Glenn Greenwald - A Great American

I've posted stuff about Glenn Greenwald previously, and about how after a few email exchanges between Glenn and myself, my wife and I got to meet and chat with him.

He is an exceptional American.  Not only is his legal pedigree top notch, but his moral pedigree is amazing.

He is truly a great American, and the video above should be required viewing for all military officers who wish to make good on their oath to the Constitution, and who wish to emulate principle and courage.

Bar talk is no substitute for the real thing.
