I read this nutjob letter to the editor on the Seattle Times web page.
More background, please
Jonah Goldberg and Charles Krauthammer frequently write as though they are the Voice of Israel. They are rarely, if ever, critical of any decision or action taken by Israel. For these writers to venture opinions [July 10] about the U.S. Supreme Court decision of Hamdan v. Rumsfeld that curtails Bush's grand ploy of absolute monarchy-dictatorship is beyond chutzpah.
Please enlighten your readers about the background of these two writers. Do they, along with Secretary Michael Chertoff, hold dual citizenship? Since Krauthammer advances the cause of military tribunals with suspects detained and locked away without legal counsel or their day in court, it is clear that he favors dictatorial powers for the unitary executive. Since Goldberg feels that SuperBush's cloak has been shortened by the Supremes, perhaps he would like to have a trial visit to Gitmo with all legal rights removed so he can write with authenticity about that grim prison that is likened to the Black Hole of Calcutta.
I am curious. Do they, along with Ann Coulter, advocate assassination for justices who curtail Bush's power to commit war crimes? They come just short of making such a recommendation.

and decided Jonah Goldberg might enjoy it so I sent him an email. He then posted the letter on NRO's The Corner and an update which has a link to the letter writers website, Bush Watch.
