On April 25 - Thursday evening - American icon and humble hero George W Bush took one small step for man, one slip-and-fall for humanity - as he re-entered a spotlight until-recently blissful to have been abandoned by him, for the dedication of his presidential library. Put aside for the moment that having an actual structure that houses things you read dedicated to him is like honouring Chris Christie with a gluten-free restaurant or naming a Bar Mitzvah after Vladimir Zhirinovsky. Hell, I half expected him to don his trusty flight suit and declare "all major combat operations over in Iraq", you know, just for the memories.
So it wasn't the Obama administration who insisted on someone reading Dzokhar Tsaraev his rights. It was a federal judge.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday declared that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was at fault for failing to prevent last week's bombing in Boston.
Former CIA Deputy Director Phillip Mudd on Sunday told Fox News that Boston bombing suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev should be charged as a murderer because the crime looked more like the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado than an attack planned by al Qaeda.
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) doesn't think an American citizen should be entitled to constitutional protections.
Lots of relief for the residents of Watertown, MA after finally getting the news that the Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzokhar Tsarnaev had been arrested and taken into custody. After what they experienced on their streets this Friday, this is nice to see.
Lindsey Graham's shameful call to hold an American citizen as an 'enemy combatant' just feeds the paranoia of gun nuts and militia members.
