The German government went downhill in terror hysteria, but not this badly (yet)

.
(hat tip to BoingBoing)

The government dropped a bomb on a U.S. citizen,
who, though a total dick and probably a criminal, may have been engaged only in propaganda,
which, though despicable, is generally protected by the First Amendment;
it did so without a trial or even an indictment (that we know of),
based at least in part on evidence it says it has but won't show anyone,
and on a legal argument it has apparently made but won't show anyone,
and the very existence of which it will not confirm or deny;
although don't worry, because the C.I.A. would never kill an American without having somebody do a memo first;
and this is the "most transparent administration ever";
currently run by a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Imagine anyone would have told you during the Clinton administration that this would happen.

  1. I think the real iron punch of irony comes from Obama's peace prize, up to that it's what I would consider "standard US policy". The norwegians sure are strange in their choice of laureates...
