"If you're attacking your fellow Americans in an act of war you lose the rights that come with citizenship," Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, an independent, told reporters.
Lieberman said he was trying to amend an old US law "that says that if an American citizen is found to be fighting in the military of a nation with whom we are at war, they lose their citizenship."
"I hate the gooks. I will hate them as long as I live."

Do you not know that not reading them their rights is a common police/investigation tactic?
I've had friends who were questioned before in relation to a robbery in the neighborhood (they just happened to be a black guy in a black shirt and jeans like the suspect)
He was not read his rights, because he was just taken down to be questioned. He even asked if he was being arrested, the officer said no, in fact, you can get your own ride down to the station if you wish. He decided to just go with the officer and make his own life easier. Yea, it was a a hassle, but legal as I udnerstand the law.
It seems like McCain was just saying:I hope they don't give him an early out.
Of course he has to be read his rights...if not he gets off pretty much.
Nearly all the inmates transferred to Terre Haute are Muslims. A second facility has been set up at Marion, Ill., where the inmates again are mostly Muslim but also include a sprinkling of animal rights and environmental activists, among them Daniel McGowan, who was charged with two arsons at logging operations in Oregon. His sentence was given “terrorism enhancements” under the Patriot Act. Amnesty International has called the Marion prison facility “inhumane.” All calls and mail—although communication customarily is off-limits to prison officials—are monitored in these two Communication Management Units. Communication among prisoners is required to be only in English. The highest-level terrorists are housed at the Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility, known as Supermax, in Florence, Colo., where prisoners have almost no human interaction, physical exercise or mental stimulation, replicating the conditions for most of those held at Guantánamo. If detainees are transferred from Guantánamo to the prison in Thomson, Ill., they will find little change. They will endure Guantánamo-like conditions in colder weather.

The fact that top Republican leaders speaking out that he shouldn't be read his rights is just absurd.

"He is a citizen of the United States, so I say we uphold the laws and the Constitution on citizens… If you are a citizen, you obey the law and follow the Constitution. He has all the rights under the Constitution… We don't shred the Constitution when it is popular. We do the right thing."
