    Question: Why didn't we see an effort to keep terrorist suspects from being read their rights when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, that we see now with the capturing of Faisal Shahzad? Wasn't McVeigh just as much a threat to us as Shahzad? Could this be the reason?:
    He looks like us:

    He doesn't:

    It's the only reasonable explanation. Either that or certain politicians are just trying to cast doubt on President Obama's handling of Shahzad. Look at the shoe bomber..He was read his rights without any objection from the right. So it's either racism or blatant hypocrisy.

    So I assume you are going to go with the "blatant hypocrisy" choice? Thanks for answering.

    Right wing idiots don't realize that if you don't read him his rights, nothing he says can be used in courts. Been that way for 50 years and they stll don't get it

    The argument would be: 'he looks American.'

    they don't care... they don't want him in court. they want him tortured and sent to gitmo....

    unless of course baby bush's people got him, like richard reid, then they could read him miranda warnings and try him in a U.S. court.

    buncha lying 'tards.

    I'm going with the "you're a blatant fuckwit" response.

    Thanks for playing.
