Report: US Now Reading Miranda Rights To Battlefield Detainees In Afghanistan

Because engaging in combat operations on foreign soil is the same as stealing a car or writing a bad check in the US.

Welcome to Obama's brave new world.

“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.

War's over kids, nothing to see here. Just send in the cops and it'll all be good.

Read the whole sad story at The Weekly Standard. It's absolutely disgusting.

People used to say, 'no prisoners, just shoot 'em'. That was a bad idea because we might get valuable intel. Clearly, most of these jihadi scum are going to exercise 'their right' to remain silent. Prisoners aren't so attractive anymore, are they?
