Senator Feinstein and Congressman King Offer Differing Views on Boston Bomber


Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said suspect #2 in the Boston bombing, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, is in "no condition to be interrogated at this point and time."


Davis said the brothers were clearly planning more attacks, probably against soft targets.


"Clearly they had other explosives, they detonated them" in the Watertown chase, Davis said, adding that a "significant amount" of explosives were found at the scene of the arrest.


Davis also said that authorities were not closing in on the suspects when the FBI released the photos, but that they "decided to go active" after their pictures were publicized.


Two leading Congressional members in intelligence and foreign policy matters also joined "Fox News Sunday" and gave their take on the events throughout the week as well as the ongoing investigation.


Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee and Representative Pete King (R-NY), a former chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, took different positions on how the investigation should proceed.



Senator Feinstein argued forcefully that Dzhokar Tsarnaev should not be treated as an enemy combatant.


"It would be unconstitutional to do that," she said.


Feinstein said that federal authorities are competent to conduct this investigation, along with the help of HIG, the interrogation unit formed in 2009.


Feinstein added that she believes this will likely be a death penalty case under federal law.



King took the opposite point of view.


The congressman said he is not as concerned with a conviction, he thinks that will happen, but the intelligence his top priority.
