Monday, November 26, 2012's disappointing anti-Rand Paul straw man

I clicked on this morning and found this disappointing headline:
Rand Paul Threatens Filibuster Of Defense Bill to Release Potential Terrorists.
 Sounds pretty bad, doesn't it?!?

When you read the article, however, you discover:
He's threatening to filibuster Defense funding unless he gets a vote on an amendment that would curtail indefinite detention of potential terrorists.
In other words,  Rand Paul is talking about repealing the NDAA, not releasing Islamic Terrorists.

Disappointing; can and should do better.
