(MyNews4.com & KRNV) – Boston bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will not be treated as an enemy combatant according to a tweet by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

Tsarnaev is a naturalized U.S. citizen. Carney says that under U.S. law U.S. citizens cannot be tried in military commissions. Carney says that since Sept. 11, 2001, the federal court system has been used to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists.
