Steyn's way with words cannot be beaten. Here he simply demolishes the Boy President's statement on the Detroit bomber.
There’s a difference between an alleged suspect (which is what he is is the President’s fantasy) and an enemy combatant (which is what he is in reality). If this were a war, we would question him about who he hooked up with in Yemen, who did he meet with in London, and maybe get a lead on attacks to come. Instead, the authorities, having issued the Knickerbomber a multi-entry visa, having permitted him to board the plane, and having failed to detect his incendiary unwear, now allow him to lawyer up and ensure that we’ll never know who he knew in Yemen or anywhere else
Hard to tell those differences, though, from the putting green.
While our President resides in Fantasyland, the rest of us deal with the consequences.
Nothing wrong with a summary execution in this case. After all, it's on video...

Welcome back Jimmy Carter.
