It did not take long for the editors of the War Street Journal to serve as the media mouthpieces for John McCain and Lindsey Graham:

A row has broken out over whether the Obama Administration is violating the legal due process of Boston terror suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by not reading him his Miranda rights before questioning. The more relevant question for the safety of the U.S. homeland is why the Administration has declined to designate him as a terrorist enemy combatant.

Lest one thinks that the WSJ is claiming this is an exceptional situation, think again:

The Boston bombing also ought to chasten Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee and other libertarians who keep insisting that the U.S. homeland is not part of the terror battlefield.

“It’s different overseas than it will be here. It’s different in the battlefield than it will be here,” Mr. Paul told Fox News earlier this year. “Which gets precisely to the argument I have with some other Republicans who say, well, ‘the battlefield is everywhere, there is no limitation.’ President Obama says this. Some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations and the laws of war apply. It’s important to know that the law of war that they’re talking about means no due process.”

Boylston Street sure looked like a battlefield on Monday, and so did Watertown on Thursday night. The artificial distinction is Mr. Paul’s focus on geography. The vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals, who deserve due process protections, and enemy combatants at war with the U.S., wherever they are.

We need to understand what these people are saying. Federal law must assume that every inch of continental U.S. soil is a battlefield in which the rules of battle apply and that due process of law goes out the window. A permanent battlefield is not a place where people can enjoy any freedoms at all except for those temporary refuges that come about when government lifts an order for a short time.

As for anything like a free economy, forget it. A nation under permanent martial law — and that is what the WSJ really is advocating — is a nation of drones serving a governmental master.

“We will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice,” Carney said.

Obama called this an act of terrorism.

The question is: "did we suffer a terrorist attack officially?"

Why this is important is because Obama declared the war on terror over in 2010. He went to great lengths to keep the Benghazi attack labeled as a spontaneous uprising caused by a video.

Would this mean the "war on terror" is back on? Or did Obama lie?

What is it Obama?

The first words out of Obama's mouth after the Benghazi attack was that it was a terrorist attack. Watch the video, listen to what he said. It was the rest of the clowns in the White House that claimed it was because of the video. But the first words out of Obama was that it was a terrorist attack.

Well, I must be the ultimate dumbbell. Here's the official statement.

I could not hear Obama use the words "terrorist attack" as his first words.

At 0:26 Obama uses the word "attack."

At 4:18 Obama uses the words "act of terror".

I must've missed it.

But I bet you can point it out without blinking an eye.

Where did I miss it?

Surely what you wrote is true:
The first words out of Obama's mouth after the Benghazi attack was that it was a terrorist attack. Watch the video, listen to what he said. It was the rest of the clowns in the White House that claimed it was because of the video. But the first words out of Obama was that it was a terrorist attack.
Yet I can't find where Obama said the words "terrorist attack".

Oh wait, maybe you have that video tucked away with the "FactChecking you are doing on Obama's speech".

PsychoZ, man, just for once in your life, be honest.

Look at my profile...it clearly states "right wing wack job". I'm too far right for the GOP...I'm so far right, I can't even make left turns.

There's no pretense about me. I am who I say I am. Nothing more, nothing less.

PsychoZ, just admit you're an Obama shill and be done with it. Don't pretend to be middle road and attack the right and defend the left.

If you have something to say against the right, say it without the deceit.

The truth shall set you free.
