Vastleft's American Extremists: In Greenwald's take on Obama's likely reversal on trying KSM
The Washington Post is reporting that Obama has decided Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will not have his day in court: Too dangerous to national security and the safety of our troops. So it looks like continued detention for KSM.
Glenn Greenwald notes this disappointing action by Obama, but he focuses of how Obama's supporters will most likely react. Given previous flip flops, the Democrats who had been praising Obama's strong and meritorious stands for the rule of law and supporting the Constitution will flip with Obama. Suddenly they will find the arguments made by the right against Obama's earlier stand and actions to be just fine, since Obama himself will be using them.
Greenwald finds this extremely disappointing and uses one of Vastleft's cartoons to further illustrate what's going on. (First update)
Good read. Good points.
Great that Vastleft's work is getting exposure to a nice sized new audience.
