Bob Cesca and A Very Serious Man on Al-Awlaki.

Bob Cesca tweets a link to his thoughts on Glenn Greenwald's tête-à-tête with Andrew Sullivan on Real Time [], and Glenn opts to respond, as Glenn only can.
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald

@bobcesca_go You've embraced the core Bush/Yoo Terror theory: no rights for **accused combatants, and the President alone decides. Congrats

@ggreenwald @bobcesca_go Bob hates our freedom. He'd prefer a totalitarian state with a powerful dictator, the tiny penis syndrome.

Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald

@phpress @bobcesca_go Only when there's a Democrat in office - he'll discover the Constitution again when there's a Big Bad Republican

Bob Cesca @bobcesca_go

.@ggreenwald @phpress So I've abandoned the Constitution for party politics? This kind of kneejerk reaction is poisoning the debate, Glenn.

Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald

@bobcesca_go @phpress I just explained the *substance in the last tweet - you`ve embraced the Bush/Yoo theory - now that there's a Dem

Bob Cesca @bobcesca_go

.@ggreenwald No. Bush/Yoo justified torture, rendition, wiretaps, suspension of habeas etc - all of which I oppose, irrespective of party.

Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald

@bobcesca_go Hilarious: it's OK to KILL ****accused combatants w/o judicial review, but not to eavesdrop on them or detain them w/o it

Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald

@bobcesca_go Wheter you admit it or not, you`re arguing Bush/Yoo: accused combatants have no rights, and the President alone decides

Bob Cesca @bobcesca_go

.@ggreenwald There's a clear distinction! Al-Awlaki is ONE instance. Torture, wiretaps, etc are happening secretly on a widespread basis.

.@ggreenwald No, there are shades of gray here and you know it. (1/2)

.@ggreenwald Eg: you defended Ron Paul on terrorism even though he voted for the '01 AUMF and introduced HR3076.

@bobcesca_go @ggreenwald The shades of gray there are Bob's partisan loyalty to Obama.

.@ggreenwald War, like politics, is murky. We can justify Hiroshima but condemn Dresden. Praise FDR's liberalism but condemn Japanese camps.

.@Pofli @ggreenwald You clearly don't read my stuff. I've criticized POTUS on a number of occasions - recently the debt ceiling deal.

In 1993, the attempted arrest of Mohammad Farah Aidid resulted in 19 dead Americans and as many as 1,500 dead Somalis. I am still waiting for Greenbeck to tell me how that is preferable to a drone strike.
