Graham says Sulaiman Abu Ghaith is clearly an enemy combatant and should have been sent straight to the Guantanamo Bay detainee facility in Cuba for extended questioning.
Graham and Ayotte said at hastily arranged news conference Thursday that they worry that the administration's decision to have Abu Ghaith appear in a federal court in New York will establish a precedent. Ayotte says suspects like Abu Ghaith do not deserve the protections of U.S. courts. U.S. law enforcement officials on Thursday confirmed Abu Ghaith's capture.
