Simmons' opinion doesn't match his record

I agree with Rob Simmons views about our drone program, "Nation of Drones," (Feb. 13). I also have serious issues with its lack of due process. However, Rob Simmons isn't the right person to be a spokesperson. He had no problems with the Bush administration and its torture program, or its spying on American citizens without approval from the same FISA Court that he faults Obama from not using. He questions the Justice Department memos that approved the drone program but had no problems with the Justice Department and the John Yoo memos that approved torture under the Bush administration.

His opinion article smells more like partisan politics than any true conviction. I suggest an Internet search on "Rob Simmons views on torture."
