WASHINGTON — The political bickering and posturing over the questioning of the Christmas Day bomber continued in true Washington fashion Sunday.

Ex-Vice President Dick Cheney, who some may view as being on a campaign to prop up or save his legacy, went on ABC and said the administration should have considered everything up to waterboarding when questioning the infamous Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Then Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) went on Fox and criticized the administration for reading the bomber his Miranda rights “within 50 minutes”.

Then on Sunday, according to the Washington Post, “senior administration officials” released information saying that the bomber was read his Miranda rights 9 hours — not 50 minutes — after his arrest.

After 50 minutes of questioning, the story goes, medical personnel said his condition had deteriorated to the point questioning was no longer possible.

Then nine hours later, the Post reports:”New FBI agents meet with Abdulmutallab in his hospital room. He says he will not answer their questions and “acted like a jihadi. He is read his Miranda rights.”
