This Social Democrat Liberal blogger is willing to follow the truth wherever it may lead. I ask my fellow progressives to divest themselves of knee jerk reactions. I urge this as an American first and as a Social Democrat second. I have watched several Liberal commentators lament that Nidal Hassan was sending e-mails to a known Islamic Radical Cleric yet Dr. Hassan was still retained in the military. Please read and follow both the point and counter points and my synthesis at the end.
Democrats can point out that Nidal Hassan had his e-mail monitored but no actions where taken against him. However we can thank the Republicans that we can indeed monitor e-mails! The fact that Democrats condemn the lack of acting on that monitoring is hypocritical! If we had our way there would have been no monitoring to begin with!
