Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Wonít Be Tried As an Enemy Combatant
The indictment is still sealed, BBC reports, but the White House has announced that the 19 year-old surviving suspect of the Boston Marathon bombings has been charged, and wonít be tried as an enemy combatant.
The news probably comes as a disappointment to Republican hawks such as Sens. Ayotte, Graham, and McCain, who were calling for him to be designated as such.
Though much is still unknown, the decision to try the younger Tsarnaev in an ordinary criminal court seems like the right one. Though details are emerging about the brothersí radicalization, they donít seem to have any connection to other terrorists abroad, though some have tried to spin the elderís trip to Chechnya and Dagestan as evidence of a link. The senators could have said they support the enemy combatant designation in the event a link to Al Qaeda was found, but as Michael Tomasky points out, thatís not what they did.

Yeah, that Lindsey Graham was whining about that on the Sunday talk shows. He's an American and a crime committed here, it goes throught the justice system. Like it or not, he has rights.

the truth hurts doesn't it? No president, republican or democrat has control of someone's actions, of course security is definetly key in making it more difficult for terrorists and students who had performed massacres in school, stop blaming obama, again he has no control on what is on someone's mind to do such things.

New private rocket launches into orbit on maiden flight

A new commercial U.S. rocket soared into the Virginia sky Sunday (April 21) on a debut flight that paves the way for eventual cargo flights to the International Space Station for NASA.
The private Antares rocket, built by Orbital Sciences, is a two-stage booster designed to launch tons of supplies to the International Space Station aboard a new unmanned cargo ship called Cygnus.

So, they received political asylum; and then returned? Makes no sense. The whole point of asylum is that you must convince the US that you are in danger in your own country.
If they were part of a larger group, I hope the one caught alive is kept under guard 24/7; before the Russians kill him. Like they did Litvinyenko in London.
Not quite lily, when the USSR went out of business Russia survived but some other states/regions fell apart at the seams.

Our immigration policies suck__everyone knows that. Those with attorney's get in whether or not they're of good character or, cough, necessary (tech-med) workers. At the same time the brokeazz agri workers have to sneak back and forth to work for p-nuts.

Beck, Limbaugh, Dobbs and others have made so much noise and created so much hatred for Mexicans, Guatemalans and Hondurans during the past dozen years that most US citizens have forgotten that immigrants from elsewhere, particularly the Islamic world present a far greater danger in terms of job losses, civil disobedience and civil unrest.

It's illegal to try a US citizen as an enemy combatant Flacko.

The older bro, could have been tried that way but he's pushin up daisies.

Maybe you can get your congressman to waste a couple of billion $ getting new laws passed.

That would mean he was 7 years old when the family was given "asylum" , how do you return to a country that you ran away from by convincing the US that you are in danger? He's only 19, that means his parents left him here as a teenager. Haven't heard of either of them having a job. Strange story.
They commit this act and then have no money or escape plan?
The father returned for "health" problems--whatever sense that makes, and it was only the older brother who went back for six months of sleeping at his father's house, which would make more sense if he were the teenager. The one in custody was a lifeguard at Harvard, but other than winning the New England Golden Gloves and then training for a possible Olympic berth, I haven't heard any job description for the twenty-six-year-old. Somethings just don't seem to add up--maybe they were inspired by the new Kerri Russell series?
