Senators speak out on the Boston tragedy

April 22, 2013

U-S Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina says the Boston Marathon bombings show America’s strong resolve against national acts of terrorism. In the Weekly Republican Address, Scott said, “To those who would attack America or our citizens, let me say this—there is no corner on earth, no hiding place in America to keep us from finding you.” Scott says America stands together for Boston. Meantime, Scott’s South Carolina Republican counterpart, Lindsey Graham, applauds the decision to not read Miranda rights to the surviving suspect. Graham, along with Senator McCain and Congressmen Ayotte and King, said, “We are encouraged our High Value detainee investigation team (HIG) is now involved and working to gather intelligence about how these terrible acts were committed and possibility of future attacks….However, we have concerns that limiting this investigation to 48 hours and exclusively relying on the public safety exception to Miranda, could very well be a national security mistake. It could severely limit our ability to gather critical information about future attacks from this suspect.”
