    may have just murdered or has murdered, it's important that we embrace him now, for justice. All joking aside, of course we need to deal with this guy: we should not get into war in Syria, and he can help us, possibly, reach our immediate goals while preventing war.

    The world is complicated.  Avatar of freedom Greenwald is not only revealing important information to Americans about NSA abuses, but is an utter moron about allying himself with extremist rightwing militia groups and other disturbing things.

    I'll take info from evil people, so long as it doesn't make us support evil--more than we already do.

        Or the partner flawed, but the information or opportunity should be grasped.

        I was on twitter earlier and it stuck me that I still want a non-war solution a d still want NSA practices brought under control--even as I also see Putin for who he is. Greenwald has been invaluable, but I think he is practically an ethical nihilist, too.

      Greenwald has always seemed pretty leftish to me. Am I missing something?
