NDAA outcry grows

I remember the controversy around the Military Commissions Act back in 2006, when anyone who was anyone in the left end of the blogosphere was saying that the act repealed habeas corpus. There was a ruckus.

My guess is that if Obama pushed for the NDAA before the debt ceiling debacle this summer then most liberals wouldn’t have said much. That debate was a game-changer, and the “Obama colludes with the right” position isn’t as implausible as it once was.
