... I actually agree with Boss Obama's drone strikes against al Qaeda (and whatever other radical Islamist terror groups), even if they include American citizens. Why should it matter what your current citizenship is if you freely decide to join a bunch of illegal combatants in order to do violence to innocent people? It shouldn't, in my opinion (and in that of many others, too).
The issue is the brazen, unadulterated hypocrisy of the mainstream media and the Left as a whole on this matter. When the previous administration went to great lengths to justify how they waged the war on radical Islamists, it was pilloried on a daily basis by the MSM, and "progressives" staged "peace" marches and complained hourly about human rights abuses.
Now, we see this: New York Times and Washington Post Knew About Secret Drone Base In Saudi Arabia and Agreed Not to Report It. And this. And this -- the NYT puts the story on page eleven. And this. The liberal Kirsten Powers nails it: "They're clearly hypocrites. They clearly don't really care about human rights. They only care if it helps them politically."
Meanwhile, locally, our Local Gaggle of Moonbat Bloggers -- who bitched and moaned daily when George W. Bush was offering legal opinions much less controversial than Boss Obama's -- is now concentrating on the great import of stuff like Chris Christie's weight, Karl Rove and GOP infighting, and Fox News ditching Dick Morris.Posted by Hube at February 7, 2013 11:10 AM | TrackBack
