The Neocons and Freedom
The always excellent Glenn Greenwald writes in Salon today about the pernicious, un-American values of the neoconservative movement. One of the leaders in that movement, Frank Gaffney, has a curious belief that members of Congress who oppose the Leader's war policies should be tried for treason - - a hanging offense. Read Greenwald's take down. The bottom line: how can a movement that's deeply hostile to freedom at home (see illegal surveillance programs, indefinite detention, calls for dissenters to be hung, etc.) possibly spread freedom throughout the Middle East through war after war?
