Thank you Tim 724 :)
Greenwald isn't an all-out libertarian and never claimed to be..
About a month ago:
"Greenwald isn't an all-out libertarian and never claimed to be, so I don't think he shares that idea of a republic that people like us believe in.
He is, however, a brilliant and intellectually consistent/honest liberal and civil liberties advocate who we can work with a great deal. I see allying with Greenwald like allying with Kucinich on issues like war. Dr Paul always talks about making coalitions in areas where possible, even if you don't necessarily share an overall philosophy.
All that said, I don't think it's a bad idea to footnote your general support for Greenwald with some points of philosophical disagreement or to flesh out those disagreements in a forum like this. But, I don't feel it is worth it to let those disagreements prevent you from supporting Greenwald on issues where there is agreement and possibility for tangible positive change."

Glenn Greenwald (born March 6, 1967) is an American political journalist, lawyer, columnist, blogger, and author. In August 2012, he left Salon.com, where he was a columnist, to become a columnist at the US edition of The Guardian newspaper, to which he has contributed since June 2011. Politically, Greenwald described himself as independent when he first began writing about politics in 2005, though others now see him as a liberal or progressive.
Greenwald worked as a constitutional and civil rights litigator before becoming a contributor (columnist and blogger) to Salon.com, where he focused on political and legal topics. He has also contributed to other newspapers and political news magazines, including The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The American Conservative, The National Interest, and In These Times.
Greenwald has written four books, three of which have been New York Times bestsellers: How Would a Patriot Act? (2006); A Tragic Legacy (2007), and With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful, released in October 2011. He also wrote Great American Hypocrites (2008).
Greenwald has received awards including the first Izzy Award for independent journalism, in 2009, and the 2010 Online Journalism Award for Best Commentary. Greenwald is a frequent speaker on college campuses, including Harvard Law School, Yale Law School, the University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, UCLA School of Law, the University of Wisconsin, the University of Maryland and others. He also appears on various radio and television programs as a guest political pundit.
