  •  What Adam Serwer said is not the issue (12+ / 0-)

    We're discussing the diary and the Holder letter.  If you want to pick nits about Serwer, go ahead.

    But we have assassinated a 17 year old American citizen in Yemen with a drone, without a trial or public release of emergency circumstances.  Holder has already expanded due process to claim it can exist entirely in the executive branch.  And the, uh, generous interpretation of the word "imminent" was extensively remarked upon in the Brennan hearings.  In this context the failure to answer a direct question with a direct answer constitutes a pattern of practice with clear and ominous implications.  We would not have failed to see that pattern under Ashcroft, Gonzalez or Mukasey.  Why is it so hard to see under Holder?

    Citizens United defeated by citizens, united.
