issue once again. John McCain has already spoken up on this topic.
"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.[...]
"There's probably about 350 different charges he's guilty off -- attempted acts of terror against the united States, attempted murder," said McCain, cautioning that he's not privy to the charges with which Shahzad might be charged. "I'm sure there's a significant number to warrant the death penalty."
Even though Shahzad is claiming he acted alone in the attack, McCain might be out of luck here. Shahzad is a naturalized U.S. citizen and unlike the Underpants Bomber, Shahzad actually does have our Constitutional rights. The left is already beating back McCain’s comments (see these Memeorandum discussions here and here). For a lively discussion on this topic, look at this video with Glenn Beck and Judge Andrew Napolitiano on Fox and Friends this morning.
