No rights for enemy combatants

Sounds like "The justice department ruled that some 600 so-called enemy combatants at Bagram have no constitutional rights." Ed Morrissey asks, " Remember how the Left considered Bush a war criminal for taking this exact position?"

President Obama is now sending 17,000 troops into a war in Afghanistan which many say cannot be won and which his own general says will take at least five years; and now President Obama takes the same position as President Bush on enemy combatants!

Will the mainstream media, Hollywood elites, and the rest of the Left now hold mass protests in the streets, begin equating Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler and chant, "Obama lied, people died," as they did with President Bush? Will we now have congressional hearings on closing down the detention facility at Bagram Air Base?

Or was much of the anti-war, anti-Bush, hysteria just so much hypocrisy by a bunch of "useful idiots" who were duped and used to orchestrate a Democratic power grab.

I guess it worked, and for many people, that's all that counts.
