Set aside the Democrats’ claim to support the troops by bringing them home prematurely. This is worse. And when the left pretends to be insulted at the suggestion that they are soft on terror, show them this. The Democrats are not happy. They are not happy that they were not successful in killing the most effective anti-terror tools in the toolbox. This is what being soft on terror is, beginning with the notion that ‘enemy combatants’ be afforded constitutional protections, including lawyers at taxpayers expense (of course).
The Democrats‘ failure to rein in wiretapping without warrants, close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay or restore basic legal rights such as habeas corpus for terrorism suspects has opened the party’s leaders to fierce criticism from some of their staunchest allies — on Capitol Hill, among liberal bloggers and at interest groups.
A reminder to liberal bloggers and liberal interest groups . . .
to believe this
is to ignore this.
