    Remind me again who it was that signed the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, wouldn't release legal justification for drone strikes, prosecuted whistle-blowers, continued to issue "national security letters", extended the FISA warrantless wiretap program, didn't even try to prosecute anyone for torture and more or less has been Bush noir on civil liberties?

    If that was the sort of "war on terror" conduct I wanted from the White House, I would have voted Republican.

      On all those things but Graham, McCain and King were the ones running their pie holes on this particular incident to deny an American citizen accused of a horrific crime due process.

        We sadly expect that sort of thing from Republicans. I just thought it would be nice if we could tell always see a clear difference between the two sides.
