While I am ALL FOR treating terrorists as “enemy combatants”, until the cell these two belong to is found (and I personally believe there IS a “cell”), a strong argument can be made these two were loners breaking the laws of civilization on their own initiative, therefore “common criminals”. NOT saying I support this decision, but……

“Boston bombing suspect charged, will not be treated as enemy combatant”

“”He will not be treated as an enemy combatant,” Carney said. “We will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice.”

Carney stressed that the civilian system has been used to try, convict and incarcerate “hundreds of terrorists” since the 9/11 attacks, including the Times Square attempted bomber. “The system has repeatedly proved that it can successfully handle the threats we continue to face,” he said.

Carney noted U.S. citizens — like Tsarnaev — cannot be tried in military commissions under U.S. law.”
