42. LOL

Because so many Bush supporters have worked for the Center for Constitutional Rights. LOL. Greenwald is not a Republican. How many of his columns have you actually read?

As I wrote previously, I disagree with his kind words about Ron Paul, but Greenwald's criticisms of the President'd foreign policy are mostly valid. Many of the President's policies in this area are neo-con policies.

Why are you supporting the neo-con policies on DU?

I am defending him because I believe in international law, abhor preventive detention, have experienced enough war and support fundamental human rights. I don't like the total surveillance society, where muslims and others are presumed to be unamerican solely because they are muslims or dissidents. I despise the repeated drone attacks, tasked and accomplished nonchalantly, that kill toddlers because such lives are cheap and expendable. I believe that a President can only wage war with the approval of the Congress. I support transparency and not the total secrecy of the national security state because the People have a right to know what its government does in their name and i know government officials hide everything they can. I dislike the covert terror being waged against Iran, as disagreeable as that regime is. And that's just for starters.
