Attorney General blasted for wanting to ‘kill’ Miranda rights

Justice delayed is justice denied: Attorney General Eric Holder says that the U.S. needs to examine whether the current rules regarding Miranda warnings give law enforcement agents the “necessary flexibility” when dealing with terrorism cases, suggesting that regulators consider a longer delay before American citizens must be read their rights. “If we are going to have a system that is capable of dealing, in a public safety context, with this new threat, I think we have to give serious consideration to at least modifying that public safety exception.”

The soldier - civilian spectrum

Okay, here is the deal, are terrorists soldiers or civilian? The Nazis on the field were not read their miranda rights. They were captured, and when the war was over they were released. Suppose they didn't have uniform on, suppose they were united in representing an international actor that was not a country. Based on those two differences alone, would that paramilitary group that used violence should have been read their rights? I'm just saying, we live in vague times. It's easy to treat these people like a criminal organization without asking questions. It's interesting though that Holder said what he said. It's something that usually one would hear from a republican. Now, you might say "hey, it's not about republicans or democrats, it's about power." But the difference is that republicans would support a policy like the one Holder suggests, but he would alienate his own base!
