Senator Lindsey Graham wants the suspect accused of running down multiple people in New York City on Tuesday to be labeled an enemy combatant. Sayfullo (sigh-fool-oh) Saipov (sigh-pov), Uzbek immigrant, is accused of mowing down at least 8 people with a rented truck along a bicycle path in Lower Manhattan. If he is assigned the title of enemy combatant, he could be interrogated without a lawyer present. Speaking to reports on Wednesday, Graham said quote "If you take up arms against the United States in the name of radical Islam, you should be treated as a terrorist ... You’ll never convince me that the best way to gather intelligence in this war…is reading them their Miranda rights."
