He’s Such a Nice Boy Who Blew Up All Those Runners

April 29th, 2013 - 9:06 am

From an interview with Ralph Peters:

Q: You’re suggesting that from an investigative standpoint, the wrong brother died in the battle with law enforcement?

A: Very much so. (Dzhokhar Tsarnaev) may know some things, but his brother (Tamerlan) was the key guy. But (even with him), when you take these low-level terrorists — and these guys were low level — when you take the guys who actually do the deed, they often don’t have much for you.

Q: What else can you predict about the case?

A: It’s going to cost us a lot of money to try him and incarcerate him. And as a prisoner, this guy is going to get better medical care than many poor native-born Americans. Everyone is obsessed about the rights of these prisoners. What about the rights of the people who had their legs blown off? How much have we heard about them? It’s all about how sweet this kid was. I was just reading another piece in The Washington Post about how everybody liked him so much. Jesus — or Allah, take your pick — give me a (expletive) break.

Bill Whittle was right; this guy needs to be tried for treason. He took a loyalty oath when he was granted his citizenship, and then broke it in the most dramatic way. If we’re not going to try citizen-terrorists as enemy combatants (and we shouldn’t be doing that), then we need to try them for treason. Because if killing Americans in league — even a tenuous league — with foreign nationals at war with this country isn’t “aid and comfort,” then I don’t know what is.

What does it take to be charged with treason these days?

I'm serious. I'd really like to know. Short of standing directly in front of the President and shouting "YOU SUCK!!", what would it take?

Treason consists of making war against the United States or giving aid and comfort to an enemy. Planting explosives is making war against the U.S. So is shouting Allah hu Akbar and shooting 13 soldiers at a military base. So is shooting at an Army recruiting center in Little Rock. Treason has a death penalty and has since 1789.

Death penalty, yeah.
Heard of Taliban John Walker Lindh? Where's his treason conviction?

I wouldn't mind a life without parole sentence, provided we also revoke his 8 month old US citizenship.

Nor would I mind his parents visiting him in prison. Problem being, dad is too ill to travel, and nutjob mom has a felony shoplifting charge and may be a national security threat. I'm sure if we explained the situation, the kind and tenderhearted Vladimir Putin will allow loser #2 to serve his life without parole sentence in a Russian prison. Possibly one near Beslan, where, I'm given to understand, they have experience with Chechen Islamic terrorists.

"He took a loyalty oath when he was granted his citizenship,..."
Which country's loyalty when you are allowed to have multiple citizenships from other countries?

Treason? So quaint.

Haven't you heard, the American leftists only regretted that they couldn't hang this one on the gun toting clingers? Anyway, it's much more difficult to convict a treasonist than a terrorist, and the punishments are probably the same. There ain't no death penalty for treason any more.

Oh, what happens to that job related postal at Fort Hood? More people were killed, and it didn't even rise up to be called an act of terror.
