Re: “Obama's realpolitik drone strategy

Lyons, if you actually took your job seriously you'd see that on Greenwald's blog he talks about what he'd like to do with terrorists a few hundred words down from the article you I assume skimmed over. Sheesh, talk about a failure of due diligence.

Re: “Obama's realpolitik drone strategy

Mr. Lyons-

Guilty of what you observe in others, you muddled Mr. Greenwald's point which is that you employed the same rhetorical strategy as Karl Rove, by implying that there are no alternatives to bombing Muslim's forever, or that the only alternative is "coddling" them by applying the rule of law. It was considered an offensive tactic beyond the pale of reasonable discourse when it was used against your coreligionists in the Democratic Party by Mr. Rove during the Bush years, and yet here you employ it wholeheartedly and with only the thinnest veneer of intellectual coherence to distract from its repugnance. Do you recall the last sentence that you wrote in this column, or is the flow of endorphins you get from defending murder committed by our potentate in chief outside of the rule of law affecting your short-term memory?

Greenwald can speak for himself and he does- read him if you want to discover alternatives to shoot first ask questions later "international policy." Nobody has to summarize his worldview for your benefit. But if you want to criticize it, I recommend further inquiry and a more careful approach lest you embarrass yourself again similarly.
