Boston bomb suspect will not be designated an ‘enemy combatant’

• Jeremy Herb and Amie Parnes

The suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was read his Miranda rights on Monday after the White House decided not to try him as an enemy combatant.

White House press secretary Jay Carney argued the White House could gain intelligence from 19-year-old bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev without military detention, pointing to previous terror suspects who have been prosecuted in federal court.

The “system has repeatedly proven that it can successfully handle the threat” of terrorists, said Carney, citing the trials of Faisal Shahzad, who attempted to bomb Times Square in New York, and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried to blow up a flight bound for Detroit with explosives hidden in his underwear.
