I am NO fan of this administration (not even a teeny tiny bit) but it was the right call not making him an enemy combatant.

Again. he's a United States citizen. You go down a very VERY slippery slope if our government decides when to pick and choose taking away our rights. And no.. you're rights as an American citizen don't magically disappear even if you kill people in the name of Islam.

Now.. if he was here on a visa, that would be a totally different story.
