Bushs mere due-process-free eavesdropping on and detention of American citizens caused such liberal outrage, while Obamas due-process-free execution of them has not.
Beyond that, Obama has used drones to kill Muslim children and innocent adults by the hundreds. He has refused to disclose his legal arguments for why he can do this or to justify the attacks in any way. He has even had rescuers and funeral mourners deliberately targeted. As Hayden said: Right now, there isnt a government on the planet that agrees with our legal rationale for these operations, except for Afghanistan and maybe Israel. But that is all perfectly fine with most American liberals now that their Partys Leader is doing it [...]
The Democratic Party owes a sincere apology to George Bush, Dick Cheney and company for enthusiastically embracing many of the very Terrorism policies which caused them to hurl such vehement invective at the GOP for all those years. And progressives who support the views of the majority as expressed by this poll should never be listened to again the next time they want to pretend to oppose civilian slaughter and civil liberties assaults when perpetrated by the next Republican President.

Professional suicide on aisle #3. He’ll never work in this town again!
Well, I am not even going to pretend outrage over the use of drones to kill terrorists.
Wow. This is something. Thanks for posting this.
The article is very well sourced / documented, worth the read.
Yet another one under the radar, under the rug
Goes to show you, anything is tolerable given the psychopath.
We all here know Obama’s secret. His excrement doesn’t stink.
The Left will have a blind eye to the killing when it suits them. When 1.7 million people were executed by the Khmer Rouge Pol Pot regime in Cambodia, the Left sat on their thumbs with the only thing they had concern for was how potent was the pot in their pipes. What does one expect from an amoral world view? Equally outrageous is they tell us they are so morally superior that they can tell us how to live our lives.
Yup, Bush was evil for squirting water up 3 mass murders’ noses and they weren’t even U.S. Citizens or enemy combatants.
Obama KILLS U.S. Citizens without a trial and that’s OK.
“The Left will have a blind eye to the killing when it suits them.”
The author of the particle may be a conservative without realizing it. Conservatives and libertarians are mainly concerned with operating under the rule of law. Progressives and radicals are only concerned with achieving specific objectives and will get there no matter what it takes (although progressives will pay lip service to rule of law then abuse it whenever necessary).

Greenwald is more than a leftist pundit freakout. He’s knowingly spreading both Jihadist/Taliban and communist propaganda.
The US is not targetting innocent civilians at funerals. We are targetting Taliban forces who try to coverup the scene of a drone strike so that:
1. We won’t know who we killed, how many, or how many were wounded, or escaped.
2.They can recover documents and weapons before anyone else gets there.
3. They can hide the bodies from view and claim exaggerated casualties.
The communist line comes in, esp. from Hanoi and the Hanoi Lobby, that Americans deliberately killed only “women, children and old people” in our bombing campaigns over No. Vietnam.
Never mind that photos showed anti-aircraft batteries and missiles located in civilian areas, as well as military stockpiles, etc.
The same claims were levelled against Israel by the PLO in Lebanon until photos showed PLO tanks and anti-aircraft weapons housed between civilian housing projects.
THE SAME FOR HAMAS’s rocket and mortar firing sites in GAZA.
Greenwald knows that he is an anti-American propagandist for the Taliban. Let’s label him for what he is, A TRAITOR.
Our collective response to the charge of killing unarmed civilians should be Clint Eastwood’s words from the “Unforgiven”. “They should of armed themselves when they decided to associate with Al Qaida and the Taliban.”
....[obama] has even had rescuers and funeral mourners deliberately targeted...
clinton and the Euro clintonoids targeted rescuers in Serbia in 1999!!!! (I’m not sure about funeral mourners.)
Bush's... eavesdropping on and detention of American citizens caused such liberal outrage, while [Zero]'s due-process-free execution of them has not... [Zero] has used drones to kill Muslim children and innocent adults by the hundreds... refused to disclose his legal arguments for why he can do this or to justify the attacks in any way. He has even had rescuers and funeral mourners deliberately targeted... But that is all perfectly fine with most American liberals now that their Party's Leader is doing it [...] The Democratic Party owes a sincere apology to George Bush, Dick Cheney and company for enthusiastically embracing many of the very Terrorism policies which caused them to hurl such vehement invective at the GOP for all those years.Glenn Greenwald:
Clint Eastwood had a way with words, didn’t he?
So did PATTON.
Took me all of three minutes to write that. Next I shall write not one but two auto biographies on myself and and declare myself the czar that doth not stinketh. Move over Bill Ayers!
