6. I'm more concerned about Brennan given that Obama and the American public openly support
extrajudicial killings and enhanced interrogation now.

The 180 degree shift in opinion on gay marriage just show how flexible people's worldview is.

You would expect them to be consistent one way or the other... but it's possible to shift the
Overton Window radically in any direction, suggesting that most people really don't have a
moral compass and it's just the "stubborn eccentrics" of the world that stick to their position
until convinced otherwise by something other than popular opinion.
