Proposal Would Extend Pre-hearing Detention, Withhold Miranda Warnings in Terror Cases

It's the Obusha 'Friday Night Extra-constitutional Bad News Dump' -- so big, the dumping actually crossed into Saturday morning! Proposal Would Extend Pre-hearing Detention, Withhold Miranda Warnings in Terror Cases 14 Mar 2010 President Obama’s legal advisers are considering asking Congress to allow the government to detain terrorism suspects longer after their arrests before presenting them to a judge for an initial hearing, according to administration officials familiar with the discussions. If approved, the idea to delay hearings would be attached to broader legislation to allow interrogators to withhold Miranda warnings from terrorism suspects for lengthy periods, as Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. proposed last week. It is not clear how long of a delay the administration is considering seeking...  Anthony Romero, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, assailed the Obama administration for considering such ideas. He noted that the administration of President [sic] George W. Bush, which was heavily criticized by civil-liberties groups, never proposed such modifications to criminal procedures.
