Moral Relativism

Funny how when you put the actions of a bad guy next to the actions of an evil guy, the bad guy comes across as being truly heroic.  I’m referring, of course, to George Bush vis a vis Dick Cheney.  There was the Scooter Libby pardoning thing, and now there’s this, via the NYT:

Some of the advisers to President George W. Bush, including Vice President Dick Cheney, argued that a president had the power to use the military on domestic soil to sweep up the terrorism suspects, who came to be known as the Lackawanna Six, and declare them enemy combatants.

Mr. Bush ultimately decided against the proposal to use military force.

Well, thank God for small favors.
