Over at the popular liberal website, Counterpunch, Mike Whitney is actually arguing….ah, why don’t I just let you be surprised by the stupidity,
Bush has done everything in his power to place himself above the law, particularly when it comes to deciding issues of life and death. These are not matters that should be left to the flawed judgment of one man. By ignoring the flagrant violations of the law in the imprisonment and subsequent torture of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, we further reinforce the precedents that Bush is setting. That’s a blueprint for dictatorship.
…However horrible he may be, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed poses no threat to our system or our freedom. Bush does. We’d be better off letting one guilty man free than destroying the laws that protect all of us from liberty’s greatest enemy; the State.
Mohammed has been abducted, tortured, and deprived of his rights. Give him an ankle bracelet, and let him go.
Yes, that’s right, we have a liberal actually arguing that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the 9/11 mastermind who personally beheaded Daniel Pearl, should be released with an “ankle bracelet.”
Isn’t it funny that when it comes to Republicans like George Bush, liberals like this guy seem to want nothing more than to see him in a jail cell for daring to disagree with them politically. But, when it comes to people who have actually killed Americans and hate our country, they find every excuse in the book to give them a break.
What was it that Ann Coulter said about liberals? Oh yes,
“Whether they are defending the Soviet Union or bleating for Saddam Hussein, liberals are always against America. They are either traitors or idiots, and on the matter of America’s self-preservation, the difference is irrelevant.”
Truer words were never spoken.
PS: Waterboarding isn’t torture and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has never been tortured by the US. If anything, Mohammed and the other terrorists at Gitmo have received treatment and rights that are far beyond anything they deserve.
PS #2: If Obama gets elected, how many Mike Whitneys do you think will end up in the DOJ? More than a few, I’d bet…
