Somewhere Dick Cheney Is Not Happy

The Times Square bomb-maker pleads guilty.

The defendant, Faisal Shahzad, 30, listened as each of 10 counts was read to him in Federal District Court in Manhattan, and indicated he understood the charges and penalties he faced.

Mr. Shahzad recounted how and why he conceived the plot, traveling to Pakistan last year, joining the Taliban and receiving training in how to construct a bomb.

See what happens when you don’t torture and waterboard a guy but just Mirandize him and talk and talk? He pleads guilty. Where’s the fun in that?

PS: Note to Andrew McCarthy of the National Review who wrote a scathing editorial about how the Obama administration is bungling their prosecution of terrorists: The words you’re looking for are “Never mind.”
