SPYGATE OR PROTECTING AMERICA? Posted By Rick January 26th, 2006
HILLARY RANTS AGAINST IT….THE PRESIDENT RE-ASSURES US ABOUT IT…AN BIN LADEN FEARS IT… but what I’m most concerned about is, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT NOW?
I haven’t talked about this issue for a while which is why I want to take your pulse on President Bush’s terrorist surveillance program…or as the liberal media likes to call it : BUSH’S Super Secret Domestic Spying/ Eavesdropping. How scary sounding!
I’ve actually heard liberals say you should be afraid of Bush because he is listening to every single phone call you make, and if your name sounds like “Al Qaeda” or “Jihad” you will be picked up by the secret Bush imperialist police!!!
Can you imagine living your life in that much fear? Lord.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton called President Bush’s explanations for eavesdropping on domestic conversations without warrants “strange” and “far-fetched” Wednesday in blistering criticism ahead of the president’s State of the Union address.
“Obviously, I support tracking down terrorists. I think that’s our obligation. But I think it can be done in a lawful way,” Hillary spewed.
WOAH HILLARY… NO ONE HAS PROVEN IT’S ILLEGAL. IN FACT, PEOPLE THAT KNOW A LOT MORE ABOUT THIS AND ARE LESS PARTISAN THAN YOU SAY IT IS LEGAL, AND THAT BUSH HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DO IT.
But Hillary went on to say…”Their argument that it’s rooted in the authority to go after al-Qaeda is far-fetched,” she said in an apparent reference to a congressional resolution passed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack. The Bush administration has argued that the resolution gave the president authority to order such electronic surveillance as part of efforts to protect the nation from terrorists.
President Bush, defending the surveillance program, said Americans should take Osama bin Laden seriously when he says he’s going to attack again.
“When he says he’s going to hurt the American people again, or try to, he means it,” Bush told reporters at National Security Agency where the surveillance program is based. “I take it seriously, and the people of NSA take it seriously.”
So here is my question… How could any red blooded Al Qaeda fearing American be against this?
I mean seriously, do you think that our government is so effective and efficient that they are capable of spying on each and every one of us? Get real.
Has enough time gone by that the liberal media and scaredy types had an effect on you?By the way…coming up next month…there will be HEARINGS ON THE LEGALITY OF THIS? Sort of like the 911 commission.
DO YOU THINK THAT WILL DO ANY GOOD, OR JUST TELL AL QUEDA EXACTLY WHAT TYPE OF SPYING WE ARE UP TO?
