    Sen. Graham: Suspect an ‘Enemy Combatant’

    WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 19: U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) talks with reporters as Senate Republicans and Democrats head to their weekly policy luncheon on March 19, 2013 in Washington, DC. The Senate is expected to pass a revised continuing resolution and send their edits back to the House in order to prevent a government shutdown next week, but any action in the Senate may be delayed until later in the week.
