Preisdent Obama's plan for Al Qaeda Jihadists determined to destroy America is to treat them as common criminals; not combatants in a war against us. Reportedly, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has been read his rights in his hospital bed and has now "lawyer-ed" up. This means we can't question him about his methods, accomplices and ties to Al Qaeda. Rep. Peter King is calling for Abdulmutallab to be tried by military tribunal instead of a civilian court.
