The White House has made it official: Suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzokhar Tsarnaev, a naturalized U.S. citizen, will not be tried as an enemy combatant by a military commission but will be tried as a terrorist in civilian court.
“This is absolutely the right way to go and the appropriate way to go,” said Press Secretary Jay Carney.
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) disagrees, saying yesterday that “there’s so many questions unanswered. There are so many potential links to terrorism here. Also, the battlefield was now in the United States. So, I believe he is an enemy combatant.”
