    In a story by Stephen F. Hayes in the Weekly Standard, The Obama Administration has ordered the FBI and CIA to give terrorists anywhere in the world the Rights of an American Citizen, they must be read their Miranda rights.

    You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to speak to an attorney, and to have an attorney present during any questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be provided for you at government expense.

    QUESTION?
    Has he turned foreign terrorists & enemy combatants into American citizens on the battlefield? Are we the American taxpayer to pay for these enemy combatants attorneys?

    Obama is on video during the campaign season specifically stating that HE WOULD NEVER DO THIS. Is this story true?

    So...we're essentially declaring all of the US enemies are US citizens now, and have the right, if they are ever accused of a crime, to free legal counsel!

    Wahoo!

    Hard to tell, the original story looks awfully suspicious because it doesn't name any current officials confirming or denying it.... in the story we have ...

    • Rogers, a former FBI special agent and U.S. Army officer
    • according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee (unnamed)
    • A lawyer who has worked on detainee issues for the U.S. government (unnamed)

    And this which may or may not be in the context of the subject of the article.
    "But Republicans on Capitol Hill are not happy. “When they mirandize a suspect, the first thing they do is warn them that they have the 'right to remain silent,’” says Representative Pete Hoekstra, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. “It would seem the last thing we want is Khalid Sheikh Mohammed or any other al-Qaeda terrorist to remain silent. Our focus should be on preventing the next attack, not giving radical jihadists a new tactic to resist interrogation--lawyering up.”

    I would say this would only stand to lay the ground work to try these folks in US court more easily. We don't want to get one of these guys on trial and have a Miranda issue.

    Wouldn't be an issue, individuals classified as unlawful/enemy combatants aren't afforded any constitutional rights anyways, thus they're not entitled to a trial in civil courts. They'd be tried by a military court as directed by the UCMJ (if I'm not mistaken).
