Christmas Day Bombing Suspect Indicted

Ad Feedback

The Nigerian man accused of attempting to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas day was indicted on six charges, Wednesday.

Reports have also surfaced that the Obama administration may try Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in criminal court.

The charges filed against Abdulmutallab include use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted murder.

Some say trying the 23-year-old as a criminal, rather than a terrorist, would be a big mistake.

David Velloney, a law professor at Regent University and former JAG officer, appeared Wednesday on CBN News' Midday program to discuss the legal implications if the U.S.  treats Abdulmutallab as a criminal rather than a terror suspect. Click play for the interview.

Daveed Gartenstein-Ross of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies appeared earlier CBN News' Morning program to weigh in on the matter. Click here to watch the interview.
