Miranda Rights

Of all the bizarre non-issues beloved of right-wing wind bags, this business of not reading Miranda rights to terrorist suspects is about the stupidest. Terrorists want to be treated like soldiers; why give them what they want? Why not treat them like criminals, which humiliates them and actually gives us a way to lock them up, or execute them?

Generally the right wing is on the side of law enforcement professionals, and in this case they should do what they are always telling the ACLU to do: shut up and let the cops do their job.
