It's confusing to hear both sides of the "Miranda Rights visa-via U.S. citizen alleged bomber" issue.
On the one hand is this "...but he's a U.S. citizen so the alledged living Boston Bomber is not an enemy combatant, so his case falls under the awning of the Federal criminal justice system. On the other hand is this "...but he aligned himself with Al-Q groups (even with his brother who was reportedly radicalized during a trip to Russia), and in doing so sides with the enemy of the war we're in, so because certain statues apply for times of war, he is an enemy combatant."
Here's the question for this thread: How far does a U.S. citizen have to go to "side with the enemy?" If the brothers were aligned with the group called Caucausus Emerit (do we really have strong evidence of this yet?) then they have aligned themselves with the enemy...right?
Yesterday, the "white hat" bomber was read his Miranda rights and will be treated in the Federal criminal justice system, so that's that. But the difficult question remains as to just how far does a U.S. citizen has to go with terrorist activity before he/she is considered a turncoat-enemy combatant, especially if the terrorist activity is NOT EXECUTED FROM foreign soil, but rather EXECUTED FROM U.S. soil? Discuss...
