In Defense of The Obama Civil Liberties Record

How Obama Became a Civil Libertarian's Nightmare | | AlterNet:

How do you defend the indefensible
I don't know
For example I see no reason for the
President allowing Bradley Manning to waste away behind bars

But let me suggest
that the President has made up his mind
to try to break the syndrome of ground wars
that has been our downfall since the end of WW2

He is therefore willing to throw meat to the Right Wing
so he can achieve a grand purpose

Is this an end that justifies such means


Someone I will not name once said that
if you worry about ends and means all the time
in the rough and tumble of power politics
you wind up on your end
without any means
