Spies, spooks, rats, and Bush

Judge Quits Spy Court in Protest

I have been glad to see at least a few Republicans in the senate stand up and say enough is enough.

"Word of Robertson's resignation came as two Senate Republicans joined the call for congressional investigations into the National Security Agency's warrantless interception of telephone calls and e-mails to overseas locations by U.S. citizens suspected of links to terrorist groups. They questioned the legality of the operation and the extent to which the White House kept Congress informed.

Sens. Chuck Hagel (Neb.) and Olympia J. Snowe (Maine) echoed concerns raised by Arlen Specter (R-Pa.), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who has promised hearings in the new year."

How hard is it to get a warrant on a suspected terrorist, especially when you can do it after the fact? Maybe they're not really watching terrorists. I've read some interesting speculation that this project is not your daddy's wiretap, but some kind of big data mining program that searches through the phone and computer data from many, many, Americans-- looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack (i.e. Osama's phone number, like he still has one). I have a feeling that Bush is going to go down for this one in the end.

Like the disease ridden rat that he is, Jack Abramoff is going to flip and testify against the corrupt politicians that he once worked for.

Hopefully they'll put a few of these bastards in jail, and hopefully they'll be raped and killed there.

Damn, did I just write that? I am getting too bitter, even for my own taste.

Thanks to the person who gave me a dollar yesterday, whoever you are.

You and I are the only true patriots left.

Fuck all the rest of you.

Bah, humbug.

To be honest, I am GLAD Abramoff flipped...rats off a sinking ship may be the best analogy, but it is really funny to think of a few unamed Congressman and aides start hyperventilating when Fox5 News says Abramoff will testify. As for the whole GI Bill thing...well, you know how the government works. Badly.

Yeah, but it doesn't have to.

I agree that abramoff flipping is the best case, because the people who are the real problem (i.e. the ones he works for in congress) are going to get fucked.
