If I may quote myself (though I'm embarrassed by the typo):
I think Obama should test Republicans' newfound concern for civil liberties right now by saying he's closing Gitmo.— Steve M. (@nomoremister) March 7, 2013
Seriously -- do it now. Let's see how thoughtfully moral the new post-neocon Republicans really are.
A guy who writes for Townhall responded to this:
There are Americans there? MT @nomoremister Obama should test Republicans' newfound concern for civil liberties by saying he's closing Gitmo— Derek Hunter (@derekahunter) March 8, 2013
I point out his response because it reveals what I believe is the difference between right-wing fans of Rand Paul's filibuster and progressive fans. Progressive fans think Rand was upset about drones. Rand Paul, as far as I can tell, was upset only about drones aimed at U.S. citizen noncombatants on U.S. territory only.
And his right-wing fans seem to be the same. They don't care about any other issue that progressives would put under the rubric of civil liberties/due process/human rights/rule of law. They don't think foreigners who come into contact with U.S. military power have any rights that Americans are bound to respect.
