The title of a recently released Al-Jazeera article is “Boston bombing suspect charged” (Web-site/URL: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/2013/04/2013422171313409856.html).
“White House says surviving suspect in Boston bombings WILL NOT be tried as an enemy combatant” and of course, as we know, many REPUBLICAN lawmakers ARE NOT happy about this as they still think that they have an advantage when it comes to fighting terrorism/terrorists.
“US officials have brought charges against Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzohkhar Tsarnaev while he lay in his hospital bed, a federal court official said”.
According to Gary Wente, “circuit executive for the US Courts for the First Circuit, who said that a magistrate judge was present when Tsarnaev was charged at his bed in Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital on Monday (April 22, 2013)”, “There has been a sealed complaint filed“.
“He was charged with USING A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION and one count of MALICIOUS DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY RESULTING IN DEATH“. Of course as we know, “weapons of mass destruction” is the faulty premise that former president GEORGE W. BUSH used to take the United States into war with IRAQ in 2003.
“Officials say Tsarnaev and his older brother and suspected co-conspirator, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, set off the twin explosions at the marathon one week ago (April 15, 2013), killing three people and injuring more than 180 others”.
“Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remained unable to speak with a gunshot wound to the throat, and he was expected face separate state charges in the fatal shooting of a university police officer”.
“on Sunday (April 21, 2013)”, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis told CNN: “There have been widely published reports that he is [communicating silently]. I WOULDN’T dispute that, but I DON’T have any specific information on that myself. We’re VERY ANXIOUS to talk to him and the investigators will be doing that AS SOON AS POSSIBLE“, RELATIVELY SPEAKING. We all know how “soon” POLITICIANS do things: NOT “soon” AT ALL. They always DRAG THEIR FEET.
“The White House said that the surviving suspect in the Boston bombings would not be treated as an “enemy combatant” but would be tried through the US CIVILIAN justice system” and of course we know many Republicans ARE NOT happy about that because Republicans still think that THEY have a POLITICAL advantage on terrorism-related issues.
“following calls from some Republicans for 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to be granted the same status as “War on Terror” detainees”, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: “He WILL NOT be treated as an enemy combatant“, again to the chagrin of many Republicans. “We will prosecute this terrorist through our CIVILIAN system of justice“, arguing that US law prohibited a US citizen being tried in the military court system”.
“Carney said that since the September 11, 2001 attacks the US government had repeatedly and successfully used civilian courts to try terror suspects”. “The system has repeatedly proven that it CAN successfully handle the threat we continue to face“. Again, of course, this is open to INTERPRETATIONS(Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
Finally, Davis finished off: “I AM CONFIDENT that they (the Tsarnaev) were the two major actors in the violence that occurred” obviously
