Would we have learned about the plot to blow up LA if this idiotic Obama Miranda policy had been in effect?

Question by friend to all: Would we have learned about the plot to blow up LA if this idiotic Obama Miranda policy had been in effect?

When 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad was captured on March 1, 2003, he was not cooperative. “I’ll talk to you guys after I get to New York and see my lawyer,” he said, according to former CIA Director George Tenet.

Of course, KSM did not get a lawyer until months later, after his interrogation was completed, and Tenet says that the information the CIA obtained from him disrupted plots and saved lives. “I believe none of these successes would have happened if we had had to treat KSM like a white-collar criminal — read him his Miranda rights and get him a lawyer who surely would have insisted that his client simply shut up,” Tenet wrote in his memoirs.

If Tenet is right, it’s a good thing KSM was captured before Barack Obama became president. For, 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, according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. “The administration has decided to change the focus to law enforcement. Here’s the problem. You have foreign fighters who are targeting US troops today — foreign fighters who go to another country to kill Americans. We capture them and they’re reading them their rights — Mirandizing these foreign fighters,” says Representative Mike Rogers, who recently met with military, intelligence and law enforcement officials on a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan.

Not Right

Rogers, a former FBI special agent and U.S. Army officer, says the Obama administration has not briefed Congress on the new policy. “I was a little surprised to find it taking place when I showed up because we hadn’t been briefed on it, I didn’t know about it. We’re still trying to get to the bottom of it, but it is clearly a part of this new global justice initiative.”
Edward, because of jake attitudes like yours we didn’t stop 9/11. We had some key intelligence, but fops like you tripped us up, and prevented it from being run to ground.
Which LA plot. eh? The one you know about which KSM participated in planning and/or maybe another one you haven’t heard about. We did get more intelligence from KSM than you have heard, at least that is what I understood Dick Cheney to have said.

Best answer:

Answer by Edward
You mean the LA plot that was broken up in Februrary 2002 via good old fashioned non-torture investigation a full 13 months BEFORE KSM was captured?

EDIT: To milcollector – you mean the plot of one moron trucker from Ohio to destroy the Brooklyn Bridge by cutting the support towers with a blow torch? Yes, that one was clearly an evil genius…

    All sorts of things… AFTER the fact of course…
    Miranda on the Battlefield… yeesh… maybe we should just have our hands tied behind our back…

  • milcollector

    No nor the plot to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge.
    Don’t be fooled though the way obama has flipped on all of the issues the military and the CIA have lost respect for him as Commander in Chief and will disregard his agenda,,,,they are sworn to protect Americans and that is what they will do.

    Either the US believes in law and order or it doesn’t. As soon as you descend that slippery slope of presuming guilt, torturing suspects, etc, then the US ceases to be the land of the free and the terrorists will have won. Obama understands that; Bush/Cheney did not and hence you have the Patriot Act that curtails US citizen liberties. Democracy and freedom come at a price and part of that price is standing behind things you will not do, no mater what the lost expediency. Law enforcement just has to step up its game to gather intelligence and still respect civil rights – or do you think the Constitution is just a piece of paper?

    what I think is amazing……you nimrods still believe that 911 was a terrorist attack!…sorry youve been set up!……oh well maybe when you are in concentration camps you’ll believe me!

    Yes. But they successfully foiled Rush’s attempt to seize control of the Republican national committee chair. Once they get Rush under control, dealing with Iran, No Korea, Putin, and other terrorists will be child’s play.

    “we” did not stop 9/11 because IT WAS AN INSIDE JOB….this question is nothing more than corporate propaganda….You use 9/11 to justify your murderous behavior….unnecessary wars, torture, war crimes, and ultimately, crimes against humanity. Eventually there will be a heavy price.
