    Glenn Greenwald with another powerful, principled column on why civil liberties, the rule of law, justice are important -- for all people. And I will say again: that which we do to the weakest among us we eventually do to ourselves. Anyone who still doesn't understand this, after all these years, after the whipped-up 9/11 hysteria, after the Patriot Act, after the DHS, after the TSA, after the NDAA, after the violations, both at home at abroad, we see all around us, anyone who still doesn't understand this doesn't have a brain. Or simply refuses to use it.

    The evil of indefinite detention and those wanting to de-prioritize it

    (Once again, please excuse font problems; have no idea why this is happening.)

    Minimizing this issue is so foolish. After all, if it were not important, why would it be encoded into law? It is important, and minimizing it is intellectually dishonest and dangerous.

    But that's exactly what establishment liberals are doing. In droves. I've given up talking to my circle of friends about this stuff. They're bots. They excuse every reprehensible thing Obama has done simply because he has a "D" after his name. Just as many Republicans did when Bush was in office. A pox on all their houses. They're alphabet voters, nothing more.
