Terrorism: Where the right is now versus two years ago


A lot of opposition seems to have cropped up to the newer more intrusive searched in response to the “underwear” bomber.

Those on the right 2 years ago under Bush would have been all for this. To question any intrusion on our freedom if it was in the name of security was to be with the terrorists.

Now the right instead suggest the new airport searches are too intrusive (about friggin time), and suggest a little more willingness to be be lean more heavily on those of Muslim extraction would make this unnecessary for “real” Americans.

Finally the argument is being made that terrorist attacks have increased under Obama.

Color me skeptical but not totally dismissive of these born again civil libertarians. Here are a couple of links. Informed comments are welcome.
