What goes through your head to jump from that tweet to the idea that GG supports Foust re Kazakhstan? Foust wrote an article on a completely different subject (that, at a skim, seems reasonable) and GG tweeted that it was a good article. So what?

James Dobson is a worthless ****bag, but if he ever accidentally got something right, and I said so, that hardly means I'm supporting all of his other nonsense.

Re: Glenn Greenwald Containment Thread

Klinker has established on page 1 that the magic word "until" renders a time period definite. In case you still don't get it, here's an illustrative example:

We won't release you until we do

Notice how "until" causes the duration of detention to be definite!

Re: Glenn Greenwald Containment Thread

I'll be very surprised if there is a declaration ending the hostilities in my lifetime. For the same reason authoritarian governments maintain a "state of emergency" for decades: local politics.

Re: Glenn Greenwald Containment Thread

There will not be an end to the "hostilities." Consider this the lull before the next world war.

Re: Glenn Greenwald Containment Thread

The title of that article is a perfect example of why GG is a dishonest hack. By saying that Holder is justifying "executions", he is implying that Holder is talking about prisoners we have under control. But Holder's central argument is that drone strikes are only warranted when capture isn't possible and there is an immediate threat of attack.

Article I read with Holder's side of the story: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...,7945340.story

lol

"we can't find these guys" is not a very good argument considering they kinda have to know where they are in order to assassinate them.

Re: Glenn Greenwald Containment Thread

He did not say "only" when capture isn't possible.

Also, execution does not imply "prisoner who is under control."
