Re. Miranda and the public safety exception, this article is decent.
I understand what the article is saying. It sounds to me like we were getting valuable info from the kid until he was mirandized16 hours into the 48 hour time period. Your point on the fed prosecuter attending being part of the doj shows that Holder could be involved. It seems a little random to give the FBI 16 hours of public safety exception and not 48. This isn't your typical fed trial, and whoever gave the call to mirandize the kid may have jeopardized the FBI from getting valuable information.
