#1 That goes for American enemy combatants, too -- continued foot-stamping to the contrary from progressives and libertarians notwithstanding

Admittedly I lifted a stained beverage as Bon voyage to Anwar al- Awlaki's untimely, albeit fiery, passage to meet his promised virgins. But what Mr. McCarthy fails to say is al-Awlaki was never charged much less convicted of any crime. His citizenship was never revoked and most importantly he was never designated as an enemy combatant. So yeah, I will do some foot-stamping (even for a turd like al-Awlaki) when any US citizen's liberties are denied.

#2 .....he [Triple-A] was never designated as an enemy combatant.

But he was someone who had evidently communicated with MAJ Nadal Hasan, and who knows what other "American Citizens" of a similar leaning.

#3 After four years of watching Obama enthusiastically adopt what he once condemned, we now know Bush detractors were animated by politics, not conviction.

...were animated by politics and a hatred for their perceived enemies; conservatives, not conviction.

#4 "we now know Bush detractors were animated by politics"

We now know? We who, exactly? The "we" at Rantburg knew that 8 years ago, or more. >:-(
