It is now being reported the Boston bombing suspect was unnecessarily ‘Mirandized’ in the midst of the FBI interrogations from which the FBI was obtaining important intelligence re present and future terrorist activities. The question now is; did the attorney general’s Boston representative jump the gun by rushing a Federal Magistrate and lawyers to the suspects hospital room to ‘file a criminal complaint’ and ‘Mirandized’? By doing so it placed the suspect into civil proceedings which we find out is not a necessary decision at this time. It has effectively limited further FBI interrogation(s).

According to Fox News advisors, to include former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, there was no need for the rush to ‘mirandize’ on Monday. The FBI already has obtained sufficient ‘real’ evidence to convict. Further questioning would not have affected that outcome but would have provided further information for the safety of Americans.

Mukasey and other legal advisors agreed that the decision for Monday’s actions could not have been made by the local attorney general’s representative but had to come “from The top”.

Mukasey further related that the administration made the same error with the “shoe bomber” and obviously learned nothing from that incident. You be the judge.
