    Jim Wright’s blog is always good for intelligent and thought provoking comments and these two are no exception.

    I stopped reading the article (linked in first comment) after he justified killing of Awlaki. And also suggesting that these same people were impeaching Obama for it, all of neocons praise Obama for killing Awlaki without trial, so not sure what is this guy referring to.

    There are two camps as far as I can see, love-Obama camp, which will justify anything he does while hate-Obama camp, which will criticize anything he does. Both camps ignore their own existence. Neutral can easily see.

    I condemn Obama for killing innocent civilians, and I condemn him for not taking the proper route to handle Awlaki (and definitely killing his son was not needed). I applaud Obama for bringing Bergdhal back and trying to close gitmo.

    Don, thanks for posting those links. A very interesting read. I’ve had Stonekettle Station in my blog links for a while, but I haven’t had time to read much recently.

    Hassan, you forgot the third camp — the people who just dismiss the first two camps as being equally wrong. You know, people like you. You have been reading this blog for a while, so you know that I have no problem condemning Obama when he does something I disagree with.
