Fox & Friends is furious that suspected NYC attacker is going through the criminal justice system: “We're in a war”

Brian Kilmeade: “He is way too comfortable. I'm not saying torture, but there's got to be a way for these terrorists not to feel as though they're in the promised land in our hospital.”

From the November 2 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And [the New he could be looking at the death penalty. He is way too comfortable. I'm not saying torture, but there's got to be a way for these terrorists not to feel as though they're in the promised land in our hospital. He also complained about his wounds when he was in the wheelchair, which he demanded, while he was being read his rights. He is way too comfortable.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Yeah his public defender asked for them to change --

KILMEADE: Keep in mind, he is actually looking at his iPhone of people being run over by tanks and shot in the face, and at the same time he's complaining about his wounds after he gets medical treatment, smiling ear to ear about what he did. There is a fundamental inequity to what's going on right now. And we are not getting what he knows into our intelligence people's hands. Law enforcement doesn't know what he knows. And that's the problem. 


KILMEADE: By evening, somebody in the district court read him his rights. For some reason, our attorney general was just sitting on his hands. He never stepped up, got on the same page, and decided if he should be looked at as an enemy combatant. Remember, George Bush took his enemy combatant, one, and put him in South Carolina in the brig for 30 days. It's not so much what happens to him. It's we need to know what he knows and who else he’s in contact with. 


KILMEADE: This guy is an enemy combatant, should be treated like that if we're serious about keeping our people safe. Your mindset should be this: What if that was your family member that was run over at that bike path on a 56-degree beautiful day? And I think people are distancing themselves, trying to put him through the criminal justice system, and they're not acknowledging that we're in a war.
