McCain: Take NYC Suspect to Gitmo; Trump ‘Considering’ It

Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham on Wednesday advocated that New York City terror attack suspect Sayfullo Saipov be held as an “enemy combatant” and taken to the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay—an idea President Trump said he is weighing, the Daily Beast reports.
“Take him to Guantanamo. He’s a terrorist and he should be kept there. And there’s no Miranda rights for somebody who kills Americans,” McCain told reporters at the U.S. Capitol.
In a separate statement, McCain said Saipov “should not be read Miranda rights, as enemy combatants are not entitled to them.” Saipov is a legal permanent resident, having come to the U.S. in 2010 on Diversity Immigrant lottery visa. Graham added: “[He] should be held as enemy combatant under the law of war.” During a brief press availability, Trump said he will “certainly consider” the Gitmo option for the terror suspect.


  1. McCain is a racist and HE should be thrown in Gitmo. His inflammatory statements will only enrage the Muslims more, to do more acts of terror. Mr. McCain, with his outrageous hurtful words, will cause backlash against the Muslim American community. You just can’t trust those evil white males.

  2. Ours is a country of laws and we must follow the law, even for vermin like this terrorist. That said, I sincerely wish that his remaining days are spent in physical and mental misery, and that his confinement is quickly terminated by his execution.
