The Anti-War American Left helps sustain Al Qaeda, fights to free its terrorists from Gitmo, protects their rights and fights the drones that kill them.
The Left has been atwitter in the wake of President Obama’s Libya speech, seizing upon his assertion of America’s “responsibility to protect” as evidence of a heartfelt belief in American exceptionalism. Of course, what has made America exceptional has been its political and economic liberty, not some esoteric calling to police the world. That said, the topic prompted Salon’s Glenn Greenwald to question whether America is exceptional at all.
In the wake of the president’s speech earlier this week, during which he attempted to sell his intervention in Libya, leftist commentators have seized upon one of his stated justifications and flaunted it as evidence that he really does think America exceptional. However, the exceptionalism they’re talking about has nothing to do with the historical concept.
Right now there’s a contest going on for most shameless defender of Islamic fascism. It’s The Atlantic’s Andrew Sullivan vs. Salon’s Glenn Greenwald. And Greenwald just took the lead.

Alas, this is unlikely to happen. When one party is represented by ‘oppressed third [...]
Good Riddance to the Jew-haters and Terrorists on the Flotilla to Gaza, Shame on Their Domestic Apologists and Supporters at Salon
Desmond Tutu has condemned the Israelis for defending their waters and their soldiers and for dealing with armed jihadists as armed jihadists should be dealt with. This particular unsavory crew launched their attack with chants celebrating Mohammed’s murder of Jews in the 7th century, which should be a crucial reminder to everyone in denial that [...]
Committed left-winger Glenn Greenwald is laying the smack down on President Obama over at Salon.com over his policy reversals on Guantanamo Bay and the prisoners held there. He is provoked by a New York Times report that the Administration is going to indefinitely hold nearly 50 detainees without trial after a task force concluded that [...]
There is much you could say about Harold E. Ford Jr. on Twitter. Ford is making a run for the NY Senate seat held by fellow Dem Kirsten Gillibrand. Wouldn’t take more than Twitter’s 140 character limit to say that the 39 year old African American is a former congressman from Tennessee and he vows [...]
