The Washington Post is almost believably shocked to discover that the practice of rendition has returned to Clinton-era levels:
…it is not known how many renditions have taken place during Obama’s first term. But his administration has not disavowed the practice.
Hot Air called this a ‘surprise.’ I know that they’re being sarcastic, because those folks were as aware of the situation with regard to rendition as I have been, for about as long as I have been. Although I have to admit, I am slightly surprised by just how willing the antiwar movement was to roll over and show its belly on the subject of drone strikes; I assumed at the time that the Left actually meant it when they said that they had a problem with summarily executing jihadis. Turns out that it’s apparently sexy to progressives when it’s a Democratic President writing out the kill list.
