  •  Oh please. If the US tried Snowden in absentia, (0+ / 0-)

    this site would explode in outrage, and you know it.
    But the pure progressives applaud trials by absentia in other countries when it suits their purpose.  Hypocrisy is a human trait, fine, but progressives like to pretend that they're all about integrity and consistency.  They're just as hypocritical as the unwashed masses they pretend to be intellectually and morally superior to.

    •  If you want to accuse people of hypocrisy, (1+ / 0-)

      why don't you find examples of positions they've actually taken, rather than positions they might hypothetically take?

      I remember some (cough, cough) pretending that it's hypocritical to support Snowden and condemn Scooter Libby.  Forgive me if I take accusations of hypocrisy, even ones not totally hypothetical, to be extremely weak arguments.

      If you think this torture-enabling convict deserves a new trial, why don't you just say so?

      I want to see Snowden get a fair trial, an impartial jury, and the same sentence James Clapper gets for lying to Congress.
