WH he will not be tried as enemy combatant [View all]

BOSTON -- The White House said Monday that the surviving Boston bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, would not be tried as an enemy combatant but would be prosecuted as a terrorist under civilian law.
White House spokesman Jay Carney's statement appeared to resolve several days of questions about what Tsarnaev's legal status would be. Carney cited a number of successful prosecutions in U.S. courts of terrorism suspects.
Seven days after the Boston Marathon bombings, the city was bustling Monday, with runners hitting the pavement, children walking to school and enough cars clogging the streets to make the morning commute feel almost back to normal in the hours before the traumatic week would be marked with mournful silence.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has asked residents to observe a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m. Monday, the time the first of the two bombs exploded near the finish line. Bells will toll across the city and state after the minute-long tribute to the victims.


Thank you Obama
