As I continue to ponder the President’s plea for transparency in Ferguson, MO where a black man was shot by a white officer and the call to demilitarize the local police department, one question comes to mind that won’t go away. Is this the same President that has approved and blessed “authorizing the indefinite military detention of civilians, including U.S. citizens, without habeas corpus or due process” in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012? The same man that took an oath to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution?
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain! Are you old enough to know who said that?
