Obama Wants to Treat Terrorists Caught on Battlefield as Criminals

The Obama Administration has ordered FBI agents to read terrorists caught in Afghanistan their Miranda Rights. I guess Obama doesn't want them opening their mouths and telling us the location of other terrorists unless their lawyer is in approval. The Weekly Standard reported:
The Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan, according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. “The administration has decided to change the focus to law enforcement. Here’s the problem. You have foreign fighters who are targeting US troops today – foreign fighters who go to another country to kill Americans. We capture them…and they’re reading them their rights – Mirandizing these foreign fighters,” says Representative Mike Rogers, who recently met with military, intelligence and law enforcement officials on a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan.
