    Faisal Shahzad Was Read Miranda Rights After Initial Questioning - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said this morning it would be a "mistake" to read the 30-year-old naturalized American citizen his Miranda rights, which inform a suspect of their right to avoid self-incrimination.

    "Don't give this guy his Miranda rights until we find out what it's all about," McCain said on a radio show this morning.

    More evidence that senility should be an automatic disqualification for any elected office.

    As senile as he is, I can't imagine him doing any worse than the Boyking.

    He was on the Imus show wasn't he? He should heed Imus' oft given advice,

    'Just get out.' ...as should Imus for that matter.

    McCain wanted him treated as an "enemy combatant" which gives authorities more leeway in questioning him. However, it sounded like he couldn't way to tell authorities everything he knew.

    Yes. Heaven forbid we not read Miranda rights. How on earth would we ever convict him unless he gives us tons of statements incriminating himself? I mean it's not like we have him on camera or eye witnesses or anything of the sort.

    And it's not like we need intelligence from him for national security purposes that have nothing to do with a criminal trial.

    Miranda Rights have nothing to do with the Constitution, nor does a lack of having them read prevent convictions or a person's ability to exercise those rights.

    But I suppose you just presume people are stupid.
