"Pretty Please": Obama's New Interrogation Orders

This is utterly insane.

The Obama Administration has ordered the FBI and CIA to inform terrorists overseas that they "have the right to remain silent" before probing them for information to save American lives.

According to Weekly Standard report by Stephen F.
Hayes, a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee has revealed that "the Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan."

For openers, Constitutional rights inhere only to citizens of the United States--not to enemy combatants bound and determined to kill US soldiers (or other US citizens.)

This is an excellent way to demoralize or alienate US soldiers and to lose wars. It serves no national interest whatsoever, and it shows that Obama and Holder are deluded in their assessment of the enemy. Stark, raving deluded.
