That’s change you can believe it, alright:
Attorney General Eric Holder said the White House is working with Congress on giving federal officials more flexibility in questioning terror suspects, calling it a “new priority” for President Barack Obama.
“We want the public safety exception to be consistent with the public safety concerns that we now have,” Holder said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program. The top U.S. law enforcement official earlier said on ABC’s “This Week” that Congress needs to give “serious consideration” to revising the guidelines.
The public safety exception lets law enforcement officers question suspects on potential threats before giving a “Miranda warning” advising them of their rights to remain silent and to have legal counsel.
Call me a paranoid, fortified-bunker-dwelling, locked-and-loaded anarcho-libertarian, but when they start using words like “flexibility” in regard to people’s rights, it sometimes ends with a bunch of naked guys piled up in a human pyramid.
