This is why you don't treat those you are fighting in a war as criminals

Abdulmutallab might know the identities of those who he trained with. That could be very valuable in stopping similar attacks. He probably knows the location of the training base. He probably knows the identity of those doing the training. However, Abdulmutallab is lawyered up and not talking. Fine you can't use the information that you get from interrogations to prosecute the guy. But can't you still interrogate him to get valuable intelligence information? See this in the third to last paragraph in a Washington Post article.

Abdulmutallab remains in a Detroit area prison and, after initial debriefings by the FBI, has restricted his cooperation since securing a defense attorney, according to federal officials. Authorities are holding out hope that he will change his mind and cooperate with the probe, the officials said. . . .

You can't make this stuff up! Are they out of their freakin minds? I hope war and disease will end forever and cold fusion will supply all our energy needs.

The Bush method of changing a terrorist's mind was more effective--to put it mildly. But the upside is, Obama really cares about American constitutional rights, so much so that he applies them to anyone, even to foreign terrorists engaged in Jihad against Americans. That's why he is raming Obamacare up America's rear end while foreign enemy combatants get Miranda rights. Obamacare perfectly displays Obama's deep respect for the American constitution.
